With dental hygiene, our hygienists are trained to remove plaque and tartar from your teeth that regular brushing and flossing cannot accomplish. Our dental hygienists will focus on:
- Tartar and stain removal
- Tooth scaling
- Tooth polishing
- Gum disease prevention
- Cavity prevention
Because we care for your whole health, you will undergo an oral cancer screening using Velscope. We use these modern techniques to catch any early signs of cancer or disease, so we can prevent any serious problems.
Brushing and flossing your teeth daily is vital to maintaining a healthy smile, but even with a solid routine, food or debris can get missed. This is especially true for our younger patients, where reaching every tooth can be difficult. To help with this, Dr. Patel offers sealants, a clear gel that fills in gaps or grooves on the tooth, preventing food and debris from becoming stuck and leading to plaque and decay.
Sealants involve a simple procedure in which Dr. Patel applies a clear plastic coating to your teeth and solidifies it with a special light. Once the sealant has hardened the tooth functions as normal.
Fluoride treatments are safe and non-invasive and a great way to protect your teeth and maintain optimal oral health.
Your gum health directly impacts your overall health. Multiple studies have shown periodontal (gum) disease increases your chances for serious health risks, including:
- Heart Disease
- Alzheimer’s Disease
- And so much more
If your gums are bleeding, red, and receding, you could be experiencing early signs of periodontal disease. At Nashville Dentistry Co., we offer periodontal therapy (scaling & root planing) to improve the health of your gums. It consists of meeting with our friendly hygienists every 3-4 months where they will do a deep cleaning. They will gently clean your teeth and roots to get rid of any plaque and harmful bacteria infecting your gums.
In the past, root canals were painful, but with dental advances and sedation dentistry, this is no longer the case. You can restore your tooth with very little discomfort if any at all.
Night guards: These mouthguards are to be worn at night and can help with many dental treatments such as teeth straightening, temporomandibular joint disorders, and sleep issues.
Sports guards: The American Dental Association recommends wearing mouthguards when playing sports. Our sports guards protect your teeth from trauma associated with a number of sports.
