COMPREHENSIVE DENTAL HYGIENE

ROUTINE HYGIENE WELLNESS

Improve your daily brushing and flossing with Ballard Dental Arts.

Daily brushing and flossing remove a great deal of the plaque and bacteria that accumulates on your teeth, but it’s nearly impossible to remove it all on your own.

Your dental hygienist can be your partner in achieving good oral health and visiting the dentist at least twice a year for a professional cleaning can prevent tooth decay and periodontal (gum) disease. Our dentist may recommend more frequent visits based on the condition of your teeth and gums.

What to expect at your check-up appointment:

How Can We Help?

We provide a range of services to help with your hygiene and overall health. Please select an option:

Caring for your Smile

Here is what is included in your typical hygiene appointment.

Visual & Gum Disease Evaluation

During the evaluation, your Ballard dentist will check for cracked, broken, or decayed teeth as well as looking for any abnormal areas on your cheeks, gums, tongue, and roof of the mouth.

Since gum disease affects almost 50% of adults in the U.S. (Center for Disease Control), we perform a comprehensive assessment during your exam to check for any signs of periodontal disease.

When addressed in the early stages, periodontal disease is easily controlled and possibly reversible. Since gum disease exhibits minimal symptoms until it is significantly advanced, it is important to be evaluated for early stages of the disease. Conservative, early intervention is best and our team will assist you in choosing the best treatment options for your condition.

Digital Imaging

The dentist may recommend digital x-rays and photographs to help identify problem areas in your mouth. The type of images may vary based on your particular situation, but a full jaw x-ray, called a panoramic x-ray will give the dentist a comprehensive view of all the structures in your mouth as well as your jaw joint and your sinuses.

Digital 3D imaging may be appropriate in your situation to determine exact positioning of your teeth.

Your dentist may also use a special digital camera to take close up pictures of your teeth or gums. This will help them identify and monitor any areas of concern. We also use intraoral cameras to provide live images of while we examine your smile.

Fluoride Treatment

Cavity Prevention

The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends fluoride treatments based on your risk for developing cavities. Our team evaluates if your risk for cavities is low, moderate, or high, based on criteria outlined by the ADA.

Most individuals with low risk are offered a fluoride treatment twice a year.

Moderate risk individuals are offered fluoride twice a year as well as a take-home fluoride product to help reduce the chance of them getting another cavity.

Individuals with a high risk for cavities may be offered fluoride treatment more than twice a year, a take-home fluoride product, as well as an antimicrobial rinse to reduce the cavity-causing bacteria.

Professional Teeth Cleaning

All of our hygienists are well trained to perform a thorough teeth cleaning. Our team removes the plaque and tartar from your teeth and then polishes them to remove stains and smooth the tooth surface. In addition to hand-held hygiene techniques used by our skilled hygienists, ultrasonic devices deliver targeted treatments to hard to reach areas. These devices deliver ultrasonic vibrations to crush and move calcified deposits of calculus.

Oral Cancer Screening

Development of oral cancer is on the rise. When detected in the early stages, most oral cancers respond very favorably to treatment. The risk of developing oral cancer increases five times with smoking, two and half times with excessive alcohol use and thirty-two times in the presence of a persistent HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) infection.

The dentist will look over all the tissue in your mouth, including your tongue, lips and cheeks, checking for anything abnormal. They will also feel for any unusual lumps or bumps and make recommendations for follow up if necessary. We also have the ability to do a salivary screening to check for an active HPV infection. Recommendations for reducing your risk of developing oral cancer include regular screenings and possible lifestyle changes.

LASERS IN DENTISTRY

Taking your dental care into the modern age.

Lasers have been used in dentistry for several years and provide additional benefits when combined with regular cleanings or therapy for gum disease. There are two specific procedures performed by the hygienists in our offices that can reduce your risk of gum disease or provide improved healing if gum therapy is indicated.

LASER BACTERIAL REDUCTION

Also known as "Laser Decontamination".

