Most of the conditions that negatively affect your smile can be avoided with regular care. Your team at Opelika Dental is committed to answering your questions about proper hygiene and providing you with the most advanced preventive dentistry.

Preventive Care
During your regular hygiene visits, your hygienist will remove plaque (soft deposits), tartar or calculus (hard deposits), and stain from your teeth. She will also evaluate your gum tissue and bone level by taking probing depths or pocket measurements. After the cleaning, the hygienist will floss and polish your teeth to a beautiful shine.

Additionally, you will have all your questions answered about your homecare procedures and products. If you have trouble choosing the right toothbrush or flossing effectively, your hygienist can help. Should you develop gum disease, our hygienist will provide counsel and treatment to control the condition.

It will be important for you to work with the dental hygienist so that you can achieve optimal oral health. This will mean working together through homecare or co-therapy to keep your teeth for your lifetime. It is a commitment from you, the patient, to do your best at home and a commitment from your hygienist to provide the best treatment possible during your hygiene appointments.
