Dental Exams & Cleanings
Good Oral Hygiene Is Important
There is nothing that your dentist can do that will replace your daily oral hygiene. It is important to brush thoroughly, floss carefully, and rinse vigorously twice a day. You will avoid many dental issues by being committed to consistent oral hygiene.
Semi-Annual Cleanings Are Important
While we can’t replace your oral hygiene routine, it is also impossible for you to replace a professional cleaning twice a year. Your dentist and hygienist are trained and equipped with special tools to remove plaque that has built up in hidden places of your mouth. You will leave with a mouth that feels fresh and clean, and you will know that you are taking every step possible to eliminate painful dental issues.
Semi-Annual Exams Are Important
Along with the cleanings, it is important to have a thorough exam twice a year. The sooner that a problem can be diagnosed, the more options there are for treating it. By treating dental problems in the early stages, you can avoid pain and expense. Your dentist will use x-rays and other specialized equipment to locate the initial stages of decay that are not visible to the naked eye.
