We’re proactive about dental health

Assessment Phase

The foundation of the hygiene visit is the Assessment. During this phase, we:

  • Review your medical and dental history with you.
  • Conduct a free oral cancer screening, since early detection greatly improves the ability to treat oral cancer successfully.
  • Take digital x-rays to check for things we can't see clinically.
  • Perform a Diagnodent scan to check for cavities.
  • Check the health of your gums.
  • Do a caries risk assessment so our recommendations are tailored specifically to you.
  • In addition, your dental hygienist will identify any changes they see in your oral health, and will help you find solutions.

Cleaning Phase 

  • Your dental hygienist will perform a thorough cleaning, removing plaque and hard deposit.

Your 6-month checkups are about more than a polish and a free toothbrush.

In addition to that just-cleaned feeling, staying on top of your regular, 6-month checkups is key to preventing potentially costly and painful oral health problems, such as tooth decay, plaque and hard deposit buildup, and gum disease.

Your dental hygienist is a key member of your health care team, as they’re typically the professional who sees you most often every year. Not only can they help your mouth stay healthy, they can also determine any early signs of oral or overall health issues.
