Your first visit to our office establishes a vital foundation for our relationship with you. During the first visit, we make sure to obtain important information like your dental and medical histories and give you time to get to know Dr. Herlihy. Our dental hygiene program is designed to help prevent new cavities, preserve teeth that have been restored, and manage periodontal (gum) disease. At the initial visit with us, we will do much more than merely clean your teeth and gums. Dr. Herlihy will perform a complete oral examination which includes an oral cancer screening, periodontal (gum) evaluation, and an analysis of your occlusion (bite). This ensures a thorough examination of your teeth, their supporting structures, and of the oral anatomy. Routine teeth cleanings in Brockton and dental care is an incredibly effective method in preventing future dental problems, such as gum disease. There are many different varieties of periodontal disease, and many ways in which these variations manifest themselves. Gingivitis is among the most common. However, all forms of gum disease require immediate treatment by their dentist to halt the progression and save the gum tissue and bone. Our patients are grateful for Dr. Herlihy for aiding them in achieving the best tooth and gum health possible.
Natural teeth, teeth with restorations, and the gum tissue that surrounds these teeth survive best in an oral environment that is clean and where proper oral hygiene is maintained. Therefore, it is vital that you visit Dr. Herlihy routinely for teeth cleanings in Brockton. We recommend visiting our dentist every six months to maintain proper form, function, health, and beauty of your teeth, gums, and mouth.
