Regularly climbing into our hygiene chair can mean gaining better health, better looks, and even staying out of the dental chair! When you consider that oral disease can be silent and symptom-free and that research has linked oral disease with other health problems, making regular hygiene appointments is definitely your wisest choice.
People often misinterpret hygiene appointments ... they’re not just a simple cleaning. Here’s what happens when you’re here:
• We examine your gums, tongue, palette, and throat to screen for areas at risk. If you have periodontal disease, your healing progress is monitored with detail. Regular cleaning will help keep your mouth, gums, and teeth as healthy as possible.
• Prevention is a crucial part of your visit. Regular appointments allow us to catch problems in their early stages before things get out of hand- keeping you healthy and saving you money.
• Take advantage of our knowledge! Your appointment is also a wonderful opportunity to ask all the questions you have about how restorative and cosmetic dentistry, and even broader topics such as how medications affect your oral health. In short, if you’ve got the questions, we’ve got the time.
• Our dental team provides patient education and demonstrations for correct brushing and flossing, explain proper cleaning and maintenance for implants, crowns and bridges, and orthodontics.
Please ensure that you are scheduled for ... and that you commit to making the date with either Lois or Shannon. It will ensure your optimum oral health and a clean, great-looking smile.
