One of the best ways to maintain a healthy smile is with preventive dentistry. Cleaning and checkups are at the core of optimal oral health, providing preventive care for your teeth and gums. Our dentists and dental hygienists at Haven Dentistry provide thorough dental cleanings and exams for patients of all ages from Aliana, Pecan Grove and throughout the greater Richmond, TX, area.
Gum and teeth health are paramount to maintaining your smile. Dental cleanings are one of the best ways to protect your gums and teeth by removing plaque and tartar that can jeopardize your dental health. Most people should have two dental cleanings a year to maintain optimal oral health. Those who have early stage gum disease or are prone to gingivitis may need more frequent cleanings.
During dental cleanings, our hygienist will perform a periodontal exam to determine gum health. This can indicate when there are signs of gingivitis or gum disease that may require treatment. During the cleaning, plaque and tartar are removed using professional tools, then the teeth are polished. Routine dental cleanings can help maintain better oral health when combined with daily oral hygiene.
Comprehensive Dental Exams
Like most health issues, the sooner you catch dental problems, the easier they are to treat. Routine dental checkups and exams are vital for maintaining excellent oral health. Our dentists will closely check x-rays and perform a comprehensive examination of your teeth. This is a good opportunity to catch tooth decay or oral disease in their early stages when they are simple to remedy. Our dentist will discuss any issues they find and recommend a treatment plan. In some cases, treatments can be performed the same day to eliminate a second visit to our office.
The most cost effective way to maintain better oral health is with preventive dentistry. If you are due for a dental cleaning or checkup, contact our team at Haven Dentistry to schedule your next visit.
