Everyone over the age of four should visit the dentist for a professional hygiene appointment twice per year. Our exceptional staff of registered dental hygienists will perform a professional dental cleaning removing any tartar, plague, and perform any needed teeth polishing to remove any tough stains or plague. Our hygienists will also inspect your gums for periodontal disease, the leading cause of tooth loss for American adults. The hygienists are specially trained to detect and treat gum disease. We want to help you maintain optimal oral health so that you never have to worry about gum disease or any other ailment. However, if you develop periodontal problems, we are here to help you.
If we find cause for concern, we may recommend that you change your oral healthcare routine or the products you use at home. We may also suggest a deep cleaning, which involves: scaling (to remove tartar from below the gum line), root planning (to smooth rough root surfaces where plaque builds up) and Arestin antibiotic treatment (to kill bacterial infection).
