Tooth decay and gum disease are two major dental issues that can attack your oral health and destroy your smile. It’s imperative to prevent these problems as much as possible by following an oral hygiene routine and receiving a professional dental cleaning at Long Family & Cosmetic Dentistry. The American Dental Association recommends visiting your dentist every six months for a cleaning to remove the harmful plaque, tartar, and bacteria that create tooth decay and gum disease. If you’re due for a checkup and cleaning, please call our office now at 979-846-0082 and schedule an appointment.
We look forward to helping you maintain a strong and healthy smile!
Dental cleanings and exams are two of the most basic yet important preventive treatments we provide at our office. Each time you visit our dental practice for a checkup, we will provide professional teeth cleaning and dental exams to help your smile stay healthy. During your cleaning and exam, our dental team will:
- Clean your teeth by removing any plaque or tartar (also called dental calculus), which can lead to tooth decay and periodontal disease.
- Floss and polish your teeth for a healthy, bright smile.
- Examine your smile for signs of any damaging dental conditions or diseases.
We may utilize dental X-rays to further evaluate your smile and make sure that you receive the dental care you need. Regular dental cleanings and exams are essential in maintaining good oral health, preventing cavities and gum disease, and ensuring that any damaging conditions are treated as early as possible.
We recommend that you visit us every six months for a routine dental cleaning and exam. We may suggest more frequent visits if needed, and we also encourage you to contact us if you suffer from a dental emergency, pain, or injury. To schedule your next appointment, we invite you to contact us today. We look forward to caring for your smile!
