Preventative Hygiene

The importance of oral hygiene is underscored by the following fact: more adults lose their teeth as a result of gum (periodontal) disease than from any other causeThe good news is that gum disease is preventable.

That is why you'll hear our hygiene team spending so much of their time talking to patients about prevention.  By emphasizing prevention, patients stand a far better chance of keeping their teeth and gums in optimum condition for their entire lives.

An appointment with your hygienist is much more than cleaning.  It is an opportunity for us to evaluate the condition of your teeth and gums to ensure that any subtle changes over time are detected.  Our hygienist will provide you with the best periodontal care, tailoring the program and frequency of visits to your individual needs.  These visits are t he best strategy for achieving  and maintaining excellence in oral health.
