All new patients undergo a complete dental hygiene examination to determine the state of their oral health and identify any areas of immediate or long-term concern. We will take your complete medical history to ensure that your oral health is optimal.
We can help find early signs of problems with your gums and teeth. Early detection is key for treating cavities, gum disease, and broken fillings. If left untreated, these problems can be very expensive and inconvenient, and may result in gum surgery, root canals, or even removal of teeth.
Medical studies indicate that 85% of people with ongoing bad breath (halitosis) are caused by dental problems. Having a good oral hygiene regiment is essential in preventing bad breath. Regular 4-6 month check ups and dental cleanings are the best way to ensure high quality oral hygiene.
During your cleaning, we will polish your teeth to a beautiful pearly shine and remove most coffee, tobacco, and tea stains from your teeth. We also offer professional teeth whitening for those stains that soak into the tooth. Enjoy more confidence with a brighter whiter smile.
