Most people know they need a dental checkup and cleaning, but put it off because they have anxiety and/or fear about going to the dentist. Those are common concerns, but dental exams and cleanings don’t have to be a dreaded event.
Our caring dentists and hygienists go out of their way to make you feel comfortable during your visit. We want your exam and cleaning to be a pleasant experience.
During your appointment, a hygienist will use a state-of-the-art dental instrument to clean plaque off your teeth that it doesn’t harden into tartar, which can create serious problems if not removed.
The hygienist will follow up by polishing your teeth with a high-tech brush to take care of any stains on your teeth. The hygienist will also show you some professional brushing and flossing techniques that you can use at home.
The dentist will examine your teeth with a dental tool to see if you have any cavities or other structural problems. The dentist will also check the pockets between your teeth and gums.
The dentist may also take some X-rays of your teeth to check below the gum line for decay, gum disease or other dental problems. The dentist may also ask you questions about your dental and medical history.
You should tell your dentist about new health problems, medications and supplements you are taking, and any dental problems that you have noticed with in your teeth, gums and jaw. Also feel free to tell the dentist if you have anxiety about dental visits.
If you have any dental problems that need to be corrected, the dentist will go over a personalized treatment plan with you.
The dentist will also check you for any signs of oral cancer in your mouth. While this is highly unlikely, an early diagnosis is very important in this type of a rare situation. Science has shown us that the link between oral health and your overall health is undeniable.
At the end of the day, a professional dental teeth cleaning and exam can keep you healthier and maintain your beautiful smile. The first step is up to you, please call XXX-XXX-XXXX to make your appointment today.
