Some visits will include x-rays to help diagnose conditions or probing (measuring) of the gum tissue around the teeth to ascertain your periodontal health.
Additional hygiene procedures offered include:

- Sensitive Teeth
- Periodontal (Gum disease) treatment when needed – also known as a “Deep Cleaning”, which is only necessary in select cases where significant build-up exists below the gumline.
