Great oral health starts with keeping your teeth and gums clean and free of bacteria, plaque, and tartar. That’s why we encourage consistent and regularly scheduled hygiene visits. These visits start with an examination and evaluation of the health of your mouth, teeth and gums, measuring your gum pockets and taking x-rays if necessary. Once your examination is complete, your hygienist will use the latest techniques to clean, polish and protect your teeth. This includes use of the Cavitron, an incredibly gentle ultrasonic device designed remove calculus, stains, and plaque; delicate cleaning with a hand tool, and application of Fluoride (if needed) for remineralization or sensitivity. And of course we always use a gentle touch and anesthetics if needed to ensure that you are comfortable during every cleaning.
