When you come to our clinic for dental cleanings and other services, you won’t walk out with a large bill because our services don’t include those expensive dental treatments.  If our experienced hygienist feels that you need further work, she will make a recommendation for you to see a Dentist.

Regular dental cleanings are the only way to remove tartar or hard deposits from your teeth, which helps to prevent gum disease. When our hygienist polishes your teeth it not only makes them look and feel better, it smoothes and polishes tooth surfaces so they are less likely to accumulate plaque.

Preventive Dentistry aims to reduce the required dental restorations in your lifetime by minimizing  your risk of developing tooth decay and gum disease.

Mastering the art of good dental hygiene is a fundamental component of Preventive Dentistry care.

Top Tips for Brushing Teeth:

  • Brush your teeth at least twice per day (after breakfast and after dinner).
  • Brush with a soft round bristle toothbrush.
  • Place your toothbrush where the gum meets the tooth, at a 45degree angle (enabling you to clean under the gum line). Bacteria accumulate along the tooth at the gum line, so it is essential to focus on this area.
  • Brush your gums very gently. (The correct brushing motion is a circular massaging technique along the gum line rather than vigorous brushing back and forth. Vigorous brushing can injure your gums.)
  • Use a tongue scraper to clean your tongue which will remove additional bacteria and freshen your breath.
  • Replace your toothbrush every three to four months or after an illness, whichever comes first.

The Importance of Flossing Your Teeth:

It is essential to floss your teeth at least once each day for optimal dental health. When you brush teeth, you are removing plaque from the surface of your teeth...

 

Testimonials

"I started taking my dental care very seriously in 1985. Losing a tooth,due to a car accident, woke me up to how important the condition of my mouth is , and how it affects the rest of my health. Old news now,but was a mystery to me then. As a result,I became a fanatic about my dental hygiene,and have been very particular about who was in charge of taking care of my teeth. I have been very fortunate in that regard,and have known a couple of excellent hygienists. However,none have been as conscientious,sincerely caring,and professional,as Ms.Sutton. I am so lucky to have her as my dental health expert. I know I cant be the only patient of Absolute Health,to be as grateful as I,and will continue to be in her caring hands. I will give recommendations for her,to anyone I can. Thank you so much.

Routine Cleanings

Every 3 months I have my teeth cleaned by Tammy Sutton RDH, EP at Absolute Health Medical Center.  My experiences have been so positive that I want to tell you about it.  First, Tammy has great expertise.  She has the most up-to-date equipment,  and I have found that she knows what is needed to make my mouth be healthy and feel good.  My teeth are also whiter than they were before I started going to Tammy.  Additionally, she is an upbeat person and provides that little bit of inspiration to enjoy your day regardless of what came before or will occur after.  All of those things together would be more than enough to keep me happy and—oh yes, the prices are very reasonable—but there is more.  As part of the services at Absolute Health Medical Center, each time I get my teeth cleaned, for no additional charge, I am entitled to a neck warmer, immediate glass of water, warm hand parafin treatment and one hour in the private beautiful dry sauna. (These amenities are optional, not required, but are kindly offered.)  For me, the day is like a trip to the spa.  I’ve gone to get my teeth cleaned—which I did indeed do—and I leave feeling relaxed and so content.  Thanks Tammy and Absolute Health Medical Center!
