Maintaining Oral Health

Our highly trained hygienists specialize in periodontal cleanings and maintenance procedures and excel in the early detection of recurrent periodontal issues. At our practice, we believe in a collaborative team approach to deliver the best dental care possible and we prioritize the health and longevity of your gums and dental implants.

Our periodontal cleanings and implant maintenance services are specifically designed to ensure the optimal health and function of your gums and implants.
Periodontal cleanings play a crucial role in preventing and treating gum disease, a common condition that can lead to serious oral health issues if left untreated. Our highly skilled periodontal team will perform a thorough cleaning of your teeth and gums, removing plaque and tartar buildup above and below the gumline. This process helps to eliminate bacteria and toxins that can cause gum inflammation and infection, promoting gum health and preventing further damage.

Implant maintenance is equally important in preserving the health and stability of your dental implants. Our periodontist will carefully evaluate the condition of your implants, assessing the gum and bone support around them. Specialized instruments and techniques are used to clean and polish the implant surfaces, removing any plaque or debris that may have accumulated. This meticulous maintenance helps to prevent peri-implantitis, a condition that can lead to implant failure if left untreated.

Regular periodontal cleanings and implant maintenance appointments are essential for maintaining the health and longevity of your gums and dental implants. By staying proactive and addressing any potential issues early on, we can help you avoid more complex and costly
treatments in the future. Our compassionate periodontal team will provide personalized care and guidance, ensuring your comfort and satisfaction throughout the process.

Our goal is to empower you with the knowledge and tools necessary to maintain excellent gum health and preserve the integrity of your dental implants. If you are in need of periodontal cleanings or implant maintenance, we invite you to schedule an appointment with our experienced periodontist, Dr. Andrew Samuel. Take the proactive step towards achieving and maintaining a healthy smile for years to come.
