Our General and Family Dentistry Services
When it comes to maintaining a healthy, beautiful smile for life, prevention is key. We want to provide you and your loved ones with the support you need to feel confident about your oral health, and we accomplish that through attentive check-ups, preventive measures, and comfortable, friendly care. Our general and family services include the following:
Check-Ups & Hygiene
We recommend that patients attend an in-depth evaluation and cleaning at our office every three to six months, or twice each year. These appointments allow Dr. Heather Martinson and her team to closely inspect your teeth, gums, jaw, and other areas of your mouth for any signs of discomfort or damage. Better yet, digital X-rays will help us create a picture of your oral health that is as thorough and precise as possible. Then, if necessary, we can recommend a treatment plan that is customized to fit your unique needs. Following your check-up, you will undergo a cleaning with one of our trusted hygienists so that we can remove stubborn plaque and tartar, leaving you with a smile that looks polished and feels refreshed.
Keeping Your Teeth Healthy for Life!
Regular teeth cleanings and proper at-home care are two of the best guarantees for strong, healthy teeth that will last you a lifetime. Dr. Martinson and her team use modern tools and techniques to keep your teeth sparkling and your gums healthy. Regular cleanings help identify potential problems and allow us to treat them before they get worse.
Comfortable, Thorough Dental Cleanings
Our friendly, competent hygienists are highly experienced when it comes to patient care and comfortable, thorough teeth cleanings. They use advanced equipment to achieve great results, including the Prophy Jet, an air-polishing device for heavy plaque and stain removal. The Prophy Jet combines air, water and baking soda to gently blast away bacteria and debris, leaving teeth sparkling and squeaky clean.
Education on home oral care
Your hygienist will educate you on how to best take care of your teeth at home between visits.
Proper at-home care is vital for keeping teeth and gums healthy and functioning. For that reason, our friendly, caring hygienists will take the time to educate you on best oral hygiene practices. They will use a combination of teaching aids—displays, literature and models—to show you the proper techniques and coach you into being able to perform them well. We like to think of ourselves as your partners in the maintenance of your oral health.
