Our Continuing Care vision is to inspire our patients to take a personal interest and responsibility in their oral health. Our dental hygienists take pride in updating our patients concerning their oral heath at every continuing care visit, providing home care instruction, new product information, and recommendations for a successful outcome.
At every continuing care visit, our dental hygienists measure your gum health for periodontal disease. Periodontal disease includes gingivitis, which, if left untreated, may result in bone loss, tooth loss, or possibly other systemic health problems. Periodontal disease has been linked to heart attacks, kidney disease, diabetes, premature low-birth weight babies, and prostate cancer.
Dr. Courey will also perform an oral cancer exam at each continuing care visit. Oral cancer can be very dangerous, as they are highly metastatic (rapidly spreading) in nature.
Our hygienists are highly trained and experienced. They value good patient relationships. They will take the time necessary to properly clean your teeth and still create a friendly atmosphere for patient care. Call us today to become part of our dental “family”. We look forward to meeting you!
