Why is oral hygiene so important?
Adults over 35 lose more teeth to gum disease (periodontal disease) than from cavities. Three out of four adults are affected at some time in their life. Periodontal disease and decay are both caused by bacterial plaque. Plaque is a colorless film, which sticks to your teeth at the gumline. Plaque constantly forms on your teeth. By thorough daily brushing and flossing, and having a dental hygienist regularly clean your teeth, you can remove these germs and help prevent periodontal disease.
Daily brushing and flossing will keep dental calculus to a minimum, but regular visits to our office for a professional cleaning will remove calculus in places your toothbrush and floss have missed. Your visit to our office is an important part of your program to prevent gum disease. Keep your teeth for your lifetime.
We offer everything you need to experience a pain free, relaxing visit. From state of the art massage chairs, to movies and Netflix, to blankets, headphones, and warm towels to refresh at the end of your visit, your comfort and care is our top priority.
