Cleanings & Exams
Our hygiene team has completed comprehensive hands-on training at the Las Vegas Institute (Las Vegas, NV), RDH Under One Roof (Chicago, IL) and with The Academy of Facial Esthetics (Boston, MA and Nashville, TN). The entire team is certified in healthcare CPR and trained in the administration of local anesthetics using the Wand for the most comfortable delivery of novocaine. They have also been trained in-office on the use of the K-7 and T-Scan to treat bite and TMJ problems and by Planmeca in the use of Conebeam 3-D imaging and external bitewings. In addition, the hygiene team at Cranberry Dental Studio has been trained by Kor and Philips Zoom! Whitening in the proper administration and selection of these popularly used products. Their advanced training enables them to identify pathology missed by most dental offices allowing them to advise patients on dental concerns as well as facial esthetics.
With a combined 50+ years of experience at Cranberry Dental Studio, our hygiene team prides itself on delivering a consistent, high quality, patient-first atmosphere. Our hygiene team works effortlessly to build strong relationships with patients and our community. Our mission is to equip patients with the knowledge to allow them to make smart decisions and care for themselves.
We offer cleanings for adults and kids alike! The American Dental Association and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommend that parents schedule their child’s first dental visit within six months of their first baby tooth appearing, and no later than the child’s first birthday. During these early visits we check growth and development, clean the teeth, give tips for daily care, and establish a positive rapport for future cleanings. In addition to kid’s cleanings, we also offer sealants and flouride to help protect against decay.
Do you notice yourself grinding your teeth at night? Our office offers bite guards to patients struggling with bruxism, a habit of grinding or clenching your teeth. These bite guards are worn at night and protect the teeth against grinding which can lead to headaches, sore jaw, frequent toothaches, worn or cracked teeth, earache, insomnia, and more.
We have a great periodontal program for patients with gum disease. Our knowledgeable hygienists offer periodontal maintenance cleanings as well as scaling and root planing appointments depending each patient’s needs and the severity of their case.
