hygiene

 
 

We believe in the importance of regular professional cleaning and check-ups.  Only in this manner, can you minimize or avoid the need for costly and extensive dental treatments in the future and/or loss of your teeth.  However, the responsibility of returning for your cleaning and check-up lies with you, the patient.

An integral part of maintaining your teeth for life is the removal of plaque and tarter on a regular basis.  The frequency of your visits is based upon your individual needs and oral health.  During your visit we will update your medical history, perform an oral cancer screening exam, check your teeth for cavities, review oral hygiene instructions, and monitor your periodontal (gum) condition.  Fluoride treatments are provided for children under the age of thirteen and for those adults when appropriate.
