Our diagnoses can also inform you on the state of your teeth and gums, and clue you in on measures you can take to preempt any possible dental issues.
Our state-of-the-art practice specializes in both adults and children. We believe in the importance of preventative care with an increased focus in gum and bone health (Periodontal Disease), which is vital to the foundation of supporting your teeth. Our team strives to help you maintain a healthy mouth, but we also use necessary tools to detect problems before it becomes serious or detrimental to your health.
Should we find anything wrong with your teeth and gums, we will attend to them to the best of our abilities. We will gladly offer our suite of dental services if we can solve your problems. If you suspect that something is wrong with your teeth and/or gums, but cannot quite place a finger on it, come to us and let us identify and address your concerns.
Preventative Dental Procedures
In order to maintain a healthy smile, we recommend routine cleanings at least two times per year for most patients. Some patients may need more frequent visits to help maintain a healthy mouth focusing on gum and bone health. All of our healthy smile appointments include a complimentary paraffin hand wax for you to enjoy during your visit!
Our Hygienists specialize in a variety of different cleaning methods such as: hand scalers, ultrasonic scalers, prophy jet, and traditional polish. We strongly recommend the application of fluoride for both children and adults, to help prevent tooth decay. Sealants are also offered as a preventative material on molar teeth to help prevent cavities within deep crevices of your teeth.
Periodontal Health Diagnosis