A procedure in which thermal, light energy is emitted through a small, fiber optic tip between the teeth and the gums. This energy is used to vaporize the harmful bacteria at or below the gum-line called biofilms.

Biofilms have been shown to be directly related to an increased risk of developing gum disease, a serious infection affecting the supporting bone. During your hygiene appointment, the hygienist will disrupt the biofilm to reduce the risk or severity of periodontal disease, but cannot eliminate the bacteria without the use of the laser. Destroying the bacteria will reduce inflammation in the gum tissue, and keep your gums healthier between visits.

There are no known side effects to laser decontamination. Most patients do not report any sensation during or after the use of the laser. Occasionally, patients will describe a warm, tingling sensation felt during the procedure. Laser decontamination takes approximately 5-10 minutes to complete, and the entire mouth is treated at one time.

The laser uses light energy that is absorbed into the pigmented cell walls of the harmful bacteria, vaporizing them. The bacteria in our mouths that do not contribute to inflammation typically lack pigment in their cell walls and thus are not affected in the same way.

Dental professionals now have access to this technology by using a laser specifically designed to treat the gums. Due to the advances in the production of these dental lasers, our office now has the availability to offer laser decontamination. We are happy to treat our patients with an elevated level of care that is not only supported by years of research but also affordable.

Although the laser kills millions of harmful bacteria at your hygiene appointment, the bacteria will begin to multiply again over time, and will eventually be back to their original levels in a few months. For this reason, we recommend laser decontamination be included every time you see your hygienist. For some patients with a history of periodontal treatment, that is every 3 months. You may be thinking to yourself, “If the bacteria just grow back, what’s the point?”. One of the most important factors in obtaining optimal oral health and control of periodontal disease is your body’s ability to fight off these harmful bacteria. It is true that we are unable to kill the bacteria forever with a single use of the laser, but if it is completed at each appointment, we are able to keep them at a constant lower level, giving your immune system the chance to keep your body healthier.

LASER ASSISTED PERIODONTAL THERAPY

Laser Assisted Periodontal Therapy is a procedure in which thermal, light energy is emitted through a small, fiber optic tip between the teeth and the gums. This energy vaporizes the harmful bacteria at or below the gum-line and removes the infection.

Active periodontal disease is a result of this bacterial infection causing a breakdown of the gums and bone surrounding the teeth. Typically the infected, diseased tissue is removed with a procedure called curettage during gum therapy. It is a non-surgical, conservative procedure performed by your dental hygienist, using a local anesthetic.

Research shows that incorporating the use of the laser into gum therapy procedures “can produce an earlier and greater improvement in gingival health”, and “these applications can be used to improve periodontal wound healing”. The thermal energy produced by the diode laser stimulates circulation and formation of collagen fibers while reducing inflammation and bleeding.

There are no known side effects to incorporating the laser into gum therapy. Most patients report no discomfort during or after the use of the laser. Local anesthetic is utilized for most laser assisted periodontal therapies. It is also recommended to apply vitamin E oil following the therapy to provide a lubricant barrier and additionally promote healing.

Dental professionals now have access to this technology by using a laser specifically designed to treat the gums. Due to the advances in the production of these lasers, our office now has the ability to offer laser-assisted periodontal therapy as part of our standard of care. We are happy to treat our patients with an elevated level of care that is not only supported by the research but also affordable.

Although the laser kills millions of harmful bacteria during the procedure, the bacteria will multiply again over time, returning to original levels over the next several months. For this reason, we recommend laser decontamination therapy be included every time you see your hygienist. For some patients with a history of periodontal disease, this may be every 3 months. One of the most important factors in obtaining optimal oral health and controlling periodontal disease is the body’s ability to fight off these harmful bacteria. Incorporating laser bacterial reduction into appointments following initial gum therapy keeps the bacteria at a lower level, giving the immune system a chance to keep the gums healthier.

My family of four has been using Ballard Dental Arts for several years now. The team is always so kind and professional and they work well together to care for their patients. They are incredibly organized and every visit seems easy and seamless. I highly recommend them!

