What To Expect
In addition to the cleaning, polishing, and examination of your teeth and oral cavity, our hygienists will help you develop and maintain proper oral hygiene habits at home. We will evaluate your hygiene techniques and make adjustments to your routine as needed. We will also make suggestions regarding preventative measures, including fluoride rinses or toothpastes, dental sealants or occlusal guards.
Our hygienists will also screen for changes in the oral tissue to try to detect cancer at an early stage, when it can be more successfully treated.
If we feel that your periodontal health involves more severe gum disease, we may recommend referral to a Periodontist. These measures can be instrumental in preventing bone loss and helping you to keep your natural teeth.
