Dr. Masek and our Hygienist believe strongly in taking a preventative approach to dental care. Promoting health through preventative and routine hygiene care is the heart of our practice. More than just "cleaning", these visits allow us to monitor your health and catch potential problems early.
Our Registered Dental Hygienist brings over 30 years of care and experience to afford you the best in periodontal treatment tailored to your individual needs. Periodontal Disease affects more than 80% or more of adults and is a growing epidemic in our society. Understanding of Periodontal Disease has increased greatly over the last few years. We now know that Periodontal Disease is a bacterial infection that affects supporting gum tissue and bone around the teeth. Keeping your teeth clean is a vital part of your overall health. Our Hygienist understands this and will assist you to prefect your home care and is available for professional recall visits every 3, 4 or 6 months.
Our Hygienist provides three types of "cleanings" for our patients. Unfortunately, not everyone follows the recommended recall schedules and may find themselves in need of more advanced periodontal care. Dr. Masek will recommend what type of care you require, then the Hygienist will provide the specific procedure and recommend your individual recall schedule.
