Oral Hygiene

Brushing and flossing at home will remove food particles and plaque from your teeth, but they won’t remove tartar. Tartar is harder than bone and can only be removed by a trained hygienist using special tools. During an oral hygiene appointment, the hygienist will remove tartar and built-up plaque and clean and polish your teeth.

Dental Exam

Regular dental exams are crucial to detecting and treating dental problems before they become serious. During an exam, our dentist will check your teeth for signs of damage or decay, and they’ll also check the overall health of your mouth and throat. The exam will include an oral cancer screening and we may take X-rays to monitor the health of your teeth below the gumline.

You should go for an oral hygiene appointment and exam at least once a year. Call us today to make an appointment.
