Regular checkups are a vital part of your overall health. In addition to preventing cavities, these examinations can help head off gum disease, which contributes to conditions such as heart attacks, diabetes, and even oral cancer.
When you are in our office for a checkup, we will go over your dental history, examine your whole mouth, and clean your teeth. A cleaning usually consists of the removal of the natural buildup of plaque from a patient’s mouth, followed up by polishing which removes stains and any plaque or tartar that may have been missed earlier. Most people benefit from having a professional cleaning every six months.
Our hygienists will help you establish a preventative dental hygiene routine that will keep your teeth healthy and white. We can provide periodontal exams, cleanings, and treatment, or refer you to one of our recommended specialists.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about your current hygiene plan!
