Dental Hygiene & Periodontal Health
A good home care routine combined with regular cleanings and exams is the best way to create and maintain excellent oral hygiene and health. Cleanings by an experienced dental hygienist allow for the removal of tartar, plaque, and bacteria in places brushing and flossing can't reach, helping to protect your teeth from decay, maintain healthy gums, and prevent periodontal disease. Our piezo ultrasonic scalers ensure that your cleanings are as comfortable as possible.
Additionally, Dr. Shepherd and our hygienists can identify any areas of concern and help you establish a dental hygiene routine that will keep your teeth and gums healthy and happy. If you have any questions about your current hygiene plan, please ask us.
In the presence of periodontal disease, we design a soft tissue management program to promote optimal soft tissue hygiene and restore your health with minimal discomfort. Using state-of-the-art equipment, we provide periodontal cleanings, including scaling and root planing, and adjunctive treatment to heal distressed tissue, remove harmful bacteria, and prevent bone loss to help you preserve your smile.
We highly recommend Sonicare and Oral B toothbrushes to optimize your oral hygiene routine and help you take the best possible care of your teeth and gums.
