Dental Care And Advice You Can Count On
At the end of the day, Dr. Borsky and his team are focused on providing you exceptional dental care. That starts with providing you with services that stop dental conditions before they have a chance to develop through preventive dentistry
At Borsky Dental Group, we want our patients to have a lifetime of happy and healthy smiles. Dr. Jeremy J. Borsky and his team believe that the key to excellent oral health is good hygiene habits. A dental cleaning is a professional cleaning you receive from a dentist or dental hygienist. Most dental cleanings take only between 25 and 30 minutes. Cleanings should be performed every six months to prevent excessive plaque buildup. Plaque left untreated can lead to unhealthy gums and tooth decay. Routine dental cleaning should include scaling, root planing, and polishing.
Scaling: This is the process of removing plaque and tartar from all tooth surfaces in a variety of methods, depending on the amount of plaque and tartar.
Dental hygienists traditionally perform scaling by hand. However, new and advanced technology has led to more modern methods such as electric scalers. This sophisticated tool allows dental cleanings to be performed more efficiently and in less time. To achieve the best results, both electric and manual scaling methods are combined for dental cleanings.
Gum disease is treated by carefully removing the bacteria and substances that form in the pockets around the teeth. The removal of this material occurs on a microscopic level and requires great skill. Our dental team has had advanced training to effectively remove all of the bacteria.
Much of your preventive dental care starts with you. Developing healthy dental habits early in life can help reduce cavities, gum disease, and gingivitis.
| Fluoride Treatments
Topical fluoride strengthens the teeth once they have erupted by seeping into the outer surface of the tooth enamel, making the teeth more resistant to decay. While we generally recommend this for younger patients, adults can always benefit from fluoride as well. With regular applications, generally once a year, your tooth enamel will be stronger and better able to fight back against harmful bacteria.
| Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer is considered to be the sixth most common form of cancer in the world, which is why more and more dentists have taken the initiative to include oral cancer screenings in their routine checkups. Dr. Borsky takes this issue very seriously, which is why you can expect him to be very thorough during your routine exam. If he believes that the signs or symptoms of oral cancer are present, we’ll refer you to a medical doctor who can establish a proper diagnosis and get you on the right path towards treatment.
A sealant is a thin, plastic coating applied to the chewing surface of molars, premolars, and any deep grooves (called pits and fissures) of teeth. More than 75% of dental decay begins in these deep grooves. Teeth with these conditions are hard to clean and are very susceptible to decay. A sealant protects the tooth by sealing deep grooves, creating a smooth, easy-to-clean surface.
