Dental emergencies can strike anyone, but our patients who commit to regular dental care visits present with significantly fewer problems over time. Professional dental exams at our practice allow us to bring a blend of proactive efforts to you.
When you visit our practice we review many aspects of your health before we clean your tooth surfaces. Things like broken teeth, sensitivity or bleeding gums could all be the beginnings of bigger problems down the road. Once we have finished your exam and your teeth are free of tarter deposits, we use professional-strength polishing paste that gently buffs away stain and microscopic plaque. This helps slow yellowing while maintaining a glassy surface for easier home cleaning.
And of course, regular dental visits prove vital in fixing and preventing decay and gum disease as you keep up your daily home teeth cleaning habits. With a proactive approach, together we can prevent minor issues from becoming major procedures.
