Your teeth may feel and look great, but it’s still wise for you to schedule an appointment with us for a dental exam and cleaning. Professional cleaning will remove plaque, tartar buildup and staining from your teeth. Generally, we recommend this cleaning and exam every six months for optimal oral health.
Brushing, flossing, and regular dental checkups will help you to have a great looking smile, brighter/whiter teeth and fresh breath, as well.
They are an important part in preventing gum disease and reducing your risk of tooth loss and dental problems. Also, having a healthy mouth reduces your risk for heart disease, stroke, diabetes and oral cancer.
X-rays and Cleaning
We will want to get a clear and complete picture of what’s going on in your mouth. Therefore, you may need to take a set of x-rays. X-rays are not only crucial for diagnosing any teeth issues, they are also vital to diagnose and treat gum (periodontal) disease.
The dental cleaning is very thorough and includes irrigation, brushing, plaque removal, flossing and polishing. The dental hygienist will evaluate your periodontal health and recommend a specific type of dental cleaning for you. The hygienist will also go over oral hygiene instructions with you.
After your dental cleaning is complete, one of our dentists will come in and conduct a physical examination of your mouth. The dentist will also look at the x-rays and determine if there is an issue that you need help with. The two of you will come up with a treatment plan to repair any issues with your teeth.
