Regular dental checkups and cleanings provide the foundation for a healthy beautiful smile that can last a lifetime. We complete a thorough exam including an oral cancer screening with every preventative visit. It is important to review the teeth, gums and whole mouth along with regular intervals of dental radiographs to continually assess any changes to your dental health. Our goal is to help you protect and preserve your natural teeth before problems start.
When dental plaque is left on teeth it can harden and become what many people call tarter. This tarter and plaque causes inflammation of the gums which can lead to gingivitis and eventually periodontitis. Routine dental cleanings and proper homecare can prevent gingivitis. If not addressed, gingivitis can progress to periodontitis and result in deeper pockets due to bone loss. This bone loss can cause the teeth to become loose and eventually fall out.
At Hamburg Family Dental, we complete a thorough periodontal evaluation to determine the health of your gums. When periodontal disease is present a common treatment is called a deep cleaning or scaling and root planing. It is important to clean deep into the pockets to disrupt the bacteria present and remove any tarter to allow the gums to heal. While bone loss can not be reverse, with proper home care and more frequent maintenance visits, we can prevent the progression of periodontal disease

Dr. Rhodes and Dr. Stuart practice the Concept of Complete Dentistry, which emphasizes a comprehensive, individualized approach to a patient’s dental care, beginning with prevention and early intervention. Contrary to what you might think, this doesn’t mean drill and fill every tooth.
Rather, the Complete Dentistry that the doctors at Hamburg Family Dental practice requires an understanding of every structural part of your chewing system, including your jaw joints, facial and temporal muscles, and teeth. In the long run, this could save you from years of pain, suffering and extensive costs for multiple and repeated dental work.
Analyzing the 10 structural and functional factors in the chewing system is the basis for every new patient examination so that we can properly diagnosis and treat not only obvious problems, but also those that haven’t even shown signs yet!
Did you know that most dental problems are not painful at first, but can be identified by a trained dentist before any symptoms or damage occur?
As a graduate of The Dawson Academy, Dr. Rhodes and Dr. Stuart are one of only 10% of dentists in the country who practices the Concept of Complete Dentistry. They can identify the signs of problems before any symptoms or damage occurs, which means you can receive treatments in a more conservative and less costly manner.
