The Importance of a Dental Exam
At each exam, we check for signs of tooth decay, gum disease, oral cancer, and other potential problems that require treatment. X-Rays of your mouth may also be taken at the time of your routine dental cleaning.
Dental Cleanings Every 6 Months
Routine dental exams are a big part of maintaining a healthy smile. Harbor Point Dental Group encourages you to keep your routine dental cleanings every six months to prevent excess plaque and tartar build up. Our dental hygienists provide a standard of excellence in performing routine dental cleanings. Along with your routine dental cleaning, Harbor Point Dental Group provides comprehensive routine dental exams by our dentists.
What to Expect at Your Next Dental Cleaning Appointment
A dental hygiene cleaning usually includes a teeth cleaning to remove tartar and plaque along the gumline. The dental hygienist will also polish your teeth to help remove any stains. Professional dental cleanings are the best way to make sure you don’t have dangerous amounts of tartar buildup in your mouth. Regular checkups allow our dentists to keep track of your gum condition, spot changes, and prepare the right treatment plan if needed. Advanced gum disease causes tooth loss and health problems, so keeping your gums in great shape should be a high priority for your health. The sooner any problems are found, the easier they are to fix!
