Dental cleanings and exams are among the simplest but most vital treatments our dentist and team provide here at Adept Dental Shafter. This routine preventive care plays an important role in helping you avoid dental problems and in ensuring that you receive all the care you need to maintain your oral health and smile.
We recommend that you visit our office every six months for a dental cleaning and exam. These routine visits allow our dentist to monitor your oral health, and depending on your needs, we may recommend a more frequent schedule of visits to ensure that your smile remains healthy.
During each of these visits, we will:
- Thoroughly clean your teeth to remove the plaque and tartar that leads to tooth decay and periodontal disease.
- Floss and then polish your teeth to give you a bright smile.
- Examine your teeth and supporting structures for signs of developing problems.
Our dentist may use X-rays to further evaluate your teeth and mouth. We will discuss your oral health and your at-home hygiene routine with you, as well as any additional treatments you may need.
We strongly encourage you to call us between your visits if you experience any type of dental emergency, such as tooth damage or pain. Our dentist and team will be happy to provide you with emergency dental care to help you regain your health and smile.
