Dental cleanings and checkups should be a normal part of everyone’s year. While it may be easy for people to forgo a dental appointment, the consequences of doing so are not so easy to overcome. A professional dental cleaning twice a year can not only improve people’s oral health, but it can also help to proactively ensure the overall health of the entire body. An infection that begins in the mouth can quickly travel to other parts of the body causing serious health complications. Other than the teeth, the mouth is entirely made up of living tissues. It is essential that a dentist or dental hygienist perform a professional cleaning every six months to thoroughly clean the mouth and to address any condition that needs special attention.
At Gold Hill Dentistry, we offer comprehensive dental care to all of our patients. We understand that regular dental cleanings are the first, yet often most important, step to optimal oral health. During a dental cleaning, our patients not only receive a professional cleaning to their teeth, but we also provide diagnostic and preventative services. An oral cancer screening is done, checking of the bite and swallowing patterns is done, a thorough evaluation of the gum tissue is done, and X-rays are performed to examine the teeth and detect for any signs of decay. Preventive services include removal of plaque and/or tartar buildup, fluoride application, sealants, polishing the teeth, and more. At Gold Hill Dentistry, we provide our professional expertise to ensure that our patients receive the quality dental care that they need.
The American Dental Association and the Academy of General Dentistry both report that professional dental cleanings and check ups should be performed twice a year.
