The Importance of Regular Teeth Cleanings and Dental Checkups
Routine appointments with our dentist are an important part of your overall oral health. The American Dental Association and most dentists recommend you schedule an appointment every 6 months for basic maintenance cleanings and checkups if you are healthy and low risk for dental disease. Higher risk individuals may need 3-4 visits a year for exams when managing active gum disease and/or cavities. These dental exams allow our team to find and treat decay and oral diseases early to help prevent further damage and help you avoid more costly treatments. Teeth cleanings also remove plaque and tartar/calculus buildup that at-home solutions aren’t effective against. During our dental cleanings, we utilize specialized tools designed to remove this hardened buildup and leave you with a healthier smile.
The Benefits of Regular Dental Exams and Cleanings
Regular visits with our dentist are a great way for you to keep your smile healthy. There are so many benefits to these dental checkups including:
- Early disease detection
- Healthier gums
- Whiter smile
- Fresher breath
Our Dental Cleaning and Exam Services
Regular dental exams and teeth cleanings are the foundation for great oral health as well as getting to know your dental team. Junction Dental provides a calm and supportive atmosphere where we take the time to get to know you. Your dental checkup and cleaning will usually take between 60 to 90 minutes. During that time, our dentist will perform a comprehensive exam where he will:
- Check your overall oral health and hygiene
- Look for signs of gum disease
- Inspect your teeth for cavities or tooth decay
- Screen for oral cancer
After your dental checkup, our team will complete a thorough teeth cleaning. Our hygienist will remove any natural plaque and tartar that has built up on your teeth or beneath your gum line.
