Teeth Cleaning & Periodontal Therapy
Maintaining the health of your teeth is our first priority. We are here to educate, maintain, and then if necessary repair your teeth.
At Advanced Aesthetic, Restorative & Family Dentistry our dental hygienists are highly trained to perform routine teeth cleanings known as prophylaxis, halting the development of periodontal disease. Additionally, they can perform more advanced periodontal therapy including debridement, the removal of dead tissue, and deep pocket scaling and root planing to remove bacteria from below the gum line and smooth roots to help prevent future issues.

Dr. Bell, along with our entire dental practice aims to ensure our patients are comfortable at all times during treatment. We know that together, we can make this a comfortable experience for every member of your family, and we want that because maintaining the health of your teeth matters.

For patients who are anxious about treatment, we offer local or topical anesthetic for their comfort, as well as sedation with nitrous oxide.
