Honestly for cleanings, I prefer coming to [Dr Sims’] office, because they go on a deeper level…It’s not painful whatsoever. It just keeps more bacteria from even growing in between your visits.Mallory
Changing Marlloy’s Life with a Smile
One aspect of good oral hygiene means maintaining your smile by visiting your periodontist for routine periodontal maintenance. During your periodontal maintenance visit, Dr. Sims and your hygienist will:
- Check for any problems that you may not see or feel
- Look for cavities or any other signs of tooth decay
- Examine your gums for gingivitis and signs of periodontal disease
- Provide a thorough periodontal cleaning and polish
Alternately visiting Dr. Sims and your dentist every three months gives you the chance to talk with your doctor and receive answers for any questions you may have about your oral health. Checkups are also a great way for you to find out about new treatments that may benefit your smile.
