Our dental hygienists are qualified, experienced professionals who will take their time listening to your concerns as well as educating you on the importance of preventive care. Prevention begins with the control of plaque and calculus (mineralized plaque), which are the main causes of tooth decay and periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is known as the silent killer of teeth, because most patients feel no symptoms until it”s too late. As part of our thorough dental examination we first review your medical history and any conditions that may affect your oral health. We perform a soft tissue and oral cancer exam, and examine the teeth for decay. We also take any necessary x-rays. For children’s preventive care we may recommend fluoride to help make the teeth more resistant to decay. We also use dental sealants, which act as a barrier, protecting the teeth against decay-causing bacteria.
Our Sterilization Center and state-of-the-art procedures meet all the Center for Disease Control guidelines. We heat and sterilize all hand pieces and instruments. We use gloves, masks, gowns, eye protection and barrier covers. We use only ADA-approved disinfectants.
