Regular visits to our office are important in preventing / managing gum disease and in detecting dental decay early. Even with proper home care, unwanted plaque and tartar still accumulate. For healthy teeth and gums, a dental examination and professional cleaning are recommended every 6 months. For those managing a hereditary or acquired periodontal condition, professional cleanings are needed more often. Dr. Brueggeman or Dr. Kopecky will establish a recare protocol for you based on your dental needs. Our hygienists are skilled and experienced and will help you to maintain a strong program for your optimum gum health.
