Preventative care is the building block of long-term dental health. Being diligent in your dental care not only means a beautiful smile but less time in the dental chair for unwanted procedures such as fillings and crowns.
Before graduating from dental school, Dr. Holliday started her dental career as a dental hygienist, so this area of dentistry is something she is just as passionate about and takes much pride in.
Not only will our dental office deliver you pearly whites in the office, we will also work with you and your family on the proper techniques to maintain your oral health at home.
We provide dental cleanings and examinations to patients throughout Palm Beach. We believe that preventative care is essential for staying in good oral health. Our goal is to keep our patients as healthy as possible. The best way to do so is through ongoing dental care and teaching our patients how to practice good oral hygiene at home.
Think of “deep scaling” as a deep cleaning. During routine dental check-ups, hygienists typically clean teeth up to the gum line. In deep scaling, a dentist or hygienist removes plaque and tartar on teeth below the gum line from the pocket area between the teeth and gums that forms when inflammation is present. The gum tissue is gently pushed back.
At our office, we offer professional fluoride treatments for children, who are often at higher risk for cavities as their teeth grow & develop & they learn good oral hygiene habits. We recommend fluoride as a preventive treatment for children. Fluoride treatments are usually done at six-month cleaning appointments.
