Our state registered dental hygienists provide the following services:
Routine Adult Cleaning
A comprehensive set of xrays is taken to screen for tooth decay and any signs of gum and bone disease. You can also expect scaling and polishing of the teeth, a full exam with one of our doctors and fluoride treatment for anyone with a high risk for decay. We also perform an oral cancer screening and provide home care education and dental related nutritional counseling.
We love working with kids! Bring your little one in as soon as they have teeth so we can help them learn to love going to the dentist at an early age. For children who are old enough we will take xrays to detect any signs of decay starting. We will gently polish their teeth, have doctor do an exam and place a fluoride varnish to prevent decay. We understand that going to the dentist can be scary for kids. We strive to make the appointment fun and easy as possible for them so they can become great patients for life!
At your initial appointment if bone loss and gum disease are detected we will provide an additional procedure to help slow or stop the disease process. Gum disease is responsible for approximately 70% of tooth loss in adults. When bacteria forms below the gumline it produces toxins that cause separation of the gum tissue and tooth structure, leading to loss of bone. Our hygienists will perform a deep cleaning to remove this build up and ensure you are comfortable during the procedure.
