Regular Dental Cleanings Are Important
We would encourage everyone to visit our office twice a year for routine cleanings. Daily brushing and flossing should always be part of your oral care. However, we are all human so it helps to have someone check our mouths a couple times a year.
At Parkway Dental, you can count on a professional cleaning from one of our friendly and caring staff members. You also can expect a thorough examination to check for any potential problems. We know finding tooth decay early and treating it can prevent much more serious problems.
During a routine dental visit, we may take x-rays to check a few things. First, the x-rays can help us find cavities that we may not be able to see with our eyes alone. Second, x-rays give us a way to monitor any changes to the alignment of your teeth.
During your cleaning, a dentist or hygienist will remove plaque and tartar from your mouth. These substances can increase your risk of developing cavities and gum disease. By removing the plaque and tartar, we are helping you keep your teeth healthy.
This also makes you less likely to lose teeth. We think you would agree that keeping all your teeth is better for the appearance of your smile.

Teeth Whitening To Give Your Smile A Boost
Around the age of 13, most people have their adult teeth. When your teeth first erupted they were probably pretty white.
After all, you hadn’t spent years or decades drinking a cup of coffee at that point. You hadn’t eaten countless pizzas and pasta. And you hadn’t had more soft drinks, sports drinks, and wine than you could count.
All of those things — and many more — may have contributed to the current color of your teeth.
To remove stains that have taken decades to develop, professional teeth whitening is your fastest solution. Professional whitening products can be up to 11 times more powerful than commercial whitening products.
How do we know this? First, we have seen firsthand what our KöR and Zoom products can do.
Second, the American Dental Association Council on Scientific Affairs compared commercial and professional whitening products. They learned that professional products had significantly higher concentrations of the “bleaching” agents that remove the stains.
A great time for a whitening treatment is after your teeth have been cleaned. At that time, many of the surface stains have been removed. That allows the whitening agents to get even deeper to remove more stains from your teeth.
Contact our dentist office today if you live in or near Snellville, GA, to find out what our professional teeth whitening could do for you.
A Word Of Caution About Teeth Whitening
The ADA council recommends talking to your dentist before starting any teeth whitening treatment. While they can be extremely effective at remove stains from teeth, whitening is not recommended for every patient.
For people with multiple fillings or crowns, whitening may not be the best option. The Parkway Dental team can help you determine if teeth whitening or another kind of cosmetic dentistry may be better for you.
