Dr. Kate Brayman and her staff remind every patient that good dental hygiene is the key to healthy teeth and gums and preventing dental problems.

Taking care of one’s teeth and gums is the cornerstone of a healthy mouth and an attractive smile. Not only essential for eating but dental hygiene or oral hygiene also affects speech clarity; poor oral health can even lead to much more severe issues if left unaddressed. Therefore, one must give diligent attention to teeth and gums to maintain optimal overall wellness.
Regular dental hygiene practices are a must to keep your smile in its happiest and healthiest shape. It takes a few simple steps:
Brushing your teeth is essential for maintaining oral hygiene – and how you do it matters. Are you doing it correctly? Light brushing won’t get the job done, but brushing too hard could damage the gum. For best results, take 2-3 minutes of proper scrubbing with short strokes and ensure you reach each tooth surface thoroughly. Our dental hygienists will provide insight into appropriate techniques during your next visit.
When you visit the dentist, the first person you’ll see is a dental hygienist, who is specially trained to provide these services:
Dr. Brayman is dedicated to offering her patients the most advanced dental care available, and some of the latest technologies make your dental checkup a lot easier. We offer digital X-rays, which produce rapid results and enhanced images so you can see where problems exist. Digital X-rays also make it easy to compare images before and after treatment.
Our dental hygienist uses a state-of-the-art device, the DIAGNOdent, that uses a laser to find small areas of hidden decay. If you need local anesthesia, we use the Magic Wand, which eliminates long needles and painlessly delivers anesthesia. And finally, we help you relax by massaging dental chairs.
Our advanced technology can enhance diagnostic accuracy and treatment precision – leading to better patient outcomes, reduced discomfort, and better communication.
We aim to foster trust with you as our patient, which enables you to actively participate in your overall dental health journey.
