Hygiene Visits & Instruction
Our dental hygienists are trained and experienced at helping patients maintain healthy gums and teeth. At least twice a year, you should schedule a professional hygiene appointment so that we can remove harmful plaque, tartar, and decaying food particles from your teeth. We will also check for gum disease, the leading cause of tooth loss for American adults. If we find that you need gum disease therapy, we'll recommend a program designed exclusively for you.
In addition to cleaning your teeth, our hygienists will teach you how to properly care for your teeth and gums at home. They'll instruct you on techniques for effective flossing, brushing, and even fighting bad breath. If you have questions about any aspect of caring for your teeth, or if you want to know which products would benefit you most, just ask. We are here to help you achieve and maintain optimal oral health.
