Dental Hygiene for a Healthy Smile
Regular dental exams with cleanings, and following a good daily oral health care routine, are important parts of preventive dental hygiene. These practices can help you avoid serious dental issues and keep your smile healthy.
Dental Hygiene: If you have a professional teeth cleaning twice a year, you are less likely to experience a heavy plaque and tartar buildup that could seriously affect your oral health. Visiting your dentist or dental hygienist can also reveal early signs of problems that are much more serious than plaque. Issues like tooth decay (cavities) and periodontitis (gum disease) can both lead to pain and tooth loss, and they’re very much avoidable. Seeing a dentist regularly can help prevent them altogether or, at the very least, stop them in their tracks.
Oral Examinations: Regular examinations give us the opportunity to identify any dental health issues and make a plan to treat them. During your exam we will take a close look at your teeth, gums and bite. Exams may also include digital x-rays, digital impressions, oral cancer screenings, and other procedures as needed.
Oral Cancer Screening: Oral cancer is a cancer that can affect any part of the mouth or surrounding tissues, including lips, tongue, cheeks, floor of the mouth, palate, sinuses and throat.
