SCARSDENTALGROUP_AR13

Our hygienists have extensive training and experience in providing therapeutic and educational dental services. Having years of experience and a commitment to excellence they provide a superior service to our patients.

Valerie Jacobs & NormaRoutine periodontal maintenance visits include; oral cancer screenings, periodontal maintenance (cleaning), Necessary radiographs, Pocket Chartings, Oral hygiene instructions and a clinical exam. They will also instruct you on proper toothbrush care, flossing, water irrigation, and several other techniques for you to practice at home. Patients who are periodontally healthy (without gum pocketing, bleeding, bone loss or heavy tartar accumulation) generally receive a periodic prophylaxis cleaning and polishing.

Should signs of excessive plaque or tartar be identified, additional cleaning may be recommended. If excessive probing depths or signs of periodontal disease be present, then deep cleaning (root planning), usually by quadrant may be recommended. This more extensive treatment may help patients return to periodontal health and often eliminates the need for referral for periodontal surgery.

Digital radiography enhances our ability to detect tooth decay (cavities), bone loss and infections that can’t be seen through routine intra-oral exams. Our hygienists look forward to a long healthy relationship with you and your family. It is our belief that regular prophylaxis cleaning and maintenance visits will promote optimum dental health, function and appearance, and will aid in early detection and prevention of more serious dental problem.
