Dental Hygiene (Cleanings)
Professional cleanings are an integral component in maintaining your oral and overall health. Other medical issues have been linked with gum tissue disease.
Our hygiene staff is courteous, gentle, knowledgeable, and keep track of all the advancements in their field. For many of our patients who have more routine dental needs (such as cleanings and an occasional filling) or have already had prosthodontic work, hygiene visits are an opportunity to keep tabs on their overall health.
If you have a periodontal specialist monitoring your gum health, we are happy to have you back for yearly inspections and have the periodontal staff do all the cleanings, or alternate hygiene visits between your periodontist and our office. Most periodontists encourage this latter idea.
