Don’t treat … protect! We support happy, healthy mouths with preventive, professional teeth cleanings
At Z dentistry, we love getting to know our patients as the one-of-a-kind individuals that they are! They get to know us and trust us. In fact, Dr. Zatarain is simply “George” to patients who quickly become like extended family. We take great care to assure everyone feels welcome, down to offering visitors something to drink or eat. And we are not afraid to laugh alongside our patients and to celebrate their joys or victories – smile-related or otherwise.
These relationships are built on consistent visits to our Reno office. We serve greater western Nevada and northeastern California with professional teeth cleanings and other proactive services to support sustained, healthy, and happy smiles.
The value of professionally-cleaned teeth!
We applaud our patients for taking great care of their mouths when they cannot be at our office. However, even thorough brushers and flossers must maintain professional cleanings.
Among healthy patients without risk factors for decay, gum disease, or oral cancers, these cleanings are generally scheduled two times per year – or once every six months.
Why is this service so important for people who “do the right things” at home and care for their teeth so well? Sticky bacterial plaque is constantly forming on the teeth. Plaque erodes the teeth, gums, and supporting bone and tissues. Even patients who never fail to brush and floss each day diligently cannot remove all of the plaque that builds up on the teeth. Furthermore, plaque build-up (known as “tartar” or “calculus”) is incredibly stubborn. It cannot be removed with standard toothbrushes.
This is where our skilled dental hygienists come in. We are highly trained in using special techniques and skills to thoroughly and painlessly remove bacteria, plaque, lingering food particles, and tartar from the teeth and gum line. Our patients also love how fresh their mouth feels following a professional cleaning or prophylaxis. A “prophy” is also one of the best ways to keep your teeth looking great and stain-free. We lift surface stains as we lift plaque and other causes of tooth decay and gum disease.
Schedule your visit at Z dentistry today! With routine preventive care, we can help you, and your loved ones avoid the discomfort, cost, time, stress, and hassle associated with treating conditions such as tooth decay and periodontal disease.
