One of the best ways to keep your smile healthy and beautiful is with preventive care. Brushing twice a day and flossing after meals is a vital component, but so are your regular checkups and cleanings. At Mercy Dental, we advise our patients to strive to come see us at least twice a year for checkups and cleanings to maintain excellent oral health.
Professional dental cleanings are vital to overall oral health. While personal dental hygiene can remove much of the plaque that forms on your teeth, it is not always enough to prevent tartar buildup in hard-to-reach areas. Cleanings with our hygienist remove these pockets of tartar and help improve your gum and oral health. If there are any signs of gum disease, our hygienist can prepare a general dentistry treatment plan to fight any infection to protect your oral and overall health.
Comprehensive Dental Exams
In addition to your regular dental cleanings, routine exams are necessary to protect your oral health. Dr. Doleyres will perform a comprehensive exam of your teeth, gums and mouth to identify any possible threats to your dental health. Catching small areas of decay or damage to your teeth early prevents further deterioration. Our team can quickly perform the needed dental treatments to protect your smile. Repairing damage early can save you time and money compared to performing more extensive dental work down the road.
Routine cleanings and checkups are a wise investment into your health and smile. Contact Mercy Dental today to schedule your next visit. If everyone in your family is due for their checkups, ask about family block appointments to make it quick and easy to get caught up on your family’s routine preventive care. Most dental insurance plans cover checkups and cleanings to make it affordable to maintain your oral health.
