What Happens During My Bi-Annual Visit?
We will thoroughly examine your mouth and check for signs of tooth decay and gum disease. This way potential problems can be identified in their early stages while they are easily treatable. We will also perform an oral cancer screening. Your teeth will be gently and professionally cleaned to whiten your smile. Dental x-rays will be taken annually to allow us to catch cavities and gum disease while they are still small problems.
Why Do I Need A Professional Cleaning?
Even with excellent hygiene habits, it is easy to miss small areas of your teeth. Over time, the missed plaque will harden into tartar, which can only be removed with a professional cleaning. When tartar accumulates beneath the gum line it can lead to infection and periodontal disease. Our dental team will meticulously remove hard-to-reach areas. We will also go over your at-home care routine and proper procedures for brushing and flossing. A professional cleaning also makes your teeth look great and can have a whitening effect on your smile.
