We are committed to your oral health so you can enjoy a beautiful smile for years to come!
At Eastern Hills Dental, we believe that preventative dental care is best for your oral health. Regular cleanings help to prevent damage to your teeth and surrounding structures as well as keep your smile bright. Our hygienists regularly perform assessments to gauge the health of your mouth, perform cleanings that are catered to your specific needs, create a tailored recare schedule, and recommend products that will help keep your teeth and gums in the best shape possible.
Our comprehensive exams consist of an oral cancer screening, evaluation of your gum and bone health, and examining your teeth for cavities and other potential dental needs.
We use the latest technology in digital x-rays which require just a fraction of radiation as compared to traditional x-rays, and are only taken as necessary based on our assessment of your dental health and the recommendations of the American Dental Association. Many dental conditions start out painless and require x-rays to diagnose early before they become a bigger issue or cause pain. Without regular x-rays, we are unable to have a complete picture of your dental health.
Occasionally a deeper cleaning may be required for optimum dental health. Periodontal disease, or gum disease, affects the structures which hold the tooth into place and a deeper cleaning rids the pocket around the tooth of harmful bacteria that worsens the condition. These cleanings usually require anesthetic for patient comfort and therefore are only performed one side of the mouth at a time. At the end of the cleaning, the hygienist will apply medicine under the gums and schedule you back for a tissue check and more frequent cleanings throughout the year to maintain tissue health.
