Regularly scheduled visits to the dentist are a vital part of dental hygiene. During your visit you will spend a good portion of your time with the dental hygienist, who will perform an in depth cleaning that regular brushing and flossing can’t fully achieve. Dental hygienists are skilled healthcare workers who also provide oral health screening, digital diagnostic imaging, and preventive therapy. In addition, the hygienist works with patients to create a dental plan that fits their needs. This dental plan will include regular exams and hygiene therapy to make sure the patient is maintaining proper at home care, and to keep an eye on any areas of concern that may arise.
During their visit our patients will receive the following care:
– complete oral health assessment
– cleaning and polishing of teeth
– complete gum examination
– proper brushing and flossing technique and instruction
