General Dentistry in Lacey, Tacoma, and Tumwater
At Tranquility Dental Wellness Center, we are proud to offer all the bells and whistles when it comes to you and your family’s dental care.
Ideally, however, you will never need the bells and whistles! An excellent preventive care plan can help you avoid all kinds of common dental problems, from cavities to infections to emergencies. This is why we make outstanding preventive care the foundation of all we do.
No matter where your dental health currently is, we can help you either maintain your healthy smile or help you get back on track so you can enjoy the excellent dental health and comfort that you deserve.
We’ve heard from people who avoid going to the dentist because they are afraid that they will be judged or shamed for their current level of dental health. We want you to rest assured that this is not what we are about. Whether you are seen at our Lacey, Tumwater, or Tacoma dental office, you’ll always be treated respectfully and with kindness. You will also have access to all of our special amenities because we believe that everyone deserves some pampering in their life!
When you are here in our chair, you are our number one priority. We will listen carefully to your concerns and your goals, answer all your questions, and provide you with information about your options so you can make educated decisions about your care.
The entire family is welcome at our practice! From 1 to 101, you’ll receive the same outstanding, comfortable, relaxing care, perfectly customized to meet your unique needs.
Routine Cleanings and Examinations
People often wonder why regular dental cleanings are necessary, especially if they are particularly diligent about their home care routine. While proper home care will help prevent a lot of problems, it’s virtually impossible to completely remove every last trace of plaque from your teeth. Over time, plaque will build up in these hard-to-reach areas, and without attention, it will harden into tartar, which is impossible to remove with your toothbrush.
Our hygienists will carefully, comfortably, and thoroughly remove all traces of plaque and tartar from your teeth, giving you a fresh start every six months. Plaque and tartar contribute to both cavities and gum disease by providing a sort of “safe harbor” for bacteria. The bacteria produce acids that eat away at your enamel and irritate your gums, so you can see how important it is to clear these deposits away.
Even with excellent preventive care, it’s still possible to develop gum disease or a cavity or two.
Did you know that the Centers for Disease Control have found that just about everybody will have at least one cavity at some point in their lives? Cavities (also known as dental caries) are considered the most common chronic disease in American children. Additionally, about half of all adults in the United States have some level of gum disease.
Regular examinations help us identify any developing problems as early as possible so we can put a stop to them quickly, before they can do any lasting damage. The earlier we catch problems, the simpler the treatment – and simple treatment is always a good thing!
