Healthy Gums

Our hygienists are both thorough and gentle and they are the best in the business! Dr. Allen and Dr. Holm have empowered them to fully utilize all their skills to offer you top-of the line prevention and early diagnosis that will keep you OUT of the dental chair in the future! For example, you would be amazed at the number of dental practices where gum disease is simply overlooked because the hygienists are forced to work under a high-volume schedule and not encouraged to codiagnose gum disease at its insidious early stages. Many adults are totally unaware that they too can benefit from sealants and fluoride instead of waiting for a cavity to appear- no one has ever told them! We are proud that we do not maintain our patients in a diseased state or wait for problems to surface. Our hygienists help you through the maze of dental products out there so you don't waste your time and money on anything that is not right for you. We can help you create a custom preventive maintenance routine based on your own individual dental findings and circumstances to keep your teeth and gums healthy. If you have gum problems, we offer both non-surgical gum therapies and the latest in technologies, like locally-applied topical antibiotics, power toothbrushes, antimicrobial mouth rinses, prescription tooth pastes, and even nutriceuticals. We also offer treatment for cold sores and mouth ulcers and other oral problems. Thousand of studies have proven the link between gum disease and heart disease, diabetes, pneumonia, and even cancer. Your gum health is crucial to your over-all health and our hygienists are here to help you!

Dr. Allen and Dr. Holm use the latest techniques to create and maintain beautiful and healthy smiles. We are pleased to offer our patients the following services in a friendly and comfortable environment.
