At Monterey Dental Centre, we are committed to focusing on your dental hygiene and overall oral health. This means decreasing inflammation through periodontal dentistry. When you have active periodontal disease, the typical routines of home maintenance – including daily dental hygiene and teeth brushing – may not be effective enough, as those methods generally focus on areas of the tooth that are above the gum-line.
But with regular scaling and root planing procedures, we can remove the build-up of plaque, tartar (calculus) and bacterial toxins (biofilms) from tooth surfaces below the gum line, which are the areas that general home care practices are unable to reach.
At Monterey Dental Centre, we make sure that you are on a twice-per-year frequency of maintenance and/or preventative care schedule, or possibly more, depending on your individual health needs.
In order to find appointment times that fit with busy and active lifestyles, most of our clients pre-schedule their next visit with us. We will remind you with either a phone call or by e-mail when it is time for your next preventative care visit.
