"The mouth is the window into the health of the body." -Anonymous
Our team of Dental Hygienists are excited to help you with your oral hygiene. With regular dental screenings and cleanings you can avoid a lot of time in the dental chair. It is recommended to have at least two dental visits a year, every 6 months, unless directed otherwise.
The mouth is filled with countless amounts of bacteria, this can lead to tooth decay and periodontal disease. Research has found that periodontitis is linked to health problems such as heart disease, stroke, and bacterial pneumonia. This is why oral health is so important.
If you have any of these symptoms please give us a call and schedule an appointment:
Bleeding gums while flossing or brushing;
Swollen, red, tender gums;
Gums that can be pulled away from the teeth;
Persistent bad breath;
Pus between gums and teeth;
Loose or separating teeth.
Plaque is a soft, sticky film with bacteria that constantly forms on teeth. This can cause decay and disease. If plaque is not removed it can harden and form calculus (tartar), this makes keeping your mouth clean difficult.
