Hygiene

At Elliott Bay Dental, we’re passionate about preventive care. Our treatments in dental hygiene for Seattle patients include more than a thorough cleaning – they focus on careful diagnosis of everything related to your oral health.

Healthy teeth and gums are an extremely valuable possession! Good oral health can increase our enjoyment of life and even boost our personal confidence. With benefits like these, doesn’t it make sense to preserve and protect our precious teeth?

What will my hygiene visit include?

Your biannual appointment begins with a personal visit from Dr. Kim or Dr. Cervantes-Kim. They will carefully analyze the health of your teeth, gums, and jaws, as well as ask about any dental issues you’ve been experiencing. These issues may include:

  • Tooth pain
  • Tooth sensitivity to heat or cold
  • Bleeding gums
  • Gum recession
  • Dry mouth

Using digital x-rays and other state-of-the-art diagnostic tools, we’ll get to the underlying causes of your tooth issues. Our intra-oral camera will display any trouble-spots we’ve found, making you an active partner in your treatment. At times, we’ll consult with one of our in-house specialists, ensuring you receive the most accurate diagnosis possible.

Using quiet and gentle ultra-sonic tools, one of our skilled hygienists will carefully clean your teeth while you enjoy a movie or favorite TV show. Afterward, we’ll take the time to speak with you about your personal oral-health routine. Our suggestions can assist you in preserving your beautiful smile for years to come.

Preserve your precious smile!

The keys to life-long oral health are early diagnosis of potential problems and great dental hygiene. Seattle dentists Drs. Kim and Cervantes-Kim are pleased to offer you the expert diagnostic and preventive dental care you deserve. Schedule your next hygiene visit with Elliott Bay Dental today!
