Useful Dental Hygiene Assistance

Our emphasis at Montague Dental Arts is to provide total preventive dental care to every patient. Proper dental care begins with regular hygiene visits, routine checkups, and consistent oral health routines at home. Our top priority is for patients to achieve and maintain their optimum oral health through advances in dental techniques and technology, and by scheduling their regular dental exams.

Our team can also help you to determine if you're developing a gum disease, or exhibiting any common risk factors associated with gum disease. Please visit our gum disease page for more information, or contact our team to schedule your next appointment!

Hygiene Appointments Typically Include:

  • A review or updating of your medical and dental history, including any recent changes in your health or medications
  • Blood pressure check
  • Oral cancer screening and examination
  • An evaluation of your gum tissue
  • X-rays whenever necessary
