The dental office staff is devoted to providing excellent oral hygiene care to patients of all ages. During your first visit we will complete a thorough review of your dental care history and we will also complete an oral exam. Upon completion of the exam we will provide you with the treatment options available and the amount of dental visit required.
The different services include:
Periodontal assessment is a necessary element to every dental hygiene exam. If early disease is detected, there is a great chance that the negative impacts can be reversed with ongoing and regular visits to the dental office. If the disease is in a more advanced level, it can be treated with non-surgical therapy which includes cleaning below the gum line and use of antibacterial treatments like Laser.
If this is a severe case of gum disease, the patient will be referred to a Periodontist in order to stop the disease from spreading, reducing it or minimize the progression. The staff will provide feedback and advice on maintaining good oral hygiene and some prevention techniques for the patient.
