What Is Dental Hygiene?

Professional dental hygiene is the array of services, treatments, and patient education that promote and protect the health of your teeth, gums, and jaws. Dental hygiene is important for every age group, regardless of the current state of your oral health.

Our dental hygiene services include fluoride to protect a child's developing smile, general maintenance and cleanings, gum charting for adults and seniors, and other services. We take the time to talk with you to fully understand your oral health concerns and smile goals before creating a treatment plan that is unique to you and your specific needs.

Patient Education

When you visit our dentist for your biannual exam and cleaning, you will notice that we make it a point to explain what we are doing and why we're doing it. We provide this information as well as helpful tips and suggestions to empower you with the knowledge you need to enjoy an effective daily dental hygiene routine at home. For little ones, we use age-appropriate language and walk them through proper brushing and flossing techniques.

Tailored Dental Care for All Ages

Consistent and effective dental care plays a significant role in the health of your smile. Our compassionate dentist combines decades of experience with a gentle chairside manner to create a positive experience every time you visit us. You can expect a thorough, quality cleaning and polishing of your teeth for your biannual appointments, but we provide age-specific services as well.

Children: Your little one's milk teeth require protection to safeguard their smile as it develops. We use fluoride treatments to protect and strengthen their teeth. We take the time to teach them why it's important to brush and floss their teeth twice daily to help them create a quality oral health routine.

Teens: As young adults mature, they tend to consume more soda and sweets. Their lifestyle and food choices creates a greater need to maintain their biannual dental exams and cleanings in order to clean away the tarter and plaque. This helps to prevent cavities as well as gum disease. If your teen is already suffering from gingivitis, then we perform gum charting and scaling to halt the progression of gum disease.

Adults and Seniors: Adults and seniors tend to have a firm understanding of healthy dental hygiene habits, but we take the time to offer tips and information to deepen your knowledge. We provide effective cleaning to protect and boost your oral health. Our team also performs gum charting to track signs of gum disease and scaling when necessary to encourage the health of your gums.

Dental Hygiene FAQs

Our team values education and questions that lead to understanding. We encourage you to share your questions and concerns, and we are happy to provide the answers you need to make an informed decision regarding your oral health. Here are some of the most common questions we receive:

How often should I get a checkup?
You should visit the dentist for a checkup and cleaning every six months to prevent cavities, infection, and gum disease, and to maintain good overall oral health.

What should my daily dental routine include?
Your daily dental hygiene routine should consist of brushing your teeth twice each day and flossing your teeth once every day. It's recommended to also use an approved mouthwash on a daily basis.

Why do I need x-rays of my teeth?
Dental x-rays reveal any issues that are below the surface. These images can show signs of tooth decay, infection, bone loss, impacted teeth, and more. We use x-rays to develop a treatment plan that encompasses the needs of your teeth, jaws, and gums.
