Dr. William Stewart, DDS, and the patient-centered and detail oriented dental team at William J. Stewart Jr. DDS Advanced Family & Cosmetic Dentistry has been cleaning, restoring and improving smiles in San Antonio, Texas since 1981. We do find that patients are interested in more than clean teeth and healthy gums, though these are certainly critical priorities.
Our goal is to help our San Antonio dental patients prevent gum disease before any damage occurs. Cleanings include root planing and periodontal scaling. Scaling removes the plaque and calculus above and, especially, below the gumline where your toothbrush cannot reach. Planing smoothes root surfaces so it is more difficult for plaque and tartar to accumulate and grow. It also creates a healthy surface for the gums to reattach to the root if necessary.
Though some San Antonio people never experience problems with these extra molars, wisdom teeth can often create serious cosmetic and general dentistry complications.
Our practice, William J. Stewart Jr. DDS Advanced Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, specializes in cosmetic and family dentistry in the San Antonio area.
Today’s article is for San Antonio area people who are overdue for a general dentistry cleaning and exam.
