Hygiene / Periodontal Treatment
While at our office, we ensure that you receive the highest level of service and that our dental work is of the highest quality. To maintain great oral health, we strive to extend this level of quality to your personal oral hygiene routine. We can help you establish a dental hygiene routine that will keep your teeth healthy and white. Your teeth are not the only important part of your mouth, your gums are essential to oral hygiene as well. We can provide periodontal cleanings and treatment or refer you to one of our recommended specialists.
If you have any questions about your current hygiene plan please ask us.
Oral Cancer screenings
Oral cancer screenings are a very important part of dental visits for the patient. With the advances in modern technology, we are now able to pinpoint the start of a potential problem much earlier in its evolution. The ability to do so is extremely important in being able to treat any issues prior to them becoming a major irreversible problem.
The oral cancer screening is often completed with an ultraviolet light or similar device that allows us to view issues that can't always be detected by the human eye under normal conditions.
Certain lifestyle choices can have a great impact on the health of tissues and your overall health in the mouth. If you are a smoker or heavy drinker, make sure to get regular screenings when you visit the dentist.
Scaling and Root Planing
Often there is plaque and tartar that accumulates below the gum line. In this scenario, we will clean and smooth this area with special instruments to ensure that the area is completely spotless. If your teeth and gums are not kept clean, the entire area can become irritated with the bacteria that reside in the tartar and plaque. It is very important to have Dr.Rogosin check the area if you have bleeding during brushing.
