What kinds of problems can a dental exam catch?
It’s no doubt that at-home oral care plays a significant role in maintaining the condition of your oral health. However, Dr. Kalbaugh and the American Dental Association encourage routine dental checkups and cleaning to promote a long-lasting, healthy natural smile. These routine dental exams can catch tooth decay, signs of gum disease, damaged or weak teeth, and other dental problems that could worsen without proper and timely treatment.
How do I know if I need a deep dental cleaning?
Professional dental cleaning allows Dr. Kalbaugh and our team thoroughly remove plaque and tartar from the surface of your teeth and gum line. If your gums bleed easily, have receded, or it has been a while since your last cleaning, a deep dental cleaning may be recommended. Deep dental cleanings reach below the gum line to encourage healthier teeth. If you need further periodontal care, our team can go over treatment options with you.
How long does a dental cleaning and exam take?
Fortunately, dental exams and cleanings are relatively quick! The dental cleaning process starts with an exam to ensure our team can proceed with the cleaning successfully. After the exam, we will remove the plaque and tartar off your teeth, apply grit textured toothpaste, professionally floss, and apply a fluoride treatment. Exams and cleanings let you know you’re on the right track with your oral health!Contact Us
