Oral Hygiene Services

It's not "just a cleaning" ...

Bacteria, in the form of plaque, lives & thrives in the mouth. Poor oral health can lead to infection, tooth decay, gum disease, tooth loss, diabetic complications, unhealthy eating habits, unhealthy social habits, poor quality of life & overall health, and low self esteem.

Good oral health is an important component of overall health. Achieving good oral health is a collaborative effort. It can be achieved by consuming healthy foods & drinks, daily brushing & flossing, and visiting your dentist & hygienist regularly.

Sadly, many people do not understand the value of regular check-ups & oral hygiene services. It's not "just a cleaning":

During hygiene appointments, our dentists & hygienists consider your:

  • Health history
  • Examine your head & neck
  • Assess your teeth & gums
  • Screen for oral cancer
  • Educate
  • Develop an individual treatment plan with you to help you achieve and maintain optimum oral health.

We also individualize oral hygiene schedules based on individual needs vs. the standard 6 month protocol &/or what insurance companies may pay for.

Please keep in mind: Insurance coverage is cost-based & our recommendations are health based. Some patients are fine to visit annually, some every 9 months, some every 6, and some (those with gum/perio disease) benefit from a 3 month hygiene schedule. That said, we respect a patient's right to choose a hygiene schedule they are comfortable with.
