Fulton MO Dental Clinic

Dental plaque in Fulton MO

If you want to make sure that your teeth and gums stay healthy, you will need to have a great at-home dental cleaning regimen, and come into our dental practice, St. George Family Dental, for dental exams and cleanings. At our Fulton MO dental clinic, you can receive excellent preventive dentistry care which will include keeping dental plaque off your teeth.

When you come to our Fulton MO dental clinic for your biannual dental exam, our dentists will among other things, assess your gum health. If it is found that you have gingivitis, a common precursor to gum disease, our dentist will most likely recommend that you have several regular dental cleanings over the coming months so that all dental plaque and tartar can be effectively removed from your teeth. During a dental exam, dental plaque is removed from your teeth, from between your teeth, and from just below the gum line. Dental plaque is an extremely sticky colorless film that sticks to teeth and causes dental cavities; materials that are found in the dental plaque will mix with the saliva and carbs in your mouth, and form dental acids which will eat through your tooth enamel. Regular dental cleanings will be very effective in removing dental plaque from your teeth so that you do not get dental cavities. Dental plaque can also cause gingivitis, a common precursor to gum disease, by irritating the gums along the gum line. When dental plaque stays on teeth for a period of time, it will turn into tartar. Tartar is a hard, mineralized substance that tightly adheres to teeth and can only be removed with dental cleanings. It encourages the development of deep pockets to form between the teeth and gums, and causes gum disease. If our dentist sees that you have deep pockets, he will probably recommend that you have a periodontal scaling and root planing treatment to clean out the deep pockets so that they can reduce in size.

Kingdom City teeth bleaching

If you are interested in having your teeth whitened, you should come to St. George Family Dental. At our dental practice, our dentist, Dr. Matthew P. St. George, will be able to provide you with Kingdom City teeth bleaching so that you can have a whiter and brighter smile.

When patients come to our dental practice, we are very pleased to be able to provide them with two different types of Kingdom City teeth bleaching; this means that if they want to have whiter and brighter teeth you have a great choice of two systems at our office. First of all, we offer our in-office state-of-the-art teeth bleaching system which will make your teeth whiter while you relax and our dentist chair’s. This generally will take only one office visit. Our patients are also able to purchase our take-home teeth whitening system so that they can achieve a brighter smile in the comfort of their own home. Our dentist will be happy to talk to you about the benefits of each type of teeth whitening system, and help you to determine which will be best for you. Our dentist will also want to meet with you to make sure that you do not have any tooth-colored fillings on front teeth, or porcelain restorations, which may appear different in color after your teeth whitening is performed. This occurs because teeth bleaching systems only work on natural tooth enamel; they will have no effect on man-made dental materials such as porcelain. Our dentist will be able to come up with a treatment plan which will allow these dental items in your mouth to be replaced after the tooth whitening is completed so that you will once again have a uniformly-colored smile.

For an appointment to meet with our dentist for Kingdom City teeth bleaching, simply contact our office today for an appointment.
