Dental Hygiene

At Furniss Family Dentistry, our focus is on providing you with quality, comfortable care. Our wonderful hygienists are happy to do all they can to make your visit pain free, thorough, and enjoyable. To ensure that you maintain great oral health, this level of quality needs to extend into your personal oral hygiene routine. We can help you establish a dental hygiene routine that will keep your teeth healthy and white. If you have any questions about your current hygiene plan please ask us, we are happy to tailor your plan to your needs.

In addition to healthy teeth, your gums need to be healthy in order to have a healthy mouth. Healthy gums are pink and do not bleed easily. If your gums are red, sore, or bleed easily you may have gingivitis, or a more advanced disease state called periodontitis.  We are able to provide periodontal cleanings, scaling and root planning, full mouth debridement, and even laser periodontal therapy right here in our office! For very advanced cases we may refer you to one of our recommended specialists. Dr. Furniss will determine what treatment is best for you at your exam appointment and make appropriate recommendations.
