Dental Hygiene & Periodontal Health

While at our office, we ensure 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 an essential part of the dental visit for the patient. With the advances in modern technology, we can pinpoint the start of a potential problem much earlier in its evolution. The ability to do so is essential in treating any issues before them becoming a major irreversible problem. 

The oral cancer screening is often completed with an ultraviolet light or similar device that allows us to view issues that can’t always be detected by the human eye under normal conditions. 

Certain lifestyle choices can greatly impact the health of tissues and your overall health in the mouth. If you are a smoker or heavy drinker, make sure to get regular screenings when you visit the dentist.

Root Planing

Often there is plaque and tartar that accumulates below the gum line. In this scenario, we will clean and smooth this area with special instruments to ensure that it is completely spotless. If this area is not kept clean, the entire area can become irritated with the bacteria in the tartar and plaque. It’s very important to have your dentist check this area if you have bleeding during brushing.
