Dentistry is founded on the principle of prevention. It is recommended that you come in for a semiannual (twice a year) cleaning and examination. Not only does this routine examination help you quash dental problems before they arise, but it also leaves your gums healthier, and your teeth cleaner and whiter.
During a professional cleaning, our dentists remove hard plaque that cannot be removed by brushing and flossing alone. Even if you haven’t had a cleaning in over two years, it’s never too late to treat your teeth, and a cleaning is the perfect place to start! During your visit, our dentists will thoroughly inspect your teeth for signs of damage and decay, and take x-rays before proceeding with the cleaning. We use the latest in dental technology to clean and polish your teeth, while maintaining a high level of comfort. If your doctor notices any issues during the examination, then once your cleaning is finished, he or she will provide a consultation for further treatment.
