The accumulation of plaque and calculus around the teeth and under the gums can cause a cascade of dental problems like tooth decay, gingivitis, bone loss, halitosis (bad breath), and eventually, tooth loss. Routine cleanings in Brentwood rids the mouth of harmful bacteria and ensures that you can enjoy a lifetime of exceptional oral health.

At Dentalogics in Brentwood, we begin with a comprehensive examination of teeth and gums in order to create a treatment plan that is customized for your unique oral needs. Your examination will include low radiation digital x-rays to detect decay between the teeth, as well as an oral cancer screening. We then use both hand instruments and an ultrasonic scaler to gently break up plaque and tartar that build up below the gum line. Our team will also tell you what you need to know about home care between visits so that future cleanings will be effortless and easy.
Your lifestyle appears on your teeth; years of drinking coffee, tea, soda, or red wine, as well as smoking, can darken your teeth. Let us put the sparkle back into your smile! Dentalogics in Brentwood is both easy and non-invasive, and can remove years of stain and color from your teeth in a single, one-hour treatment.
After an examination and cleaning have already been completed at Dentalogics we will prepare you for a whitening procedure by having you brush with Sensodyne toothpaste for one week prior to the whitening. This toothpaste will help to relieve any sensitivity, which may be a short-term result of the professional whitening. A hydrogen peroxide solution gel will be carefully and evenly applied to your teeth, taking careful precautions to avoid the gums. The solution will be left on the teeth for 15 minute intervals and then washed away. Usually after three intervals of 15 minutes your teeth will have lifted three-four levels of on the shade guide! A fourth interval could be done if necessary.
A relief gel will be applied to your teeth and Dr. Gabi will review with you what food and beverages to stay away from for the next few days….and yes, coffee is on that list (don’t worry it’s temporary)!
Brief sensitivity will occur to even the most non-sensitive people, but will not last long. Brushing with toothpastes like Sensodyne will help, as well as staying away from foods at both extremes in temperatures for the next day or two.
