Good oral hygiene is vital for your body’s health, not just your teeth and gums. That’s why we recommend our patients make an appointment for a cleaning twice a year! Aside from seeing our patients’ smiling faces, we check up on their oral health and hygiene.
As a general dentist, we see patients of all ages, so we customize our dental cleanings based on each patient’s periodontal health. We utilize medicated gels along with prescription mouth rinses in problem areas if necessary. We remove plaque and tartar that have accumulated on your teeth using ultrasonic scalers. We floss your teeth, and we complete your dental visit by, of course, cleaning your teeth!
For children, we recommend incorporating sealants as part of their preventive dental care. These thin, plastic coatings that are easily applied to the chewing surfaces of the molars can last upwards of 5-10 years. Sealants help to prevent tooth decay, which can start at a young age without the proper preventive care such as daily brushing and flossing.
