Advanced Periodontal Therapy & Deep Cleanings
Dr. Reyes-Viruet believes the secret to successfully fighting gum disease is a blend of proper oral hygiene and very thorough, yet gentle cleaning. At your deep cleaning appointment, our dental hygienist will perform scaling and root planing to remove plaque and tartar from the surface of the teeth and the roots. This deep-cleaning procedure may be performed with an ultrasonic instrument or manual scaling tools and may require one or more visits to ensure a thorough job is done.
Ideally, after this deep cleaning appointment, the bacteria in the pockets of the teeth will be removed and should be followed up by daily oral hygiene practices. Our friendly hygienists will teach you how to properly floss and brush to prevent any further development of gum disease, and we will plan to see you for periodontal maintenance on a 3- or 6-month rotational basis to help you keep periodontal disease at bay.
Oral Cancer Screenings
At Viruet Periodontics, we utilize state-of-the-art technology to detect oral cancer in its earliest stages. Part of each preventive care appointment will include a safe, ultra-thorough oral cancer screening.
Nightguards For TMJ Pain
Do you grind your teeth while you sleep? This habit, also known as bruxism, can lead to headaches, TMJ, and uneven tooth wear. Dr. Reyes-Virout offers custom-made night guards to help patients correct the problem and preserve their healthy teeth. A simple night guard can help those suffering from bite-related headaches, using a blend of special orthotics and advanced treatments to correct bite function problems.
Mouthguards For Athletics
If you play any type of sports, smile protection is key! At Viruet Periodontics, we create custom-crafted athletic mouthguards to help patients safeguard their smiles against injuries and concussions. Our oral appliances are simple, yet effective, providing top-notch protection for your teeth.
Desensitizing Treatments For Sensitive Teeth
If you experience tooth sensitivity to hot and cold, and you avoid certain foods or drinks because of this, our team has a solution for you! After a thorough consultation to determine the cause of the sensitivity, Dr. Reyes-Viruet will apply a special paste designed to take away the sensitivity for months. She'll even make recommendations on how to keep your teeth from becoming sensitive in between regular appointments.
