Being Proactive About Keeping Your Smile Healthy
Taking a proactive approach to your dental hygiene with daily brushing and flossing is one part of maintaining your long-term oral health. The other part is scheduling regular checkups and cleanings with us. These visits allow us to help control plaque and tartar buildup and detect the early signs of other dental issues, such as gum disease or cavities.
The Dental Checkup
When you visit us for a dental checkup, we will carefully and thoroughly examine your teeth and oral tissues for signs of issues such as tooth decay, gum disease, and bite misalignment. Detecting issues early allows us to design a treatment plan to address them effectively and efficiently. During the checkup, we may also use dental technology and tools to create a more accurate and precise picture of your oral health.
The Dental Cleaning
Even though you may brush and floss every day, there is the chance that plaque and tartar are building up in places that may not be reached with a toothbrush or floss. During your visit, we can professionally clean your teeth and keep harmful plaque and tartar at bay, helping reduce your risk for tooth decay.
