Oral Hygiene

Good oral hygiene, of course, begins with you but, here at Reardon Dental, we have a great team of hygienists truly dedicated to keeping your teeth and gums healthy for a lifetime.  They are trained and certified professionals who are able to perform a host of dental services including:

  • Cleanings (also called Prophylaxis)
  • Deep Cleanings (removal of hardened plaque or tartar)
  • Periodontal Charting
  • Oral Cancer Screenings
  • Digital X-Rays
  • Dental Sealants
  • Fluoride Treatments
  • Oral Hygiene Education & product recommendations
  • Applying desensitizing agents
  • Administering Anesthesia
  • Administer locally applied Antibiotics

In addition, our hygienists just happen to be great people you will enjoy working with to keep your teeth functional and attractive for a lifetime!

Regular brushing, flossing, and a healthy diet are basic to oral health but that does not mean all sweets are out! Moderation is the key. When in doubt, your hygienist can be counted on to give you excellent advice that is geared to your particular situation or condition. Have a question? Ask Your Hygienist!

What good oral hygiene seeks to avoid are the conditions that can lead, not only to cavities, but also to periodontal disease, or what is commonly called gum disease. These conditions result from many factors but the most common is the accumulation of plaque or tartar on the teeth, especially at the gum-line or below. This causes the gums to be constantly irritated then inflamed. Since the gums support the structure of the teeth, a problem with the gums soon becomes a problem with the teeth.

But, that’s the negative. The positive is that Reardon Dental has a team of very professional, caring, and friendly, hygienists whose major job is to prevent problems. And they love doing it!

What Our Patients Are Saying

  • Gillian S.1/18/2021

    Reardon Dental has the friendliest hygienists and dentists and has made me feel as comfortable as possible in my visits with them. They are an efficient, well-informed team and are very focused on looking out for their patients' needs. I even got my parents (who absolutely hated going to the dentist) to switch to this office, and now they both love it!

    I always have a great experience at Reardon. The staff is very friendly, and Dr. O’Brien is the best. I also always have such gentle cleanings so I’m never nervous to go to my appointment.

    I highly value a thorough cleaning. I was very happy with Ashley 2 yrs ago and most recently Amanda. They took a lot of time and did it right. Thanks so much for giving me a great smile! Keep up the great work.

  • Jessica G.10/29/2020

    In light of COVID, I was glad to see temperature checks being performed prior to entry to Reardon Downingtown. We waited in the waiting room for just a few minutes before being taken back to the exam area. Felicia was incredibly patient and welcoming to my five year old daughter during her appointment. She kept my daughter comfortable during the process for x-rays and molar sealing - neither of which are easy for a kiddo to sit still for. Felicia was efficient but effective and I would be elated to have her perform my daughter's cleanings again in the future.

    Sandy S.10/14/2020

    As a new patient, I was pleasantly surprised that a visit to the dentist could actually be enjoyable. Friendly, courteous, and knowledgeable staff kept me informed with every procedure. After several bad experiences at other dental offices, I believe I have found one I can trust to be gentle, caring, and honest. Thanks to Reardon dental!

    So there are 3 things in life I dread.. Changing my cell phone plan, changing my cable service and the DENTIST. I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Habbel for the first time. Like most, I have a favorite dentist at the practice but she was not available. To say I was nervous seeing someone new was a HUGE understatement. Its like taking your car to a new mechanic. BUT my experience was the best. She made me feel good about coming in. I will see her again next week for two small fillings (yep wasn't so lucky BUT its not a Root Canal). Now I have 2 dentists that I feel very comfortable with!!! THANK YOU

    Amazing first visit! I moved and needed a new dentist and on the recommendation of my parents I went to see Dr. Laura Feller at Reardon Dental and I LOVE HER!! My dental hygienist, Anita was also so nice and friendly and great to work with. I have a lot of work to be done and Dr. Feller talked me through the entire plan and made excellent recommendations. I am actually excited to go back to the dentist again! I highly recommend this practice!!
