Dental Cleanings, Exams, X-Rays
Routine dental cleanings by our professional registered dental hygienists are recommended every 6 months. A thorough dental exam will then be performed by one of the dentists. All of this allows for tarter/plaque removal in order to prevent cavities, gingivitis, and periodontitis. Cleanings include tooth scaling, polishing and flossing. Fluoride application will be done if necessary.
Dental x-rays are recommended every 1-2 years and are very important for they provide valuable information that your dentist could not detect otherwise from a routine dental exam. These x-rays show the dentist areas underneath the soft tissue and in between the teeth that would otherwise go undetected.
