Dental Hygiene/Periodontal Health

While at our office, we make sure that you receive the highest level of service and ensure that our dental work is of the highest quality. To ensure that you maintain great oral health, this level of quality needs to extend into your personal oral hygiene routine. We can help you establish a dental hygiene routine that will keep your teeth healthy and white. If you have any questions about your current hygiene plan please ask us.

Your teeth are not the only important part of your mouth. Your gums are essential to oral hygiene as well. We can provide periodontal cleanings and treatment, or refer you to one of our recommended specialists. Please let us know if you have any questions.

Oral cancer screenings

Oral cancer screenings are a very important part of the dental visit for every dental patient. Early detection is essential in treatment success when it comes to oral cancer.

Certain lifestyle choices can have a great impact on the health of tissues and your overall health in the mouth. If you are a smoker, chew tobacco or drink heavily, make sure to get regular screenings when you visit the dentist.

Root Planing

When plaque and tartar accumulate below the gumline, overtime this can lead to irreversible bone loss. In this scenario, we encourage a deeper cleaning called scaling and root planing. A seperate appointment is scheduled to focus on the area with the accumulation. Your hygienist will use a local anesthetic for your comfort and clean and smooth this area with special instruments to ensure that the area is completely spotless.
