Yes. It’s Possible to Keep Your Smile Healthy for Life
Preventative dental cleanings and exams allow us to intercept common oral health problems when they’re small. At that point, treatments are simple, affordable, or often unnecessary altogether. Preventative techniques can lower your risk of tooth decay and gum disease before complex issues ever have the chance to start.
Reversing Problems at the Earliest Stages
Issues like gingivitis and enamel demineralization can be reversed before permanent cavities or bone loss ever start. Our team will show you how to remove bacterial plaque in an effective manner. That way you need less dental work in the future!
How Often Should I Visit the Dentist?
People with healthy teeth and gums typically do best with a preventative cleaning and exam every six months. These intervals allow us to pinpoint signs and symptoms when they’re easily correctable.
If you’re someone who has a history of frequent dental problems or gum disease, it’s probably best for us to see you as often as every 3-4 months to help you avoid relapse.
What to Expect
Cleaning — A gentle, thorough cleaning will remove all of the tartar buildup and stain that has accumulated since your last checkup.
Gum Health Screening — Did you know that periodontal disease is the leading cause of tooth loss? We’ll measure your gum and bone levels to ensure your smile is stable.
Oral Cancer Screening — This dangerous disease is difficult to diagnose on your own. Routine dental exams could save your life.
Dental X-rays — Digital X-rays make it possible to screen for cavities and bone loss in areas that aren’t visible to the naked eye.
Oral Hygiene Consultation — Some of us have hard-to-reach areas that are challenging to clean. Modified hygiene techniques or special cleaning aids can make your daily hygiene routine more effective.
Complete Exam — Our dentist will evaluate your teeth, existing dental work, X-rays, and review any findings by the hygienist. Then we’ll review all of the information with you, to co-plan the next steps in your care.
