Scheduling a routine teeth cleaning and dental exam at least twice a year is essential for maintaining proper oral health. Regularly visiting your dentist for routine dental exams and cleanings can help prevent common oral health issues such as cavities and gum disease. At iHeart DDS, our dental professionals are passionate about providing the best dental care possible for patients and helping them perfect their smiles.
During a dental exam, your dentist will visually inspect your gums and teeth to check for signs of tooth decay, periodontal disease, and oral cancers. Although most dental exams are visual inspections, your dentist may use an x-ray to capture detailed images of your teeth. At iHeart DDS, every dental exam includes an oral cancer screening for a more comprehensive exam.
By visiting your dentist every six months, you can identify dental problems early. Early treatment of oral health issues such as tooth decay and gum disease is critical to minimize damage and prevent the infection from spreading.
Brushing and flossing your teeth at home every day is vital for your oral health. However, it can be difficult to remove plaque and tartar on your own.
Plaque and tartar buildup is the primary cause of gum disease and tooth decay. The dental professionals at iHeart DDS use special tools to effectively remove the stubborn debris from your teeth.
After removing the plaque, we use fluoride toothpaste and floss to deep clean your teeth. Every teeth cleaning appointment ends with a fluoride application. The fluoride acts as an added layer of protection against cavities and tooth decay.
