Creating Beautiful Smiles

Hygiene and Ozone Periodontal Therapy Programs

Evaluations of your gums, teeth, and bone are vital to maintaining a healthy smile. Unfortunately, statistics show that 80 percent of people will experience some form of periodontal disease in their lifetime, and the vast majority of this inflammation is not properly treated. When this lack of treatment occurs, patients are faced with bleeding gums, bone loss, and tooth loss, which can lead to a greater risk of damage to the arteries, heart, and brain. At IE Dental, our team of hygienists is dedicated to ensuring that our patients achieve and keep healthy gums and teeth by focusing on the overall health and wellness of the patient.

Benefits of Hygiene and Ozone Periodontal Therapy Programs

Gum and Periodontal Evaluation

Gum and Periodontal Evaluation

Your hygienist at IE Dental will evaluate your periodontal tissue with bacterial genetic DNA testing that identifies the types and quantity of bacteria present in your saliva. This testing allows your hygienist to create a hand-tailored plan to maintain your optimal oral hygiene.

Enamel Evaluation and Treatment

Enamel Evaluation and Treatment

Your dental hygienist will evaluate your enamel and provide recommendations for preventative products and dietary changes to help maintain optimal pH balance and prevent tooth decay. If needed, one or more of our available treatments may be recommended to obtain and maintain optimal oral health.

Oral Cancer Screenings

Oral Cancer Screenings

Routine oral cancer screenings are performed during your visit with one of our dental hygienists. These screenings are performed with VELscope® VX technology. This fluorescent light system allows your hygienist to view and examine the tissues in the oral cavity, which allows for early detection and, therefore, early treatment of oral cancer.

Available Treatments

Periodontal Deep Cleanings

Deep cleanings performed by a dental hygienist remove dangerous plaque, calculus (tartar), and biofilm from the tooth surface. Dr. Tomazin and his team of dental hygienists offer both ultrasonic scalings as well as hand-held instrumentation to remove gum disease-causing plaque and calculus.

Enamel Treatment

Dr. Tomazin and his team of dental hygienists offer fluoride-free xylitol tooth polish treatments to protect tooth enamel and prevent decay by maintaining the pH balance of the saliva. This polish helps to prevent cavities, dry mouth, bad breath, sensitive teeth, and decay.

Ozone Periodontal Therapy Programs

Ozone therapy treats gum disease by destroying bacteria colonies in infected pockets with activated oxygen. Activated oxygen causes the cell walls of a pathogen (such as bacteria, viruses, or fungal infections) to rupture. This event leads to the destruction of the pathogen and is, therefore, an effective treatment for gum disease, cavities, and tooth decay.

I’m extremely impressed with the comfort, atmosphere, friendliness and professionalism shown here and I truly think more dentists and businesses in general should strive to be like this. I wish I had found them sooner.”

Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I see my dental hygienist?
Proper oral maintenance includes routine appoints with a dental hygienist. You should see a dental hygienist twice a year (or more frequently if you have a history of periodontal disease).
Are brushing and flossing enough to maintain my oral health?
Routine brushing and flossing are vital to not only your oral health but your overall health. Unfortunately, while brushing and flossing help to prevent the formation of cavities and gum disease, they are not always enough to rid your mouth of the dangerous bacterias that can form there. In addition to brushing and flossing, deep cleanings are necessary to maintaining your oral health.
How does ozone gas destroy bacteria?
During an oxygen-ozone treatment, ozone gas is applied to the diseased pocket and gum tissue. This damaged tissue absorbs the gas, which causes the bacterial colonies present to die.
What does a hygiene appointment entail?
Your hygiene appointment will be hand-tailored to fit your individual needs. Evaluations of your gum and enamel will allow your hygienist to identify any potential threat to your oral health as well as create an at-home oral care plan for you.
