Dental Hygiene Services

Oral health is directly related to your overall health. The better your oral health – your teeth and gums are, the better you feel.

During a dental hygiene appointment, also called cleaning or scaling, our Dental Hygienist meticulously removes all hard and soft deposits both above and below the gumline using an ultrasonic scaler and specialized hand instruments. In some patients, increased sensitivity around the gums and teeth requires the use of local anesthetic. It is very important to remove all deposits as they harbor harmful bacteria that contribute to diseases such as gingivitis and more severe periodontitis.
