Hygiene Services

Regular professional attention to dental hygiene prevents and alerts us to health issues with the teeth, and can help maintain tooth health and longevity. This is the most important and integral part of maintenance of the periodontium, which support our teeth.

A valuable element of regular professional dental hygiene examinations is the identification of health issues…many health problems first present themselves to the dentist. Since prophylaxis involves a thorough examination of the entire oral cavity, the dentist is able to screen for oral cancer, evaluate the risk of periodontitis and often spot signs of medical problems like diabetes and kidney problems.
