Hygiene Appointments

Your overall health starts with your oral health and includes oral hygiene cleaning treatments.Since your overall health is important to us, after a gentle cleaning we will make sure you are aware of your oral health of your tooth, gums and bone health and give you the options to prevent or treat periodontal disease and oral cancer.

YOUR HYGIENE VISIT WILL BE SPECIFICALLY TAILORED TO YOU AND YOUR OVERALL HEALTH

Our mouths can show the first signs of disease in the body and we are trained to recognize oral health manifestations that may correlate to other systems of the body. The links between gum health and systemic health have been widely researched. Periodontal disease has been associated with a number of ill-health conditions ranging from cardiovascular disease and diabetes to cancer and pregnancy outcomes. Our mouths are home to a diverse ecosystem containing over 800 different species of microorganisms…and counting! This ecosystem, otherwise known as the oral microbiome, functions symbiotically to support the health and immune response of the rest of the body. Oral health is more than just about having clean teeth.

Fluoride-Free Cleanings

Part of oral health is recognizing how treatments to the mouth can affect the rest of the body and that is why has decided to stop using fluoride in favor of subgingival irrigation and other fluoride-free treatments.

Ultrasonic Technology

In addition to hand scaling, an ultrasonic scaler will be used for adequate removal of bacterial biofilm and calcified tartar deposits on your teeth. This device uses vibrational forces and a steady stream of ozonated water for comfort, efficiency, and control. Our goal is not to disrupt the oral microbiome, but ensure and create balance.

Ozone Therapy

Ozone has powerful antibacterial, antimicrobial, and antifungal properties. In a healthy mouth it can be used for support and prevention, whereas in an unhealthy environment it has potent antimicrobial properties, can reduce inflammation, and bring balance back to the mouth by optimizing the oral flora. Ozone water is administered throughout your dental cleaning and used as a rinse, and ozone oil may be introduced into the gum pockets found in periodontal disease As with all procedures, we assure that we are using only the most biocompatible or “body-friendly” materials during your hygiene visit. Our goal is not to disrupt the oral microbiome, but ensure and create balance. All of our hygiene visits are fluoride free and include safe, alternative options for tooth remineralization.

Dental Sealants

One highly effective preventive measure we offer is dental sealants. These thin, protective coatings are applied to the chewing surfaces of molars and premolars, where deep grooves and crevices often trap food particles and bacteria. Sealants act as a barrier, preventing decay in these vulnerable areas and ensuring your teeth remain strong and cavity-free.
