Saunders Family Dental, Ogden Utah


Dental Hygiene/Periodontal Health

In addition to the meticulous cleaning, polishing, and examination of your teeth, we also take the time to help our patients develop proper oral hygiene habits at home. We will evaluate your hygiene techniques and make adjustments to your routine where needed. Our doctors will also make suggestions for preventative measures such as dental sealants or nightguards to protect against bruxism (grinding of teeth) & TMJ problems.


If we feel that you are suffering from gingivitis or more severe periodontal (gum) disease, we may recommend a root scaling or planing. These deep cleaning of the root can be instrumental in preventing bone loss and helping you to keep your natural teeth. The doctors might suggest more frequent visits and cleaning to stabilize and control your gum disease.
