Dental Hygiene

Proper Dental Hygiene (Cleanings) are instrumental in maintaining healthy teeth and gums. Let Dr. Councill and his staff help you maintain your smile for years to come!

ingivitis is one of the most preventable forms of disease.   We are inundated with commercials of products that can help us eliminate decay, halitosis (bad breath) and the dreaded gingivitis.  But, none of these products will work adequately in an environment that has been "overun" with years of calculus build-up and/or neglect. Daily brushing and flossing are critical to both gum and tooth health.


Research between systemic diseases and periodontal diseases is ongoing. While a link is not conclusive, some studies indicate that severe gum disease may be associated with several other health conditions such as diabetes or stroke. - ADA
