In addition to the meticulous cleaning, polishing, and examination of your teeth, we also take the time to help our patients develop proper oral hygiene habits at home.  We will evaluate your hygiene techniques and make adjustments to your routine where needed.  Our doctors and hygienists will also make suggestions for preventative measures such as dental sealants or nightguards to protect against bruxism & TMJ.

 

If we feel that you are suffering from gingivitis or more severe gum disease, we may recommend a root scaling or planing.  These measures can be instrumental in preventing bone loss and helping you to keep your natural teeth.

 

Oral Cancer Screenings

 

During a dental exam, the doctor will check your neck and oral tissues for lumps, red or white patches or recurring sore areas.

Screening for early changes in the oral tissue can help detect cancer at a stage when it can be more successfully treated.

 

Smoking, especially combined with heavy alcohol consumption (30 drinks a week or more), is the primary risk factor for oral cancer.  In fact, this combination is estimated to be the most likely trigger in about 75 percent of oral cancers diagnosed in this country. Other lifestyle and environmental factors also may increase your risk of developing oral cancer.

 

Scaling & Root Planing

 

Scaling and root planing is a non-surgical procedure in which the periodontist removes plaque and tartar from below the gum line. Root surfaces are cleaned and smoothed with specially designed instruments. It is important to remove the plaque and tartar from the pockets, because aside from the bacterial toxins that irritate the gums, plaque and the rough surfaces of tartar make it easier for bacteria to gain a foothold.

 

Sealants

Sealants are used to fill in the grooves of back teeth to protect the chewing surfaces from germs that cause decay

Testimonials

I have been a patient for over 20 years. Service has always been great, from routine cleanings to meetings with Dr. Borrowdale. He seems to keep his office updated with latest technology, including digital imaging and crown install.

Always on time and very courteous.
