Good oral hygiene is important for your dental health, and it also plays a large role in your overall health and well-being. Our dental hygiene program is designed to preserve your teeth and the supporting tissues by preventing dental disease.
We recommend periodic cleanings and exams to maintain your oral health. At your cleanings, we will remove plaque, stains and deposits from teeth, especially under the gum line and between the teeth where toothbrushes don't reach. We will also review and assess your home care, giving advice and instructions on areas which need improvement, and helping you find and use the best tools to keep your teeth and gums clean.
For some patients, additional preventive services may be indicated. We believe in the use of dental sealants and fluoride treatments to help prevent cavities, especially for children.
If you have any questions about your current hygiene plan please ask us.
