Preventive Care

During your regular hygiene visits, your hygienist will remove plaque (soft deposits), tartar or calculus (hard deposits), and stain from your teeth. She will also evaluate your gum tissue and bone level by taking probing depths or pocket measurements. After the cleaning, the hygienist will floss and polish your teeth to a beautiful shine.

Additionally, you will have all your questions answered about your homecare procedures and products. If you have trouble choosing the right toothbrush or flossing effectively, your hygienist can help. Should you develop gum disease, our hygienist will provide counsel and treatment to control the condition.

It will be important for you to work with the dental hygienist so that you can achieve optimal oral health. This will mean working together through homecare or co-therapy to keep your teeth for your lifetime. It is a commitment from you, the patient, to do your best at home and a commitment from your hygienist to provide the best treatment possible during your hygiene appointments.

Root Planing and Scaling

This “deep” cleaning treatment is provided by the hygienist for patients who have tartar, calculus and bacteria buried below the gum line on the tooth. Your regular tooth brushing and flossing removes the tartar that is above the gum line of your tooth.
