Hygiene Services

Our dental hygienists are gifted professionals that are a huge part of our practice. They pride themselves in not only providing top notch cleanings, but also inform patients about overall oral health. Your oral health and the quality of your smile have a large impact on your well-being. A bright, welcoming smile can greatly increase your self-confidence, and make a positive impression on others.

Preventive dental care is extremely important throughout your life, no matter what your age. By practicing good oral hygiene at home and scheduling regular check-ups with the doctor, you can help keep your smile bright and healthy for many years to come. Here are a few simple ways that you can prevent the build-up of plaque and cavities:

  • Brush twice daily with fluorinated toothpaste, ideally after each meal.
  • Floss at least once a day.
  • Eat a well-balanced diet and minimize the amount of sugars you consume.
  • Remember to schedule regular checkups with the dentist every 6 months for a professional teeth cleaning.

Regular visits allow your dentist to diagnose any problems early, monitor any areas of decay, and remove plaque that has built up over time. Your dentist will also assess the health of the gum and other tissues in your mouth. The health of your teeth and gums also affects other aspects of your physical health. Researchers continually link good oral health to a lower risk of heart attack, stroke and other life-threatening conditions. The most important part of maintaining your oral health is conscientious personal oral hygiene and regular maintenance visits with your dentist.
