Ask your hygienist
We practice what we preach. In fact, proof of our commitment to optimal preventive oral health care can be seen in our wonderful hygienists who are licensed primary oral health care professionals. Their goal is to help you to achieve and maintain optimal oral health through diagnostic assessment, prevention, and education. Here’s how your hygienist develops your personalized dental hygiene plan of care based on your needs.
Assessment – Reviewing your medical and dental history. Examining your teeth for decay, visually and with radiographs. Examining your gum tissue. Assessing your biting, chewing, and swallowing patterns. Evaluating your dental readiness for procedures including cosmetic smile enhancements. And, reassessing your overall treatment.
Prevention – Screening for oral cancer with clinical measurements, radiographs, and other assessment methods. Applying fluoride and sealants. Cleaning and scaling teeth to remove plaque, tartar, and surface stains.
Education – Instruction about brushing and flossing. Counseling about diet and lifestyle and their relationship to oral health. Explanation of dental treatments, orthodontics, periodontal therapy, and cosmetic procedures.
Your hygienist is always happy to answer questions about your personalized plan of care which is imperative to your oral health. After all, proper home care including brushing, flossing, and healthy eating are a crucial part of preventive dentistry. So, make sure to ask even a seemingly unimportant question. You may be surprised how important it really is!
