A preventive (recare) program is a joint cooperative effort between you and our experienced dental team to preserve your natural teeth, gums, and bones of the oral area by preventing the onset, progress, and recurrence of dental diseases and conditions. We invite you to call Parkway Dental today at 919-380-9622 to learn more about dental cleanings and preventive care in Cary, North Carolina, and schedule your appointment with Dr. Stephen Coker.
Preventing dental disease starts at home with good oral hygiene and a balanced diet. It is continued in our dental office by the efforts of Dr. Coker, and the dental hygienists as they promote, restore, and maintain your oral health.
Regular dental exams, cleanings, and x-rays are all part of an effective prevention program. Other great preventive treatments include sealants and fluoride.
Prevention helps avoid serious and costly dental problems and is the key to having a healthy, confident, and beautiful smile.
Scaling & Root Planing
We remove the plaque through a deep-cleaning method called scaling and root planing. Scaling means scraping off the tartar from above and below the gum line. Root planing gets rid of rough spots on the tooth root where the germs gather, and helps remove the bacteria that contribute to the periodontal disease, tooth decay, and other harmful conditions. We may also recommend a mouth rinse and enzyme suppressant treatment to accompany this treatment.
