No matter how diligently you keep up with your home oral hygiene routine, no matter how carefully you monitor and time your kids’ toothbrushing and flossing, nothing can replace the all-important professional cleaning you get from your dental hygienist. We recommend cleanings every six months for adults and children with a clean bill of health (more for those who are prone to cavities or periodontal disease). These dental hygiene visits allow us to deep clean around your gums, where tooth brushing often misses, removing the plaque and tartar buildup that can lead to gum disease and tooth loss. We make these cleanings extra gentle and effective by using the Piezo ultrasonic cleaner. This device blasts away even the hardest buildup with soundwaves for a clean you won’t be able to miss – and yet even our most sensitive patients tell us they were comfortable and pain-free all the way through. We combine this technology with intraoral cameras so we can see the surface of every tooth as we clean – and show you what’s going on in your mouth as well. You’ll leave knowing that your teeth and gums are fresh, free of bacteria, and sparklingly smooth. It’s a great feeling!
