Regular Exams & Cleanings
Regular exams are an important part of maintaining good oral health and a great smile, and they take less than an hour! During your regular exam, a dental professional will perform each of the following tasks:
- Check for any problems that you may not see or feel
- Look for cavities or any other signs of tooth decay
- Inspect your teeth and gums for gingivitis and signs of periodontal disease
- Provide a thorough teeth cleaning
You dentist will clean, polish, and rinse your teeth as part of any regular exam in order to remove any tartar or plaque that has built up on each tooth's surface. Visits to your dentist for a regular exam every six months gives you the chance to talk with a dental professional about your oral health.
Great smiles are a result of strong partnerships between dentists and their patients, professional relationships which promote dental health through daily brushing and flossing and regular exams and cleanings.
Be sure to talk with your dentist about how to maintain the natural beauty of your smile by scheduling an appointment today!
