staff4.jpgHygiene Our hygienists help you maintain your overall oral health through periodic hygiene appointments, which include an oral cancer screening exam, periodontal screening exam, yearly x-rays to help diagnose dental decay and periodontal disease, cleaning and polishing of the teeth, and where necessary, the definitive periodontal charting. For those patients who have more serious periodontal conditions, our hygienists do scaling and root planing to eliminate the source of infection from below the gum line and, where necessary, also irrigate periodontal pockets with antimicrobial agents or inject these pockets with a time-released antibiotic which works for over a 20 day period, helping to promote reattachment of the gum tissue to the tooth. We also use LASER technology and LASER Bacterial Reduction (LBR). Used in periodontal therapy, it kills the bacteria around the teeth (sulcular decontamination) to give healthier gums and for gingival curettage to go along with scaling and root planing to remove diseased tissue. Our hygienists help educate you about brushing, flossing, and using other aids to help keep your entire mouth healthy and will inform you about fluoride and other products which may help prevent decay and maintain healthy gums, and breath products to help prevent bad breath. They are a good source of information about the cosmetic procedures we offer such as bleaching, bonding, veneers, all porcelain crowns and white fillings.

Our Dental Assistants
Our dental assistants assist the dentist with your dental treatment, and help you feel more relaxed and comfortable during your visit. They inform you about the nature of the treatment you are getting, why you need it and what steps are involved, and explain what will be done at additional visits. They also can inform you about other procedures you may be interested in. They take x-rays to help diagnose problems you may have, and take impressions for study models. They go over instructions for follow up home care and help set up your next appointment to best meet your needs.
