Dental Cleaning and Checkup – Englewood, FL

Invest in Healthy Teeth and Gums

Brushing and flossing are important for preventing cavities and gum disease, but those aren't the only threats to your dental health. Not to mention, there's only so much you can do at home to keep your teeth and gums healthy. The American Dental Association recommends a cleaning and checkup every 6 months to keep your mouth healthy. Routine dental care stops common oral health issues from occurring in the first place. A quick trip to your dentist twice a year will help you achieve optimal oral health to support your general wellness.

Why are Regular Dental Checkups & Cleanings Important?

Your toothbrush and floss are your first lines of defense against preventable oral health issues, but they can't reach everywhere in your mouth. Plaque and tartar can accumulate, increasing your risk of cavities, gum disease, and many other concerns. Without regular care from a dentist, dental problems can go undetected until they become a serious issue.

Your dental team provides the preventive care you need to keep your teeth and gums healthy while also monitoring your oral health to detect any concerns while they are still small for quick intervention. Research has found that every $1 of preventive dental care can save up to $50 on emergency and restorative fees.

What to Expect During a Dental Checkup

Your dental team will take X-rays of your mouth to ensure your dentist has a complete picture of your oral health. Your dentist will perform a visual examination to look for anything abnormal, like weakened enamel, gum inflammation, or jaw dysfunction. Based on your examination and what the X-rays show, your dentist will determine if you require any additional treatments, like a deep cleaning or dental fillings.

Your dental hygienist is the first person to get a good look at your teeth to relay information to your dentist. They'll use special dental instruments to clean your teeth to remove tartar buildup. They will also polish your teeth and may provide additional preventive services, like fluoride varnish. Your dental hygienist will learn more about your oral hygiene habits at home and make recommendations for improvement to keep your mouth healthy.

If you have dental insurance, you can visit your dentist every 6 months for a co-payment. Most policies cover 100% of the expenses for preventative dental care. If you don't have insurance, don't worry. We have several solutions to keep cleanings and checkups affordable.
