Hygiene

It is very important to see your hygienist regularly.  Hygiene visits are essential for assessing cavities, maintaining healthy gums and extensive dental work, screening for tissue abnormalities and fresh breath.  Did you know that research has demonstrated that gum disease is linked to diabetes, heart attack and premature births?  Did you know that your dentist is often the first health care provider to detect cancers of the mouth, head and neck?
