Whether your visit with us is for your regular continuous care appointment or for other services, you can take comfort that the Advanced DDS team is here to provide you and your family our dedication to a high quality dental service visit – one with key patient support and assurance of full comfort.
Speaking of comfort – at Advanced DDS, we offer our patients spa treatments! Our chairs are memory foam with massage features. We provide a special menu which includes complimentary hand treatments, hot towels, headphones, blankets and more. With our smart TVs, our patients can use the internet or watch Netflix while getting their cleaning.
Since your comfort is our number one priority, our procedures are adjusted to your needs, including for those patients who have anxieties about going to the dentist. We are anesthesia and nitrous oxide certified and our hygienists have taken special courses for their use. Most dentists are not certified in this area and therefore cannot offer these options. Our hygienists take continuing education courses to keep up to date on the newest dental technology and are also CPR certified.
It’s nice to know that you won’t feel rushed during your appointment. Since our cleanings are individualized, our team provides you a full hour’s appointment vs. the more typical 15-20 minutes for cleanings provided from other dental offices. We treat gingivitis and periodontal (gum) disease. You may also receive individualized home care instructions depending on your dental condition. For example, we may recommend and prescribe a special mouth rinse or antibiotic.
For gum issues, we offer laser dentistry – a new technology not often available in other offices. The laser sanitizes your mouth, reduces bacteria, and promotes gum healing. During your continuous care appointment, our Hygienist will be checking your gum for any signs of gingivitis or gum disease. And while other dentists do not do full mouth probing, it is an integral part of your dental visit along with your yearly oral cancer screening.
Gum Disease Prevention & Periodontal Treatments
Your regular continuous care visits are there to ensure you have no immediate issues to address and that your teeth are properly cleaned and checked. Should you learn that you have gum disease, we will recommend a more frequent scheduling for any necessary periodontal treatments. These more frequent scheduling are critical to maintaining both your tooth and gum health over your lifetime.
Keep in mind there is a difference between a continuous care visit and a periodontal treatment.
A periodontal treatment includes both promoting the health of your gums and the supporting bone. They are important for health reasons and will ensure you keep your teeth healthy as long as possible. You will likely receive a recommendation to have routine visits 3-4 times a year to prevent advanced periodontal disease.
After all, you want to keep your teeth strong for a lifetime. They serve you well!
