Dental Hygiene Appointments

Dental hygiene cleaning appointments should take place every six months. If you have insurance sometimes it can pay for more frequent visits! Professional teeth cleaning is imperative to your overall oral health. It helps prevent tartar build up and keeps your teeth looking their very best. Regular cleanings also have the added benefit of protecting you from gum disease or irritation. Our professional dental hygienists can do a better job cleaning your teeth than is possible at home due to our special equipment and training. If you aren’t sure about what services you need please contact us and we will work together to determine a treatment plan unique to your needs.

Cleaning

Your hygienist will clean and polish your teeth to remove plaque and tartar. This includes scaling, flossing, a fluoride treatment and a polish to finish it all off.  Plaque and tartar can contribute to tooth decay and gum disease so a hygiene appointment is recommended at least every 6 months.

Fluoride

Fluoride helps protect teeth from decay. Professional fluoride treatments are recommended twice a year, or as needed for all children under the age of 16 during their regularly scheduled examination and cleanings.
