Our team at Oakwood Dental is deeply concerned for the health and well-being of our patients, our staff and their families. On March 20th, Governor Polis signed and executive order to extend the temporary suspension for elective and non-essential procedures. This includes all voluntary or elective surgeries or procedures, whether medical, dental or veterinary. The new executive order has extended our temporary closure through April 14th.

We will be available to our patients in need of emergency dental care as needed throughout this temporary closure.

How often do I need my teeth cleaned?

man in dental chair | castle rock co dentistWith good oral hygiene habits and a normally healthy mouth, Dr. Jones typically suggests a professional cleaning, or a prophylaxis, by one of our exceptional hygienists at least twice a year. The goal of regular dental cleanings is to remove plaque, tarter, and any stains that may have accumulated on the teeth, as wells as to prevent and treat gum disease. Even with the best at-home oral hygiene habits, tarter and plaque can still develop.

Deeper Dental Cleaning

Sometimes it is necessary to do a “deeper” cleaning, known as scaling and root planing. A regular prohylaxis focuses on the surface and in between the teeth, and stays above the gum line. A scaling and root planning cleaning is needed in order to remove any bacteria and calculus that may have collected under the gum line and on the surface of the roots of your teeth. This deeper cleaning is the best way to treat gum disease and helps prevent bone loss, which can loosen the teeth and causing them to become mobile.
