Dental Check ups
Comprehensive dental exams and ‘cleanings’ are recommended once every six months for all patients. These visits help identify any tooth decay or early signs of gum disease through a clinical examination and diagnostic X-rays (as needed). Early detection of these conditions can help ensure effective treatment and prevent permanent damage.
Regular cleanings help keep gums healthy and teeth cavity-free. A dental cleaning includes removal of tartar and plaque, which can build up and cause inflammation and disease if left untreated. The teeth are also polished during a cleaning to remove stains and further buildups of plaque that may not be removed during regular tooth brushing.
