DENTAL CLEANINGS & EXAMS
The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that patients visit the dental office every six months for a dental cleaning and exam. This routine preventive care is crucial to keeping your teeth, mouth and smile healthy, as it allows Dr. Roger Anderson and our team to check for any developing problems and provide treatments to restore your oral health promptly.
Dental cleanings and exams are two of the most important services provided at our dental clinic. During each of your dental checkups, our team will provide you with a professional teeth cleaning and Dr. Roger Anderson will thoroughly examine your mouth. Your dental cleaning and exam will typically include:
The removal of any plaque or tartar (also known as dental calculus) from your teeth to help prevent tooth decay and periodontal disease
Flossing between your teeth to remove debris or plaque
Polishing your teeth
A dental examination to check for any developing problems or diseases, including periodontal (gum) disease and oral cancer
Your dental exam may also include X-rays. Digital X-rays help us further evaluate your teeth and oral structures, as well as enable Dr. Roger Anderson to check between the teeth and the tooth roots to ensure that your mouth and supporting oral structures are healthy.
While you are encouraged to visit our office every six months for a dental cleaning and exam, Dr. Roger Anderson may recommend more frequent visits if necessary. We also strongly encourage you to call us if you experience pain, injury or another dental emergency so that we can provide you with the care you need.
