Cleanings and Prevention
A good preventive dental program is a cooperative effort between the patient, dentist and hygienist to preserve the natural dentition and supporting structures by preventing dental and periodontal disease before it starts. Our office personalizes your preventive program based on factors such as home care, past periodontal disease and medical history. Prevention includes regular exams and cleanings, x-rays, fluoride treatments and sealants.

Periodontal Therapy
Periodontal therapy or Active therapy is the treatment for periodontal disease. The purpose is to stop the bone loss and infections associated with the active disease process. The treatment can consist of scaling and root planning by the dental hygienist, antibiotic and antimicrobial therapies, and improved home care techniques.
