Preventative Care

Brushing and flossing properly and regular professional dental cleanings, help prevent tooth decay and gum disease.

When you brush and floss every day you remove some of the plaque that is continuously forming on your teeth. The clear, sticky biofilm that is not removed becomes hardened calculus / tartar. Brushing and flossing alone cannot remove tartar.

At Healthy Smiles, we use instruments, skill and patience to remove all of the tartar completely. Ample appointment times and attention to detail are hallmarks of the premium care we deliver. It is critical to remove all of the tartar to prevent periodontal disease, bad breath, and a host of other serious oral and medical problems.

Dental Hygienists are licensed oral health professionals specializing in prevention and treatment of oral diseases. As dentistry’s advanced defensive guards, your coach and trainer in dental care, your dental hygienist will help you find the cleaning tools you are most comfortable with using at home. The best oral care tool for you, is the one you’ll use regularly. Choose between a wide variety of devices, oral irrigators, like Water Pik , electric or sonic toothbrushes, Air Floss, or traditional brushing and flossing.

The main reason for going to the Dentist regularly, usually every six months, is to prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and other disorders that put the health of your teeth and mouth at risk. For those people who are genetically predisposed to periodontal disease or who already have complicated existing oral conditions, more frequent visits are needed.

Our goal is for you to keep all of your teeth for your entire life.

We will keep you smiling.