Listen. Before Ballard Dental Arts, I was the most dental-phobic person you can imagine. I'm afraid of shots (I faint sometimes), I can't sit still, I gag a lot, it takes a lot to get me numb sometimes....I'm a difficult patient. Cold sweats at the thought of making an appointment brand of anxious.I cracked a tooth in half out in the middle of 2021 somewhere, and it became clear that something had to be done. I hadn't been to the dentist in 13 years.Cue Dr. Tobler and the whole team at Ballard Dental Arts. I somehow managed to get myself in for an exam, and I immediately trusted these people. They were super thorough and kind about understanding my anxiety disorder, and have a variety of options for people with dental-phobias from blankets and pillows through to medication, gas, and even complete sedation if you want it. Camille turned on some tunes, and we had a nice chat while we did a ton of x-rays. My periodontist, Terri-Ann, even turned the lights off for some particularly long appointments because it was more relaxing that way. I legitimately dozed off at one point during a deep cleaning.My treatment plan was quite lengthy, and my treatment coordinator, Travis, worked with me every single step of the way to balance cost constraints, and prioritize what was most important. His patience and kindness is really hard to come by. He even talked me out of a rash decision to pull a tooth that ended up being saved. I was never confused about what we were doing, and I felt very included in the process.I've almost never been uncomfortable during any procedure in this office, and I've spent maybe like 15 hours in the chair here at this point. Maybe more! Dr. Tobler is warm, honest, and straight-forward about diagnosis, treatments, and prognosis. I've never been uncomfortable with any recommendation he's made, and he's not interested in treatments that aren't necessary. Tinker and Melissa have both done fillings (more than I can count off the top of my head) and a crown prep and placement for me, and are both fabulous. Careful, kind, and obviously very passionate about what they do.Everyone that has treated me has checked in, made sure I was ok, and done everything possible to keep me comfortable and pain free.The front desk staff are outstanding. They ALWAYS find appointments that work with my schedule, are flexible about moving appointments and cancellations, and are always kind and efficient.It sounds dramatic, but coming here has actually changed my life a little bit. All these anxieties applied to every sort of medical appointment, and frankly, it's embarrassing sometimes. The wonderful people in this office have showed me that there are compassionate people out there who really care, and do what they do because they want to help people. Now I know what to look for.Thank you, thank you, thank you! As long as I live in the greater Seattle area, I will be a patient here!

