Recent studies show that good oral hygiene is essential not only for your dental health, but your overall health and well being, too. Our comprehensive dental hygiene program is designed to preserve your teeth and the supporting structures by preventing the onset, progress and recurrence of dental disease.
We recommend routine professional dental cleanings to maintain optimal oral health. It’s extremely important to remove plaque from teeth, especially from places where a toothbrush can’t reach, like underneath the gum line and in between teeth.
Along with regular professional dental cleanings, it’s critical to adopt good dental hygiene habits at home, as well. We make it a point to go over our current home care practices at your dental visits as part of the preventative care program. This allows us to make recommendations as to where you can improve, and instruct you on proper methods of brushing and flossing.
At times, we may recommend additional preventative services for patients. In particular, an integral part of our preventive program for pediatric patients includes fluoride treatments and dental sealants.
