Dental care is important to your overall health.
Professional dental hygiene appointments are important for everyone, even for people with the best home care. A dentist or dental hygienist has instruments that a toothbrush cannot reach. Removing plaque and calculus (tartar) will reduce the risk of gum disease that can eventually lead to tooth loss. Dental hygiene is also very important for your overall health. The bacteria found in plaque and calculus can cause infection in the body as well as the mouth. Infection in the teeth or mouth can cause heart disease and contribute to diabetes.
Dr. Bennett and her hygienists take pride in diagnosing and treating each patient as an individual. Every patient is scheduled with enough time based on their specific needs.
