Dental checkups and cleanings are essential for maintaining a healthy mouth. Prevention is important because poor oral health is linked to systemic health issues including heart disease and dementia. The Wilson Dental Group always takes a gentle and conservative approach to dentistry.
During your dental cleaning…
Your teeth cleaning experts use special tools to gently scrape away tartar deposits. They polish the teeth to ensure a healthy shine. A regular teeth cleaning should not cause discomfort and will only take about 30 minutes in the dental chair.
Your teeth cleaning will:
- Protect the teeth from decay
- Safeguard gums from disease
- Produce a healthier-looking smile
- Promote fresh breath
Our experts work hard to make sure patients feel comfortable and at home. Your teeth cleaning should be a relaxing experience. During your teeth cleaning, we would be happy to answer all of your questions about at-home care.
Why have a dental check-up?
At your twice-yearly family dentistry visit, you should have both a teeth cleaning and a dental check-up. During your dental check-up our compassionate professionals will gently:
- Evaluate the health of the teeth and gums
- Examine the structures below the surface
- Take an in-depth look at every aspect of your oral health
- Educate you about the status of your smile
- Detect and treat potential dental conditions as early as possible
For many patients, a dental check-up is simply reassurance that their teeth are healthy and strong. Whenever we see a potentially dangerous issue, we will inform the patient and help them develop a treatment plan. The earlier we treat things like decay and disease, the more comfortable and affordable treatment will be.
Be Aware of your Oral Health!
Family dentistry is so important because we are watching out for factors that contribute to oral cancer, tooth loss, and severe pain. We hope to help you avoid all oral health issues and maintain a healthy smile for a lifetime.
The secret to beautiful, healthy teeth lies with at-home maintenance paired with in-office family dentistry visits. If you think it might be time to schedule your next dental check-up, contact Wilson Dental Group today.
