Brushing and flossing your teeth daily is a very important component to keeping your smile healthy, but there are some things your toothbrush and floss can’t do. Visiting Dr. Jones and Dr. Harris every six months for a professional cleaning and checkup is an essential part of preventive dental care. Our team is devoted to keeping your smile and your whole body healthy and beautiful. Your dental checkup offers several helpful benefits.
Cleaning and Exam
Your oral assessment will begin with an overall look at your mouth. Our team will take dental X-rays to help detect tooth decay, gum disease, alignment, and other problems in their early stages. We will also review your full medical history so we can determine your risk of health problems that are affected by your oral health. Furthermore, our powerful dental tools will scrape tartar off your teeth and polish your smile. Our professional cleaning will clear out plaque and tartar from below your gum line and other spots that you can’t reach on your own.
Communication and Education
Drs. Jones and Harris will discuss the condition of your mouth so you know how to properly take care of it. If you have any dental problems, we will discuss your treatment options and fully explain all the information you need to know to keep your mouth healthy. We encourage you to ask questions and discuss your concerns if there’s anything you don’t understand. We also want you to feel as comfortable and confident as possible, so if you have any anxiety, please let us know so we can make accommodations. Educating you about your oral health will help you understand what you need to do to protect your teeth and gums.
