Prevention for Your Healthiest Smile

Routine dental exams and teeth cleanings with our hygienist are non-negotiable if you want a healthy, problem-free smile. Staying current with these appointments every six months—or as recommended—is like a free pass to a healthy smile. The goal is to stay a step ahead of dental disease and provide prompt treatment for problems like cavities and gum disease. 

Healthy Teeth Start with Healthy Gums

Healthy gums are the foundation for excellent oral health. Gum disease is highly preventable, but unfortunately, it is also widespread, largely due to a lack of effective oral hygiene and preventive dentistry. But gum health goes far beyond your mouth as research has proven that chronic gum infections also impact your general health and well-being.

With teeth cleanings every six months, our dental hygienists remove built-up plaque and tartar that clings to teeth and leads to decay and gum disease. When you pair your at-home efforts brushing and flossing with professional teeth cleanings, you have the best chance of staying a step ahead of gum disease and maintaining a healthy smile.
