Dental Exams & Cleanings
The American Dental Association recommends routine oral exams and dental cleanings at least twice a year to keep your teeth and gums healthy. These routine visits serve two purposes:
- Routine cleanings allow your hygienist to remove harmful plaque and tartar build-up to prevent cavities and periodontal disease.
- A comprehensive examination by one of our dentists helps identify any signs of cavities, gum disease, infection, or oral cancer.
Additionally, we recommend that a series of digital x-rays be taken at least once a year. These precise images help us spot conditions that can’t easily be seen with the naked eye. X-rays also allow us to show you exactly what the problem is and how treatment will help.
Home Care Makes a Difference
During your routine visits, your hygienist and dentist will talk to you about your home care routine and discuss any areas that may need improvement. Your hygienist will provide you with a hands-on demonstration to help you get the best results from brushing and flossing at home. These visits are also the perfect time for you to bring up any concerns that you might have about your dental needs in general.
