Approximately 90 percent of the population will experience gum disease, and it is the most common cause of tooth loss in the western world. Your hygiene appointment is designed to evaluate your oral health, any existing gum disease is treated, and then most importantly, measures are put in place to prevent any further deterioration and maintain your oral health. You, the patient and our dental team work together on a maintenance strategy to prevent the repeated incidence of gum disease. The frequency of maintenance appointments with the dental team will depend upon the individual.
We try to make the experience as pain-free and fun (yes even going to the dentist can be fun!) as possible.
