Your overall health is our #1 priority
There is an overwhelming amount of research showing the link between oral health and systemic health. Our Kerrville hygiene team is your first line of defense when it comes to prevention of oral disease. Gum disease and dental caries (cavity) screenings should be part of your regular health routine like eating right and exercising.
Infections in the mouth can cause expensive damage to the teeth and soft tissues; preventive appointments and home care can reduce your risk. Also, infections like gum disease and tooth decay can contribute to or amplify systemic medical issues like diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.
Let our gentle & skilled team take care of you
The hygiene team will walk you through each step of your evaluation to make sure you are informed and comfortable. You will be asked to share any concerns or changes you may have noticed, such as tooth discoloration, bad breath, and sensitivity to hot and cold or bleeding during brushing or flossing. The team will then go over the things that are relevant to you, including:
- Review of health history (medication use, changes in systemic health, etc.)
- Gum disease assessment
- Check of existing restorations
- Home care routine review and education (brushing and flossing)
- Cavity detection
- Address any other concerns you or the doctor may have
