A thorough regular cleaning by our skilled hygienist is an integral part of preventing oral disease in our Connecticut dental office. Our hygienist performs a comprehensive evaluation of your tooth and gum health which includes screening for cavities, gum disease, oral cancer
, and overall oral healthcare. Your oral inspection is followed by meticulous plaque removal and cleaning above and below the gum line.
A high-tech laser instrument called the Canary
helps detect cavities that might otherwise go undetected. Furthermore, as part of your hygiene experience at Whole-Body Dentistry, we provide a thorough periodontal inspection which includes a gentle probing for pockets and microscopic periodontal inspection, which is rarely offered at other dental practices. Taking a plaque sample and looking at it under a microscope is critical to evaluating the patient’s periodontal health and to monitor ongoing systemic and local treatment. This inspection tells us about periodontal infections. S
tudies show that patients with periodontal disease have higher incidence of heart attack, stroke, and low birth-weight babies. Often this sort of gum inspection can clue us into the patient’s overall health.
