Your Dental Cleaning & Exam

The Importance Of Routine Dental Care

Regular dental cleanings and exams should be apart of your preventative care program.  Dental cleanings, performed by a licensed dental hygienist, allow a more thorough cleaning that even the most skilled person can accomplish at home.  During a regular prophy or dental cleaning plaque, debris and tartar above the gum line is removed.  It’s important that tartar is removed along with plaque to help eliminate the occurrence of dental cavities along with the progression of periodontal disease.

Your hygienist will evaluate the health of your gums and if necessary take digital x-rays.  The hygienist will remove the plaque and tartar above the gum line and polish your teeth to help remove built up stain.  During your evaluation, by the dentist, the dentist will make any necessary treatment recommendations after examining your teeth and oral tissue along with reviewing your digital x-rays.
