Checkups and Cleanings
According to the American Dental Association, people should undergo routine checkups and cleanings once every six months. These services allow your Columbia TN general dentist to watch for the signs of serious dental issues and recommend immediate treatment. During a cleaning, our dental hygienists will remove the layers of plaque buildup from your teeth. In addition to brightening your smile, removing plaque also helps combat gum disease. Plaque buildup causes the gum inflammation that often leads to periodontal disease. A simple checkup and cleaning helps your smile remain free of gum disease and tooth decay.
Using digital x-rays, Dr. Foster can perform a more precise and thorough diagnosis of your dental health. Digital x-rays use over 80% less radiation than traditional x-rays. Digital x-rays also allow Dr. Foster to view images immediately.
Dental lasers are a breakthrough technology that allows Dr. Foster to treat serious issues such as gum disease. Lasers provide unrivaled accuracy and precision. Patients often prefer lasers for periodontal treatments and other procedures because they are quiet. Following a procedure, patients experience less bleeding and a reduced risk of infection due to the laser’s sterilizing prosperities. Furthermore, many procedures involving dental lasers require little to no anesthesia.