I recently had my wisdom teeth removed by Dr. Tobler & the wonderful team at Ballard Dental Arts.I had a LOT of anxiety about getting my wisdom teeth out. I had been avoiding it for at least 5 years. I had been to several dentists until I landed on Dr. Tobler at BDA. They took GREAT care of me - my teeth and my anxiety.Dr. Tobler earned my trust from the first appointment - just a general cleaning - because he took my anxiety and past negative dental experiences seriously. He listened to me and was calm and kind. I visited a few more times over the next year for routine cleanings (Karen is AWESOME!) to build confidence in and a relationship with the clinic. The staff and experience for routine work had been so great, so I felt comfortable going for the surgery there. Every single staff person has been incredibly pleasant and helpful in every single interaction I’ve had there.So I booked my procedure with Travis, who was so nice when I told him how anxious I was about it. Real talk, I was still deeply anxious about it! Like, panic attack when I thought about it anxious. My brain pretty much thought this would be a life or death situation (spoiler alert: it wasn’t! It was totally fine).Here’s how it went:I went in for a pre-op consult a week before surgery with Jacqui, who was kind and reassuring, and answered every single anxiety-brain question I had and was totally non-judgmental. (Like: am I going to have one of those awake and in pain during surgery horror stories you hear about. Answer: NO, not that type of sedation). This is the perfect time to reality-check.I also called the office at least 3 times in the week before the surgery with more questions, and every single time, every member of staff was kind, patient, and helpful. The day before surgery, I was freaking out, and at my request, they got me a same-day Rx in case I needed pharmaceutical help being calm enough to actually make it in to the appointment. I didn’t end up needing it, but it gave me peace of mind that there was a backup plan if my anxiety went off the rails. I felt like they had my back.The morning of - I was using ALL my self-soothing techniques - and made it to the appointment. My team that day was Sam and Melissa. Melissa was cheering me on, and did some great positive visualizations with me. Sam was so warm and gentle, and also very encouraging. They talked to my responsible party about aftercare and answered all our questions. They hooked me up to different monitors, and explained everything they were doing. All the while, they were telling me how great I was doing, and were enthusiastic about all my calming techniques, and were encouraging and supportive. Then Dr. Tobler came in, he answered all my questions (even ones I had just asked Sam and Melissa), promised to take good care of me, and we were off! The sedatives kicked in, the ceiling melted, and I don’t remember anything (which is exactly what I wanted) until they woke me up and helped me out.Everything about my procedure and recovery went 100% smoothly. I was absolutely fine. I was kind of scared of how much it would hurt after. Honestly it was manageable. Between the heavy-duty Ibuprofen and aggressive icing, I had almost no swelling and little to no pain at the extraction sites. (Preventing swelling is the best way to prevent pain after - use ICE!!) My jaw was sore for about 10 days.So, if you are like me, and cannot get your rational brain to cooperate with getting needed dental care, I have only good things to say about Dr. Tobler and the whole team at Ballard Dental Arts. They’ll support you and they won’t judge you. If you are scared about dentist stuff: YOU CAN DO IT! They understand dealing with dental anxiety. They will do everything they can to help you be comfortable and relaxed. I hope I never need another dental surgery, but if I needed one, I would come here again (and I'm getting all my routine stuff here, too). The best part of getting it done - it's OVER & I don't have to worry about it anymore. 1000 stars. Highly recommended.

Let me start off by saying I am phobic of dentists just so you can feel the impact of this review.I had an extremely amazing experience! I haven't been to a dentist for 4 years because of my phobia. Not once did they shame me for taking so long to come back to see a dentist. They didn't shame me because my mental health doesn't always mean I can brush my teeth regularly, they actually showed concern and wanted to make sure I was getting the help I needed. They explained all the work I needed to get done in a friendly and calm way. Explained payment plans and that it was okay to spread out the treatments and I was just relieved. I've never once left the dentist with a smile on my face and I was legit happy.Also the staff are some of the nicest people ever! They were all amazing!

I was recommended to Ballard Dental Arts by a friend when I had just moved back to the area about a year ago and I'm so happy to have found them. Not only is the office convenient to me & their office has early hours, the whole staff is so friendly, the office is super clean (their COVID precautions are great - you wait in the car and text to check in, then they call you), their billing is super straightforward and simple, and they are very accommodating in scheduling. I've seen Dr. Rowe and she's excellent, Phuong was my Hygienist this AM and was so helpful, so patient and kind. I have terrible anxiety about going to the dentist and Ballard Dental Arts makes me feel so comfortable. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a dentist.

Making my first appointment over the phone was quick, easy, and Kendra was very helpful in answering my questions. My availability for follow up appointments was tight, but the front desk team was incredible in their efforts to get me in on a short time frame. Thank you! The doctors and hygienists are wonderful and kind people. Thank you to Jenni for making my visit as comfortable as possible.

I just got my teeth cleaned and polished and I had probably the best dental experience of my life. Last time 6 months ago I had Jenni work on my teeth and she is the first person to ever get me motivated to floss and buy and use a night guard. It clearly paid off because I had great results to show for my work this appointment. Jenni is extremely educational and I felt cared about here as opposed talked down to like I have other places. I have had nothing but amazing experiences since coming here and will continue to receive my dental work from people I trust. Thanks guys!!

