My name is Ashley Jenkins and I am the Dental Hygienist at the office of Dr. Amanda Canto. So when you first come to our office and come to see me I will be taking an assessment of your gums. I will be doing what we call a perio chart and taking numbers and measurements of your gums to see what kind of cleaning would be best for you. We also take X-Rays and we also take Intraoral Pictures… and we also do a Oral Cancer Screening. The best way to be taking care of your teeth at home is by using an electric tooth brush. We recommend the sonicare…we also recommend oral care mouth rinse… and we also recommend flossing twice a day. If you follow these three recommendations your home care will improve and so will the health of your gums. And this will also help to prevent Periodontal Disease. Or if you have Periodontal Disease…keep it stable. Because we are committed to taking the best care of you.
