A thorough examination is a critical first step when visiting our office. In order to properly diagnose your condition and create a treatment plan, we must spend some time making sure that we understand your oral health and any problems that you have. If you have more complex problems, our team will review the findings of the examination and develop treatment options for your review at a separate visit. Proper diagnosis and treatment planning comes first!
Dental cleanings are routine maintenance, but must be customized to each individual. Some people need merely a check-up and polish. Others require deep cleanings to provide optimal health. We will continue to monitor and adjust your therapy based on your needs.
Fluoride treatment is a great way to protect young teeth from harm and can remineralize some areas of enamel loss in any patient. We may recommend this treatment for maintenance of your teeth.
If you're battling with periodontal disease (gum disease), there are excellent therapies available that can be utilized to halt the progression of the disease. Following your examination, we may prescribe this treatment to treat active infection or chronic bone loss.
