When was the last time you and your family received a routine checkup and cleaning? To start 2024 with your best smiles, you should consider scheduling a checkup and cleaning visit today! At your Farmington, MI, dental office, we can offer preventive care to help smiles of all ages remain strong and healthy.
The Checkup Process
The checkup is an essential part of your oral hygiene routine. The issues that threaten your smile, such as tooth decay or gum disease, don’t form overnight. Which means checking in with us twice a year is a chance to catch these issues early, often before you experience uncomfortable symptoms. We then create a treatment plan to address them and protect the health and stability of your smile. Our team will conduct them using advanced digital imaging technology, so we can make a diagnosis with precision and accuracy. These visits are benefits for kids and adults alike, so be sure every member of your family receives a checkup from our team.
In the same visit as the checkup, we will also clean the teeth. Brushing and flossing are important, but they cannot remove all plaque and tartar from your teeth. You need a professional cleaning for that, and using an ultrasonic scaling device and a manual tool, we can remove all the buildup from your teeth to limit the risk of tooth decay and gum disease, and also fight bad breath and teeth stains. The process takes only a few minutes, and safeguards your smiles for months to come. If you have warning signs of gingivitis and gum disease, we could discuss a deep cleaning known as a scaling and root planing to help address the issue and safeguard your oral health!
Our team provides care for patients of all ages, from kids to adults. Alone with our preventive checkups and cleanings, we could discuss treatments for kids to lower the risk of tooth decay, such as fluoride treatment administered during each exam to strengthen the outer enamel. We also have dental sealants for the rear teeth, which prevents food and drink particles from being trapped where kids have trouble reaching while brushing and flossing. The sealants are placed in minutes and can last for years to come. If you have any questions about preventive dentistry, or if you would like to schedule a visit with our team, then reach out today to learn more! Let’s make 2024 the year we improve your family’s smiles!
