Dental Exams and Cleanings
At Advanced Dental Care, we believe the health of your teeth is directly related to your overall wellness. While providing expert oral care and high-quality dental treatments, our goal is to help ensure long-term overall health for each of our valued patients.
Beyond daily brushing and flossing, the American Dental Association recommends a professional cleaning and dental exam at least every six months.
Each visit to your local dentist helps to prevent tooth decay and gum disease, saving money and time while avoiding future health problems. When scheduled regularly, each visit helps to ensure a lifetime of strong, beautiful, and reliably functional teeth and gums.
Searching for signs of trouble, we will perform an in-depth examination of your teeth and gums. Designed to help you avoid costly and painful problems, each treatment highlights areas of concerns and addresses them before they become a problem. If needed, dental X-rays will be taken to discover issues that can’t be seen with a visual exam.
Teeth cleanings are meant to eliminate the presence of harmful bacteria while your hygienist examines the surface of each tooth, checking for signs of cracks, decay or cavities. A periodontal exam should also be expected, as gum disease is most often avoided through consistent and proper care. Your hygienist will remove any tartar and plaque buildup through high-pressure cleaning and flossing.
If you feel anxiety about routine dental exams and cleanings, we offer sedation dentistry for even the most basic services. Simply ask about sedation techniques when scheduling your next cleaning with Advanced Dental Care to learn more.