It is truly comforting to know you have a professional, personal dentist who actually cares about your health. People without a dentist can have a lot of problems, but with Ballard Dental Arts all your fears are laid to rest. My first procedure this week involved #31, a fractured tooth that would have only gotten worse had I ignored it. Dr. Eggert, Melissa, and the other assistants, are truly helpful and friendly. Very important to my dental care is anesthesia, and I chose Ballard Dental Arts because they use Nitrous, which makes the procedures for me to go a lot smoother. I am not at all concerned about over-hyped dangers of N20, so that part of my dental care is crucial to me.Billing is also very gracious, as they know a full crown can cost over $1,000 which is necessary to pay, or else the tooth gets infected, which can lead to an abscess or much worse. They allow self-pay patients like me, who knows how practically worthless are the dental plans in this state, 90 days same as cash. If not for that, I would have had to postpone my care and put my health at risk. Thank you, Ballard Dental Arts, for truly caring. No, they did not pay me or egg me on to write this review, it's just something that I do anyway for the truly deserving businesses out there. Totally recommended.Best way to get here and avoid the very heavy Ballard traffic is to go over to 17th Ave. NW, and then turn eastbound onto NW 58th street to the end of the block, and they have a parking lot on the north side behind the building, which is actually the main entrance.

I honestly look forward to my twice yearly dental appointments. I have been visiting Ballard Dental Arts for a few years and have had a consistently positive experience, even when that experience involved cavities and fillings.Dr. Tobler instantly puts you at ease. He is skilled, trustworthy, and patient to explain each step and option. I've definitely had dentists in the past who left me in the dark while they worked on my teeth, but Dr. Tobler goes out of his way to answer every question, sometimes before you even think to ask.The cherry on the cake is the amazing hygienist Jenni. Not only does she take excellent care of your teeth, but check-ups with her are like visiting with a friend you haven't seen in 6 months. She is pure gold. You may forget you're having your teeth cleaned.

Have been very pleased with Ballard Dental Arts. I'm happy that Ginny has been my Dental Hygienist for many years & I've found Dr. Tobler - who acquired the practice relatively recently - to be thorough, knowledgeable, attentive and congenial.

Melissa helped make my appointment stress free and comfortable. They were even kind enough to offer me a Bluetooth headset during my visit! Overall, this dentist office offers treatment in a way that is both kind and transparent.

Going to the dentist is NOT something people look forward to! But the team here is so delightful and really makes it a better experience. Siri is the best hygienist and is so sweet - she makes this chore no one looks forward to actually enjoyable.The front desk staff is always friendly and helpful and Dr Tobler is such a patient, nice doctor. I can’t recommend this practice enough!

Lovely facility with great people. I've been going to Ginny (Virginia) for years and she is always warm, conscientious, and professional. I love going to her for my cleanings.I had more extensive work done today by Melissa and Dr. Eggert and they were frequently checking to see that I was comfortable as well as informed about what they were doing each step of the way. They each have a gentle touch and did beautiful work.

I came in 2 weeks ago and saw Dr. Eggert for help with my teeth. I had lost a temporary tooth for 2 teeth and needed something for it. He explained that the roots and 1 front tooth needed to be pulled. He went ahead with it and he and his assistant Melaine were so kind and understanding with me. I was not expecting to have teeth pulled but they were wonderful. The front office too was very kind also. They said that they would make things right with me meaning that I would leave with something to replace my pulled teeth. I am so happy that I found this clinic and would recommend them to everyone who needed a dentist. Thank you for everything you have done for me and in the future too. Cindy Brighton

How often should I get my teeth cleaned?

The Academy of General Dentistry recommends seeing the dentist for a check-up and cleaning at least twice a year. Your Ballard dentist may recommend you visit more often depending on your specific situation and risk of disease. Some conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, or pregnancy may require more frequent cleanings to keep you and your mouth healthy.

Will my insurance cover my check-up appointment?

Most insurances cover the procedures completed at a check-up and cleaning appointment. Our great team of insurance coordinators will help you navigate through your specific insurance benefits and provide you with an estimate of costs should there be a remaining balance after the insurance payment.
