Bi-annual teeth cleanings and oral exams are essential for your overall oral health. In this process, your teeth will be cleaned and polished by a hygienist, and Dr. Mustafa will examine your mouth to look for common oral health issues like gum disease and cavities.
Fluoride treatments may also be used. This consists of a thin layer of fluoride varnish that helps strengthen your teeth and fight back against cavities. The treatment is fast and non-invasive, and while it’s usually used in kids, any patient can get fluoride treatment if they are cavity-prone.
Dental sealants are also commonly recommended. In this procedure, a layer of durable, transparent resin is applied to the rear teeth, covering them up and protecting them from cavities for up to 10 years. Again, this is often recommended for kids, but sealants can be used in patients of all ages.
Our Aubrey office also offers comprehensive periodontal care and maintenance for patients with gum disease, including scaling and root planing. Dr. Mustafa can help you control, manage, and even reverse gum disease, depending on the extent of your condition.
