Oral Hygiene

Elmwood Dental Center's hygienists will help keep your smile healthy & bright

Our highly experienced hygienists are here to provide you with quality, preventative dental care.

They can remove calculus, stains, and plaque from your teeth, teach you how to practice good oral hygiene, and provide other preventive dental care.

They can also plane the root of a tooth until it is smooth. This eliminates any rough calculus deposits on the root which can provide breeding grounds for bacteria. As needed, they can apply cavity-preventive agents such as fluorides and pit and fissure sealants.

Our hygienists also help our patients develop and maintain good oral health. For example, they may explain the relationship between diet and oral health or inform patients how to select toothbrushes and show them how to brush and floss their teeth.

Contact us today to schedule an appointment with one of our hygienists. Regular preventative care is essential in maintaining strong, healthy, attractive teeth.
