Oral Hygiene

brushing

Check-ups are necessary as it is important to main optimum oral health to treat any issues as they arise. We don’t all need significant treatment but we all need the confidence that our dentist will treat each patient, no matter how minor the treatment, with the same precision as they would a complex task.

In addition to the meticulous cleaning, polishing, and examination of your teeth, we also take the time to help our patients develop proper oral hygiene habits at home. We will evaluate your hygiene techniques and make adjustments to your routine where needed. Our doctor and hygienists will also make suggestions for preventative measures such as dental sealants or night guards to protect against bruxism & TMJ.

If we feel that you are suffering from gingivitis or more severe gum disease, we may recommend a root scaling or planing. These measures can be instrumental in preventing bone loss and helping you to keep your natural teeth.
