Dental Cleanings and Exams
Dentist in Edgewater, MD
It is recommended by the ADA that everyone should visit the dentist at least twice per year to ensure optimal oral health. However many patients may need to be seen more frequently depending on their oral health condition. Patients who have a periodontal condition and patients with dental implants will have very different cleaning regimes. We will customize the maintenance schedule optimal for your dental health. Our team will consistently provide you with high-quality professional dental cleanings and thorough preventive exams.
The purpose of a teeth cleaning is to rid the teeth of harmful build-up of plaque and stains that may prevent a healthy smile. During cleanings we will:
- remove tartar build-up on your teeth
- remove plaque
- perform teeth polishing to help remove light surface stains and prevent plaque from easily reattaching to your teeth
We can help clean surfaces of your teeth that you may have missed during brushing and flossing. During your appointment, we will also:
- evaluate your overall health and oral hygiene
- check your bite and jaw for any problems
- evaluate your risk of tooth decay and gum or bone disease
- evaluate existing tooth restorations
- take dental x-rays if necessary
