When a strong oral hygiene routine is established, not only are you greatly helping maintain healthy teeth and gums, you are also contributing to long-lasting dental function and beauty.

Our team begins treatment with a detailed, yet gentle inspection of your current dental state, checking for everything regarding the health of your smile. From examining for soft-tissue abnormalities to conducting oral cancer screenings, the dental well-being of you and your loved ones is our top priority.

With the use of intraoral cameras and radiographic imaging, we can provide every patient with accurate pictures of their dental environments as well as show you firsthand our possible findings.
Your routine appointment will also involve essential professional cleanings to help remove any plaque buildup on your teeth, which in turn, can help further prevent against decay. Neglection of these preventive measures can contribute towards to the development of oral health complications and are typically the leading cause of advanced tooth decay and periodontal disease. Once dental plaque hardens into tartar, this calculus is almost impossible to properly remove with at-home care. Dr. Summers and her team have the training and knowledge to address these concerns using an in-depth, yet compassionate approach.
During cleanings, we can also provide fluoride treatments, which helps strengthen tooth enamel, protecting against decay. We also keep a sharp eye out for potential periodontal pockets, where gum tissue has been separated from teeth due to an overabundance of harmful plaque build-up. If it determined that gum disease is present, more advanced treatments such as scaling and root planing will be recommended.
