We know that preventative care is essential to your dental health, we will put together a detailed plan of action both for in office and home care. There are multi level types of teeth and gum procedures, ranging from simple teeth maintenance to detailed periodontal therapy. Our office works with you to create the most effective oral hygiene program for your individualized needs. We will ensure that after your visit with us you are fully aware of your oral status.


Scaling and root planing is an extension of a routine hygiene maintenance appointment. If we recommend scaling and root planing for our patients then it is evident that you have more build up and inflammation that is done in our routine cleanings. This appointment may require anesthesia to keep you comfortable and it may require anywhere from 2-5 appointments depending on the severity of your condition. We not only use hand instruments but incorporate an ultrasonic scaler as well.


Periodontal maintenance is a cleaning procedure performed to thoroughly clean the teeth.   Periodontal disease and gingivitis occur when bacteria from plaque colonize on the gingival (gum) tissue, either above or below the gum line.  These bacteria colonies cause serious inflammation and irritation which in turn produce a chronic inflammatory response in the body.  As a result, the body begins to systematically destroy gum and bone tissue, making the teeth shift, become unstable, or completely fall out.


We recommend our patients have their teeth cleaned anywhere from 2-4 times a year. Our routine maintenance procedures include periodontal probing which along with x-rays and an exam will help determine the health of your tissues. A routine maintenance removes plaque and light calculus from your teeth and underneath your gums. Both hand and ultrasonic instruments may be used for this procedure, which is followed by polishing the teeth.
