More than cleanings, hygiene visits allow our team to thoroughly examine your mouth, and stop any problems in their tracks.
During your hygiene appointment, your teeth will be cleaned, digital x-rays will be taken (to detect any problems while they’re in their early stages), your mouth will be screened for oral cancer, and your gums will be measured for periodontal disease.
Thanks to our advanced technology, your cleanings are amazingly comfortable thorough. We use ultrasonic scalers like the Cavitron and the Piezo. These state-of-the-art instruments use oscillating sound waves to gently vibrate the tartar away from your teeth removing it both above and below the gum line. These ultrasonic units are so gentle they can even be used to administer deep cleanings and gum therapy. Many first time hygiene patients tell us their teeth feel cleaner than ever before!
