The secret of a healthy oral cavity and stress-free dental appointments is your hygiene visit. This is our way of keeping an eye on your teeth and oral tissues, and if anything develops between routine checkups, we are on top of it, making sure we have very little work to do since we are catching problems as soon as they become evident.

Depending on the results of your soft tissues and gums assessment, we determine if you would benefit from having a deep cleaning and if you have or are at risk for developing periodontal disease. In our office, this is a stress- and pain-free procedure. We always make sure you are comfortable and understand the importance of each procedure we are doing. Deep cleanings help with tender, swollen and bleeding gums, bad breath, teeth that are losing bone around them therefore becoming loose, and gingival recession, among other benefits. Rest assured that if you need to see a periodontist (the gums and bone specialist), you can do it here at Forma Dental — Modern Dental Aesthetics. Our periodontist will be happy to schedule an appointment with you.
