Routine Dental Cleanings
Your toothbrush and floss are a vital part of preventing damage to your teeth and gums, but it is only half of the care you need. You must visit your dentist every 6 months for a cleaning and checkup. Even with the best oral hygiene habits, there are areas in the mouth that you cannot clean on your own. Without a regular appointment, plaque and tartar will accumulate, causing serious complications to your oral health. With a visit twice a year to Gentle Dental Care, we will be by your side to help ensure your teeth last a lifetime.
See Your Dentist Twice a Year
The American Dental Association recommends that everyone over the age of two sees their dentist every six months. This allows us to prevent potential problems while ensuring you develop and maintain your dental health. Without regular care, issues can go undetected and untreated, causing significant and irreversible damage.
Benefit from a Professional Dental Cleaning
A professional dental cleaning is essential to preventing gum disease by removing plaque and tartar accumulations in the mouth that cause the infection. During your appointment, our dental hygienist will use special dental tools to thoroughly clean the teeth. They will be polished and additional preventive treatments, like a fluoride varnish, may be recommended. We will discuss additional hygiene habits you can use at home to further promote the health of your teeth and gums.
During your appointment, we will take digital images to gain a deeper insight into your dental health. This allows Dr. Gerber to see potential areas of concerns that are not visible to the naked eye. In addition, a visual examination is performed for full insight into the health of the teeth and gums.
Dr. Gerber does not just examine your teeth, but the jaw, neck, and other areas that play an important role in oral functions. He will ensure the jaw is functioning correctly and you do not suffer from a disorder of the temporomandibular joint. Dr. Gerber will look for signs of oral cancer and other areas of concern to promote your overall well-being.
By regularly monitoring your dental health, Dr. Gerber can detect potential dental problems early, allowing for quick intervention. This not only keeps your teeth and gums health, but reduces the need for costly and invasive treatments in the future. If we find any area that requires treatment, we offer an array of services right in our office to rehabilitate your oral health. Using the most advanced dental technologies, we deliver the high-quality care you need to smile confidently.
