Regular Dental Cleanings
Regular dental visits are essential for the maintenance of healthy teeth and gums. Checking your teeth for tooth decay is just one part of a thorough dental examination. During your checkup appointment, we will evaluate the health of your gums, examine your mouth for any indications of oral cancer, diabetes or vitamin deficiencies, as well as perform a thorough cleaning of your teeth.
We pay special attention to plaque and tartar, since this can build up in a very short time if good oral hygiene is not practiced between visits. If not removed, soft plaque can harden on the teeth and irritate the gum tissue. If not treated, plaque can lead to gum disease.
