Receiving a professional dental cleaning every six months is standard for the health of your teeth. It’s not uncommon to miss one of your twice-daily brushings or to forget to floss here or there, but that can lead to plaque buildup on your teeth. Once plaque becomes tartar, it can be removed only by a dental professional.
One of our helpful dental hygienists will clean away any tartar buildup on your teeth so that it does not lead to tooth decay or gum disease. After a detailed cleaning and flossing, your teeth will be polished for that deep-clean feeling you can only get by visiting a dentist.
After your dental hygienist completes your dental cleanings, your exam by one of our dentists begins. Your visit might include:
- A visual evaluation
- Digital X-rays
- An oral cancer screening
Often, a dental exam is one of the few opportunities you have for your dentist to catch an oral health issue. A dental exam can reveal if your wisdom teeth are going cause problems when they erupt or alert your dentist to the early signs of gum disease. By committing to regular six-month checkups, you could be avoiding more serious treatment in the future.
