Preventive care is the cornerstone of oral health!
Did you know
Dr. Westfall was a dental hygienist before she became a dentist? We know that your periodontal (gum and bone) health is so important for chewing, speaking and affecting tooth position (“shifting”).
The Smile Shop’s skilled and gentle dental hygienists provide preventive and “deep” cleanings. What to expect at your dental cleaning visit:
- The dental hygienist will measure your gum health and discuss your condition with you
- Sensitivity or discomfort is addressed, and a plan for selective numbing or using “numbing gel” is made with you
- The dental hygienist might recommend a special toothpaste or mouthrinse to help with healing or sensitivity
- The dental hygienist will recommend the timeline of your next cleaning
