Sealants are a proven way to help prevent cavities. Although sealants do not take the place of proper oral hygiene, they do prevent bacteria from getting into the deeper crevices in a tooth's biting surface and therefore keeping the tooth cavity-free.
Poor gum health, left unchecked can lead to health concerns or complicate existing ones. If you are experiencing gum disease a healthy relationship between you, your hygienist, and Dr. Palano is imperative to manage and or control this condition.
Tooth scaling removes plaque and tartar which are loaded with bacteria. After scaling the tooth roots may need to be planed to smooth the root surface so the soft tissue will re-attach itself to a smooth tooth surface.
