Exams And Cleanings Can Offer Confident Smiles

Do you want to enjoy a strong and confident smile? Then you need preventive dentistry to help maintain good oral health. In today’s blog, your Rochester, MN, dentist talks about how routine visits for checkups and cleanings every six months can help you and your family maintain confident smiles.

Dental Exams

Be honest: When was the last time you visited our team for a checkup and cleaning visit? We agree with the American Dental Association (ADA)’s recommendation that people of all ages undergo one every six months. Since major oral health concerns take several months to develop, a visit twice a year means a chance to catch these in the early stages, offering treatment before you develop discomfort or risk the stability of your tooth. To make a diagnosis with precision and accuracy, we will use digital imaging systems. We then craft a treatment plan to address what we discover.

Our team will look for the earliest warning signs of tooth decay, dental infection, gingivitis, and gum disease. We also watch for TMJ disorder and bruxism (teeth grinding). We screen for oral cancer too, and make sure for our young patients that teeth are erupting and falling out as they should.

Dental Cleanings

In the same appointment, our team will also clean the teeth. A dental cleaning means we will gently and thoroughly remove all plaque and tartar from the teeth. To do this, we will use an ultrasonic scaling device and a manual tool. After we remove the plaque and tartar, we will gently polish the teeth for a brighter appearance and a smoother surface. The procedure helps fight bad breath and teeth stains, and also limits the risk of tooth decay and even gum disease.

Brushing and Flossing

To limit plaque buildup and protect your smile in between these six-month checkup and cleaning visits, you need to brush and floss at home. You should brush your teeth for two minutes when you wake up and before bed, each time using a fluoride toothpaste. This goes for kids and adults. Also, people of all ages need to floss before going to bed, to reach what the toothbrush alone cannot reach. These actions help protect the teeth from the onset of serious trouble, so your smiles stay bright and confident. If you have any questions about your checkup and cleaning visits, then contact our team today.
