Preventative Hygiene

Dental hygiene services provided by dental hygienists are important to maintain your oral health. Regular hygiene appointments are the best way to ensure you have a healthy smile. 


How can I keep my smile healthy? 

While every patient is different, and some patients may require specialized programs, there are a few main areas that are always important to maintaining excellent oral health.

Daily flossing and regular brushing are essential to maintain the health of your teeth and gums.

Additionally, every patient should visit a dental hygienist for a professional cleaning and checkup every six months.

Frequency of your cleaning and checkup will depend on your dental history and the current health of your smile.
