Just as preventative health care decreases medical problems before they occur, preventative dentistry reduces oral health issues. Among the most effective preventative measures are professional dental cleanings. Dr. Rosa Beck and Dr. Christine Lamun both encourage each of her patients to receive at least 2 in-office dental cleanings per year. These scheduled cleanings work along with your oral hygiene regimen to keep your gums and teeth their healthiest.
Before Your Dental Cleaning
Whenever you schedule a dental cleaning, it is our standard to assess your oral heal. This allow us to understand changes in your mouth by comparing them to your previous cleaning. We’ll also be in position to prevent problems before they turn into expensive fixes. Our check-ups can properly identify:
- Oral cavities
- Tooth decay
- Gum disease
- Jaw alignment problems
- Oral cancer
Hence, our dental cleanings and comprehensive check-ups are great ways to reduce dental bills. If we find any areas in your mouth that need attention, either of our doctors will fill you in on the details and schedule the best treatment option. We always recommend that each of our patients visit us at least twice a year. This enables us to track changes in their dental health and stave off minor problems before they become major ones.
Preventing dental problems is the best way to keep beautiful and healthy teeth throughout your life. In addition to cleaning services, our team also helps patients by sharing with them:
- Advanced tooth brushing and flossing methods
- Nutrition advice that affects healthy teeth
- Future treatment considerations for hygienic treatments such as scaling and root planing
