Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings
When you come in to see us for your semiannual preventive checkup, it will consist of two main parts: a dental cleaning and an oral exam.
A dental cleaning is designed to clear away plaque, bacteria, and tartar that has built up on your teeth and gums. Even if you brush every day, there are still spots you simply can’t reach at home, but a dental cleaning will be able to target these particular areas.
Afterward, Dr. John Krell will perform a thorough oral exam. They’ll look for things like tooth decay, gum disease, oral cancer, and even TMJ problems. Depending on their findings, they’ll recommend a treatment plan that will address all of your individual needs.
Has it been more than 6 months since your last checkup and cleaning? That means it’s time to come see us, so be sure to make an appointment today.
