The Healthy Mouth

A Preventive Dental Practice

Why three month cleanings?  It is quite simple, it is all about the bacteria.  What kind and how many.  Research has shown that gum health can be maintained  by adequately cleaning  your teeth at home,  having your teeth professionally cleaned in our office, and monitoring the bacteria on a three month basis.

Microscopic examination of the plaque on the teeth is an important element of each cleaning visit.

A BANA exam is an in house diagnostic test that can be used to evaluate the  presence of specific disease causing bacteria.
