Dental Hygiene and Periodontal Health
While at our office, we make sure that you receive the highest level of service and ensure that our dental work is of the highest quality. To ensure that you maintain great oral health, this level of quality needs to extend into your personal oral hygiene routine. We can help you establish a dental hygiene routine that will keep your teeth healthy and white. 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 deep (periodontal) cleanings and treatment, or refer you to one of our recommended specialists.
A professional cleaning is the best way to maintain your oral health. At your cleaning appointment, you will have digital X-rays taken. These X-rays are the state of the art at this time, and take excellent radiographs with a very low radiation dose. You are always covered by a lead shield to protect you. We can look at your X-rays together on our TV monitors in each of our treatment rooms and discuss your treatment with you.
If you show evidence of “pyorrhea,” or periodontal disease, we will discuss various treatments for that condition with you. It is our goal to protect and retain your teeth for a lifetime. All gum treatments and cleanings are covered by your dental insurance. Remember, dental insurance is not intended to cover your costs at 100%.
