Dental Cleanings & Exams
Dental cleanings and exams are one of the most important aspects of your ongoing dental care. These preventive treatments allow us to monitor your oral health and quickly provide any treatment that you need to repair damage to your smile and maintain a healthy mouth. We recommend that you receive a dental cleaning and exam from our caring dentist every 6 months. To make your appointment with Dr. Yvonne Schulke and learn more about dental cleanings and exams in Stevens Point, Wisconsin, please call Parkdale Dental Center today at 715-341-2220.
Dental cleanings and exams are two of the most basic yet important preventive treatments we provide at our office. Each time you visit our dental practice for a checkup, we will provide a professional teeth cleaning and dental exam to help your smile stay healthy. During your teeth cleaning and exam, our dental team will:
- Clean your teeth by removing any plaque or tartar (also called dental calculus), which can lead to tooth decay and periodontal disease
- Floss and polish your teeth for a healthy, bright smile
- Examine your smile for signs of any damaging dental conditions or diseases
We utilize dental X-rays to further evaluate your smile and make certain that you receive the dental care you need. Regular dental cleanings and exams are essential in maintaining good oral health, preventing cavities and gum disease, and making sure that any damaging conditions are treated as early as possible.
Our dentist recommends that you visit us every six months for a routine dental cleaning and exam. We may suggest more frequent visits if needed, and we also encourage you to contact us if you suffer from a dental emergency, pain, or injury. To schedule your next appointment, we invite you to contact us today. We look forward to caring for your smile!
If your teeth are at greater risk for developing cavities, our dentist can provide you with a fluoride treatment to remineralize and strengthen your tooth enamel. We invite you to call Parkdale Dental Center today at 715-341-2220 to schedule your appointment with Dr. Yvonne Schulke and learn more.
Fluoride is a mineral that is naturally found in water and many foods. While you receive a certain amount of fluoride from your diet and from using toothpaste with fluoride, we may recommend fluoride treatment to further strengthen your teeth and prevent cavities.
Fluoride helps to strengthen your teeth and protect them from tooth decay. As you eat and drink throughout the day, bacteria, sugars, and acids constantly attack and demineralize the enamel layer of your teeth. Fluoride works to remineralize the tooth enamel, preventing tooth decay and cavities. In addition, fluoride can strengthen the teeth as they develop to make sure they are strong and healthy, making fluoride very important for children as their teeth grow in.
Our dentist often recommends professional fluoride treatment during your regular dental checkup, and we may suggest further treatment if your teeth are prone to decay or if you are not receiving a sufficient amount of fluoride from other sources. Professional fluoride is available in the form of a gel, varnish, or foam. Fluoride treatment is just one of the ways our dentist helps you keep your smile healthy for a lifetime. For more information about preventive dentistry and the benefits of fluoride, we welcome you to contact us today. We look forward to caring for your smile!
Preventing dental problems is always easier than repairing the damage to your smile. Our dentist and team at Parkdale Dental Center are strong advocates of preventive care, and offer a variety of treatments to help keep your mouth and smile healthy and free from decay and disease. We also work with you to help you develop an effective home-care routine. Call us today at 715-341-2220 to learn more about the benefits of preventive care in and set up your appointment with Dr. Yvonne Schulke.
The goal of preventive care is to protect your smile from damage caused by tooth decay, periodontal disease (gum disease), and other damaging dental conditions. Preventive dentistry works to prevent these diseases before they cause damage that requires repair. We offer a number of preventive dental treatments to help you keep your smile in the best possible health. These services include dental sealants and dental cleanings; visiting our office regularly ensures that we detect and treat any early signs of damage before they become more extensive and painful.
There are several steps you can take to prevent cavities and tooth decay. Our dentist recommends that you follow these guidelines to help minimize your chances for developing cavities:
- Brush and floss your teeth every day. You should brush at least twice a day and floss at least once a day. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and a fluoridated toothpaste.
- Maintain a balanced, healthy diet with a limited amount of very sugary or acidic foods.
- Visit our office at least twice a year for a routine tooth cleaning and dental exam.
- Ask your dentist about dental sealants and fluoride treatment to see if they are right for your smile.
To learn more about preventive care, we invite you to call 715-341-2220 or visit us today!
When your tooth is so badly damaged that restorative procedures cannot save it, Dr. Yvonne Schulke can perform a tooth extraction to remove it from your mouth before it can cause further harm to your oral health or your remaining teeth. Our dentist will then work with you to determine which type of replacement will be most suitable for your needs. Please contact our office at 715-341-2220 to learn more about tooth extractions in Stevens Point, Wisconsin, and to make your appointment at Parkdale Dental Center.
Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth. While we strive to avoid the need to remove a tooth whenever possible, certain conditions may make tooth extraction the most effective option for returning your smile to good health and function. We are happy to provide you with one of our excellent tooth replacement treatments, if needed, to restore your smile to optimal health, beauty, and function.
Several conditions may necessitate tooth extraction. Among these are:
- Severe infection that has destroyed a significant portion of the tooth and supporting bone structure
- Serious decay that has damaged a tooth beyond repair, making a successful restoration impossible
- Crowding caused by too many teeth to properly fit in the mouth
Our dentist uses great care and skill when performing a tooth extraction to ensure that your dental experience is as comfortable and painless as possible. We will also provide you with detailed post-treatment care instructions so you can properly take care of your smile as it heals. For more information and to schedule your personalized consultation at our friendly dental office, we invite you to call or visit us today. We are committed to improving your smile!
