Dental Hygiene/Periodontal Health

DENTAL HYGIENE AND PERIODONTAL HEALTH

Our goal is to access and evaluate each patient who comes into our hygiene department to determine the treatment of their individual hygiene needs. Our hygienist are very competent in using their skills to meet any patient‘s needs.

X-RAYS

Another form of evaluation are dental x-rays. They are taken to check for the amount of bone support around the teeth, they also helps to detect decay in between the teeth.

DENTAL SEALANTS

Dental sealants are recommended for children. Sealants are thin, plastic coating painted on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. Once a sealant is properly placed it will keep the bacteria from getting into the grooves and causing decay.
