Dental Hygiene

Dental hygiene, at its most basic, means to brush, floss, and take care of your teeth and gums. For some it means white, straight teeth that help project confidence. For others, it means no risk of cavities, gum disease, or other issues. For Whitmore Dental, it means all of these things, and more.

Holistic Dental Approach

Studies show a very strong connection between oral health and general dental health. It is important to maintain the best oral health you can, and pay attention to any changes that may occur to your teeth, gums, jaw, or bite. Gum disease carries increase risks far beyond what happens in your mouth. These risks include:

  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Cancer
  • Premature birth
  • Low birth-weight in babies


Dr. Whitmore pays close attention to all aspects of your oral health. Through traditional teeth cleaning and laser hygiene techniques, he and his dental team will clear up and address any concerns found. 

Importance of Bi-Annual Checkups

The key to prevention gingivitis and periodontal disease is early diagnosis. Your in-office teeth cleaning is crucial to keep your teeth and gums healthy. Plaque and tartar build up over time that cannot be removed by brushing and flossing alone, and the dental team will clean your teeth to reduce and eliminate the presence of these things. Your dental hygiene checkup at Whitmore Dental includes a thorough diagnostic exam. 

This includes:

  • Periodontal exam to detect gum disease
  • Bite evaluation
  • Digital x-rays and pictures of your mouth to assess health of your teeth
  • Oral cancer screening
