Everyone over 3 years of age should visit the dentist for a professional hygiene appointment twice per year. Our gentle hygienist will inspect your gums for periodontal disease, the leading cause of tooth loss for American adults. The hygienist are specially trained to detect, deter, and treat gum disease.
We prefer to help you maintain optimal oral health, inflammation and bacteria in your mouth can affect other health problems.
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 and bacteria from below the gum line
- Root planning to smooth rough root surfaces where plaque and bacteria build up
