Maintain Great Oral Health
One of the most important things you can do for yourself and your overall well-being is to maintain the healthy condition of your teeth and gums. You may not know it, but your oral health is directly related to your overall health. By keeping your smile in its optimum condition, you’ll be setting yourself up for the best possible chance at a long, healthy life.
Dr. Walker and our hygiene team put a lot of emphasis on each dental hygiene appointment. Every appointment is performed with a thorough evaluation and a focus on preventative care. This includes a discussion about your dental history, a full mouth exam, a Diagnodent exam to check for any early signs of decay, panoramic and bitewing x-rays, muscle palpation (to ensure your bite is in its proper position), and a Velscope oral cancer screening.
Give Us the Chance to Keep You Healthier Than Ever!
Hygiene appointments give our team the opportunity to catch and treat any possible oral health issues in their earliest stages. Conditions such as periodontal disease and tooth loss have been directly related to serious health problems, such as heart disease, stroke, and even certain cancers.
Maintaining your recall appointments every six months is the best way to treat and prevent oral health issues from becoming severe and unmanageable. Our dentist and hygienist will also explain what you can do to improve your own hygiene habits at home.
Always a great experience at this office. I haven't had a new cavity in the 5+ years I have been going here. Dr. Walker and staff are very kid friendly. My teeth never hurt after a cleaning which has happened at other dental offices. Highly recommend.
