Dental hygiene plays a large role in our master preventive care plan that we have for every patient. This is because of one simple fact: Beyond your regular at-home brushing and flossing routine, seeing your dentist and maintaining dental hygiene visits ensures your smile will be healthy enough to last a lifetime. We highly encourage dental hygiene visits as a powerful preventive measure for all of our patients and their oral health.
Here’s the thing: Even if you’re diligent about brushing and flossing your teeth at home, there’s still a good likelihood that you’re going to miss something. And that something could possibly happen to be harmful plaque or bacteria that causes cavities. Our dental hygienists are specially trained and equipped with some very effective, yet gentle dental hygiene technology we think every patient of every age can appreciate.
– Ultrasonic Scaler – Forget about the old ways of scraping away plaque and tartar from your teeth with metal dental tools. We rely on the ultrasonic scaler to safely remove plaque from your teeth and below your gum line. Your smile is guaranteed to feel fresh and clean when you leave the office.
– Controlled Air Flow – We now use a special airflow tool that allows for more comfortable, precise polishing of your teeth. It also helps with the effective removal of biofilms from your teeth and gums.
Great dental health comes from good dental hygiene, from both going to the dentist for regular cleanings and taking care of your teeth at home.
