Cleaning and Prevention

Maintaining your teeth and gums is the foundation of a beautiful and healthy smile. Dr. Williamson has created a practice where personable, caring, gentle, and highly experienced dental hygienists provide a comprehensive approach to overall dental health. Blending innovative technology and a variety of proven services, our hygienists are able to provide unparalleled patient care in a comfortable and inviting atmosphere. Below is a list of the cleaning and prevention services our hygienists perform:

Diagnostic Radiographs

Diagnostic Radiographs (X-Rays)

Radiographs are crucial to detecting decay, tumors, cysts and bone loss. Our office utilizes digital radiographs, which are faster, more comfortable and release a much lower dose of radiation.

Voice Activated Periodontal Probing

Periodontal examination and probing are used to assess the health of your gums and teeth. This screening can help the hygienist and doctor diagnose the gum diseases gingivitis and periodontitis. The hygienist will take measurements of the spaces between your teeth and gums and monitor for gum inflammation or recession at every appointment.

Oral Cancer Screening

Oral Cancer Screening

The doctor and hygienists check thoroughly for any signs of oral cancer on the gum tissue, tongue, lips, cheeks, throat tissue, face and neck area. Your hygienist will be looking for lumps, swelling, discolorations, ulcerations, or any abnormalities.

Removal of Calculus (Tartar)

Calculus is hardened deposits that form above and below the gum line. Calculus cannot be removed with regular brushing and requires special dental instruments.

Removal of Plaque

Removal of Plaque

Plaque is a sticky biofilm deposit that covers the teeth. It is composed of bacteria, saliva and food debris.

Topical Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride is a naturally occurring element that strengthens teeth and helps prevent tooth decay. Fluoride has many positive effects on the teeth. It can help build resistance to acid, protect against sensitivity and strengthen enamel. Your hygienist may recommend a fluoride rinse or varnish during your cleaning visit.

Periodontal disease is a chronic condition, which can be progressive without regular follow-up care. Our hygienists are all experienced periodontal therapists. The Epic Laser can be used in conjunction with conventional treatment to further reduce inflammation within periodontal pockets. Ask your hygienist about early warning signs of periodontitis and prevention.
