Dental Hygiene/Periodontal Health
Our longstanding goal has been to provide high quality dental care.
To ensure that you maintain great oral health, this level of quality needs to extend to your personal oral hygiene routine.
We can help you establish a dental hygiene routine that will keep your teeth healthy. 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 normal excellent cleanings, periodontal cleanings and treatment, or refer you to a highly qualified specialist.
Oral cancer screenings
Oral cancer screenings are a very important part of the dental visit for the patient. With the advances in modern technology, we are now able to pinpoint the start of a potential problem much earlier in its evolution. The ability to do so is extremely important in being able to treat any issues prior to them becoming a major irreversible problem.
Certain lifestyle choices can have a great impact on the health of tissues and your overall health in the mouth. Smoking and heavy alcohol usage take a heavy toll on a person's dental health.
Plaque and tartar (calculus) accumulates below the gum line.Bacteria is present in tartar and plaque. This must be removed in order to have healthy gums and bone. If it is not done, periodontal disease can result, and severe bone loss and tooth loss can occur.
Many teeth are lost simply because people do not have regular cleanings. Bone loss is usually irreversible.
