Oral Hygiene

Dental hygiene or oral hygiene means maintenance of the mouth, teeth and gums. Oral hygiene is made up of at-home daily maintenance and regular visits to your dentist. The daily brushing and flossing you do at home combined with the professional cleanings provided by your dentist and dental hygienist will ensure you keep your natural teeth for a life time.

The Dental Hygiene process...

No matter how thorough an at-home brushing and flossing routine may be, calculus will build up on the teeth over time. As calculus builds below the gum line, bacteria eventually invade the area with the potential to create a host of dental problems. A dental hygienist is trained to eliminate this calculus buildup and eliminate this threat to ones health.

Dental hygienists are specialists at scraping away the hard plaque and removing calculus deposits. They also take X-rays and look for changes to the patient’s bite.

When the hygienist is done cleaning, the dentist will conduct further examination of the gums and mouth for signs of tooth decay or gum disease. The American Dental Association suggests patients schedule a visit to the dentist and dental hygienist twice a year to guarantee good oral hygiene.

Our Happy Customers

"I have had two procedures done by Dr. Sprague. The first was about a year ago and I had a root canal and new crown done all in the same visit. He was very competent, affordable, fast and caring."

Maya

"He really is a wonderful dentist. I have been plagued with dental problems always and he made me feel so at ease, everyone there is great. I had extensive dental work done and he was great as were his prices. He is very gentle and thoughtful and even called to see how I was doing afterwards. And he is easily accessible in a dental emergency, which is a huge deal. He makes the experience as pleasant as it can be, if you need proof see me laughing in the dentist chair in the video by Yelp on his website...I was about to have a tooth extraction and a bone graft. He's awesome!"
