Dental Cleanings And Exams
These types of procedures help ensure your oral health remains optimal and your smile beautiful, and we consider them elite at Clear Lake Dental Care. Tooth decay is second to the common cold as the most widespread disease in the United States. It affects mostly children and teenagers, but adults are also susceptible. If not treated, tooth decay can lead to pain, missing teeth, and more serious conditions. Ignoring decay can also mean expensive and complicated dental work in the future. Tooth decay prevention is a must and basic step for an overall dental hygiene regimen.
How Often Should You Get Cleanings?
The American Dental Association recommends having a professional cleaning and exam every six months. This isn’t an arbitrary time frame — that’s about how long it takes for plaque to harden into tartar and begin to build up in areas. If this is left untreated, this tartar and plaque will start to push under the gum-line, and that’s the beginning of gum disease.
But if we see you every six months at Clear Lake, we can remove any tartar that has built up. We also thoroughly clean the teeth and provide an abrasive that polishes some of the staining off. Now your teeth and gums are clean and healthy. During a routine visit, Dr. Das will also take any necessary X-rays and check your mouth for cavities and other problems.
Beyond our professional cleaning, Dr. Das, Dr. Pham, and Dr. Acevedo examine your overall oral health. They’re looking for signs of oral cancer and gum disease. They’re looking for any gum recession. They’re testing any existing cavities, bridges, or crowns to verify they are still functioning and intact.
