24 hours without proper cleaning is all it can take for plaque to turn into tartar, which is much harder to remove. Brushing and flossing at home everyday are the best ways to control plaque and tartar, but there are some hard to reach areas that require special attention.

After your periodontal treatment is done, your dentist and dental hygienist will suggest more frequent cleanings with them, this can be up to 4 cleanings per year. These cleanings will give us the chance to monitor periodontal disease by measuring the space between gums and teeth to make sure they’re healthy and notice any other issues that may arise. More frequent visits also allow your dental hygienist to remove the plaque and tartar that are difficult to remove at home.

Along with the periodontal evaluation and cleaning, follow-up appointments for periodontal disease include:

  • Evaluating of tooth decaying: using special instruments, we inspect all tooth surfaces for decay.
  • Evaluating restorations: any current fillings, crowns, etc. will be checked to ensure everything is in good shape.
  • Digital Radiography: digital X-rays allow us to see things invisible to the naked eye, they are an essential tool in detecting decay, bone loss, and tooth and root positions.
  • Identifying possible oral cancer: your whole mouth, face, lips, and throat will be checked for the smallest signs of possible oral cancer.
  • Polishing teeth: Remove stains and plaque that is not otherwise removed during tooth brushing and scaling.

I have been a patient of Dr. Song’s for many years; the service he and his staff provides is beyond comparison. They always accommodate my busy schedule, and are centrally located. I highly recommend Metro Dental to all; it’s professional, respectful, and welcoming.

I love this place and will recommend it to all my family and friends. The staff was always courteous and professional. The location is very close to my work, I was in and out within 50 min
(X-rays, cleaning, new patient stuff...) The staff and the dentist are very experienced, patient and friendly.
I will definitely come back here again!
