Dental Hygiene Care – More Than Just A Cleaning
Hygiene appointments are for optimal dental health
Regularly climbing into our hygiene chair can mean gaining better health, better looks, and even staying out of the dental chair! When you consider that oral disease can be silent and symptom-free and that research has linked oral disease with other health problems, making regular hygiene appointments is definitely your wisest choice.
People often misinterpret hygiene appointments … they’re not just a simple cleaning. Here’s what happens when you’re here:
We examine your gums to screen for areas at risk. If you have periodontal disease, your healing progress is monitored with detail. Regular cleaning will help keep your gums and teeth as healthy as possible.
Prevention is a crucial part of your visit. Regular appointments allow us to catch problems in their early stages before things get out of hand.
Take advantage of our knowledge! Your appointment is also a wonderful opportunity to ask all the questions you have about how restorative and cosmetic dentistry, and even broader topics such as how medications affect your oral health. In short, if you’ve got the questions, we’ve got the time.
We provide patient education and demonstrations for correct brushing and flossing, explain proper cleaning and maintenance for dentures, crowns and bridges, and orthodontics.
Please ensure that you are scheduled for a regular hygiene appointment … and that you commit to making the date. If you don’t have one scheduled, please give us a call. We can help you attain – and maintain optimal oral health and a clean, great-looking smile.
