Dental Hygiene Care

Your family deserves access to gentle preventive dental care. At Hoppers Crossing Dental, a routine check and clean can help you avoid big dental bills or treatments later.

Dental Hygiene Maintenance

A scale and clean every six months helps you avoid developing gum disease or unwanted bone loss. We will also recommend any modifications to your hygiene routine and screen for soft tissue diseases such as oral cancer.

A thorough examination will allow your dentist to monitor the health of your mouth. X-rays provide us with the ability to see areas between the teeth or under the gumlines that might not otherwise be visible. They’re an essential part of your examination.

The back teeth are especially prone to decay, due to their deep pits and narrow grooves that are too small for your toothbrush to clean. These white “plastic” layers coat the top of the teeth, making them easier to clean and less likely to get cavities.

Fluoridated water is one of the most efficient preventive tools used in reducing cavity rates in our communities. There are also sometimes situations where an extra dose of fluoride may be needed after your scale and clean. If you are prone to cavities or have sensitive teeth, let your Hoppers Crossing dentist know.
