Why Is Preventive Care So Important?

Make the easy decision to schedule a teeth cleaning and exam every six months at Rocky Mountain Dental Co. By visiting Dr. Dave regularly, you can keep your smile healthy and bright, and lower your chances of being affected by common oral health problems.

What Can I Expect From A Dental Cleaning & X-Rays?

First, one of our hygienists will perform an initial oral exam to confirm that you don’t have any oral health issues that may interfere with your teeth cleaning. Then, they will begin by scraping plaque and tartar away from your teeth with specialized dental tools. After this, your teeth will be buffed and polished with a high-powered brush, and your hygienist will floss between your teeth to remove any remaining debris.

After your cleaning, x-rays will be taken of your jaw and your teeth to check for hidden oral health issues. Dr. Dave will perform a comprehensive oral exam and review these x-rays to ensure that your mouth is healthy. If we notice any major issues, we’ll inform you and discuss the next steps for treatment.

What Are Fluoride Treatments?

Fluoride treatments are used to strengthen weakened teeth and reverse the initial stage of tooth decay. A fluoride gel is painted onto your teeth and left in place for a few minutes. Then, it’s rinsed away. The fluoride helps remineralize your teeth, attracting minerals like calcium and phosphates, and preventing tooth decay.

What Is Periodontal Care (Deep Cleaning)? 

A deep cleaning, also known as scaling and root planing, is a treatment for periodontal (gum) disease. It involves scraping away plaque from between your gums and teeth, and smoothing the roots to remove pockets that collect bacteria. Along with antibiotics, this periodontal treatment can be used to resolve most minor-to-moderate cases of gum disease.

What Is An Oral Cancer Screening?

As part of every appointment at Rocky Mountain Dental Co., Dr. Dave utilizes intraoral cameras to look for lesions, discolored patches of tissue, and other potential signs of oral cancer. This gives you peace of mind, and ensures you can get the care you need in the rare event that we notice a potential issue.
