Dental hygiene services

Dental health is one of the most important health maintenance a person can do

In order to keep your smiling shining bright we provide an array of dental hygiene services. We provide education and prevention on dental hygiene to ensure that your family is equipped to maintain your dental health. Our dental hygiene services include teeth cleanings and tooth decay prevention.You should be brushing your teeth every morning and night, or after meals if you are prone to cavities, as well as flossing once a day. However, some dental plaque and stains build up in areas you can’t reach which form hard deposits that can cause decay. Teeth cleanings done by our team of dental professionals can reach the areas of the hard deposits and clean them out. This procedure can be done in one visit and is over quickly depending on the amount of buildup in your teeth. Your dental and medical history will be reviewed before each cleaning as well as an oral cancer screening.

Our teeth cleaning services also include:

  • Decay detection with x-rays
  • Removal of plaque, stains, and tartar with a deep cleaning
  • Application of fluoride
  • Teeth polishing
  • Sealants

After every teeth cleaning, we provide at-home dental health education and instructions. In order to prevent any cavities within your teeth it is best to follow our dentists’ instructions and read up on cavity prevention.

Another service we provide is tooth decay prevention

Our team will give you and your family information of what you need to do to prevent tooth decay. Tooth decay is caused by the bacteria in our mouth combine with food sugars to form acid. The acid breaks through your teeth’s enamel causing decay and, if left untreated, cavities. Treatment for your tooth decay depends on the severity of it. If your tooth decay is minor, you will only require a dental filling.

If the decay has severely damaged your tooth, you will need a crown which is a tooth shaped cap made to replace the area of decay. A root canal will be required if the decay has infected the pulp of your tooth. In this case one of our dentists will remove the decayed area and apply a crown to your tooth. In the most severe case of tooth decay, you will require the full removal of the decayed tooth with a tooth extraction. However all of these procedures, especially the more painful ones, will not be needed if preventive dental care is practiced at home.

Here are some ways you can prevent tooth decay and maintain a healthy smile by

  • Brushing and flossing at least twice every day
  • Using mouthwash or a rinse after brushing
  • Eating foods low in sugar
  • Routine dental visits and cleanings

Overall, we pride ourselves with the dental health of your family and hope to provide high quality dental hygiene services. Your dentist will evaluate you or your family’s oral health and help created a prevention-based dental plan. The dental health checkups are just as important as medical checkups and should be scheduled as needed.
