While having a thorough personal oral hygiene regimen is a good practice, our Dental Hygiene services offer you additional cleaning benefits, as well as preventative measures. To keep your mouth at its cleanest and healthiest contact us.
The goal of a general cleaning is to remove plaque, tarter, and stains that have accumulated on the surface of your teeth. Particular attention is paid to areas that brushing and flossing can neglect.
Fluoride treatments have been used for decades to maintain patients’ healthy teeth. Fluoride is a natural mineral that helps strengthen teeth and prevent cavities. While commercial toothpastes will often contain some fluoride, a professional treatment is recommended for optimum protection.
Oral Cancer Screening
Early diagnosis is essential to effectively treating oral cancers. We perform an examination of your mouth and assess whether you are at a higher risk for developing such cancers.
Night Guards & Sport Guards
Mouth guards offer superior protection with a custom fit. While both styles of mouth guard shield your teeth, they serve different purposes, and are made of different materials. A Sport Guard protects against hard impact, while Night Guards are used to protect teeth against excessive clenching or grinding.
Scaling and Root Planing
Scaling and Root Planing becomes necessary when a patient develops gum disease, or an inflammation of gum tissue. Scaling involves the use of ultrasonic instruments that vibrate and loosen plaque bacteria. Remaining plaque is then removed with manual tools. Root Planing is similar, but differs in that the roots of your teeth get scaled.
We take pride in introducing previously unavailable services to the region, and endeavor to continually educate ourselves in the use of new tools and techniques.
