About Dental Cleanings & Exams
According to the American Dental Association (ADA), everyone should visit the dentist twice a year to maintain the optimal health of their teeth and gums.
Regular dental visits are considered the ideal preventive care for detecting any potentially dangerous oral diseases and keeping the mouth and teeth clean and healthy.
Our teeth are constantly exposed to various foods and beverages. While you might brush and floss them regularly, it is entirely possible to miss certain particles that reside between the teeth. Also, many toothbrushes aren’t as effective at removing the plaque that coats the teeth’s surface as professional dental tools.
The buildup of plaque over time can turn into tartar, which leads to to tooth decay or various gum diseases.
How Professional Dental Cleanings and Exams Can Benefit You
The purpose of professional dental cleaning is to effectively remove the buildup of plaque and stains that pose a risk to your oral health and prevent a healthy and confident smile.
Comprehensive dental cleaning and examination will include:
- Evaluation of your oral hygiene and overall health
- Evaluate the risk of gum or bone disease and tooth decay
- Check your jaw for any biting or chewing issues
- Evaluate any existing fillings or tooth restorations
- Take x-rays of the teeth to detect any cavities
- Remove plaque and tartar buildup on the teeth
- Remove surface stains from the teeth
- Perform teeth polishing to prevent the build-up of plaque in the future
A thorough dental exam and high-quality professional cleaning will help reduce your risk of gum disease while maintaining the health of your teeth. It will also help brighten your teeth which can increase your confidence and ensure a beautiful smile.
