Routine dental cleanings and exams are essential for great oral health. Here at Dentistry at Rea Village our licensed dental hygienists perform thorough dental cleanings recommended a minimum of twice a year. Routine dental cleanings help to keep the gum tissues healthy while eliminating tartar and stain buildup.
We use the latest technology, digital radiographs to ensure the best dental examination possible. Dental radiographs are recommended once a year to check bone levels. These radiographs also allow our dentists to check for decay hidden between the teeth. Your radiographs or x-rays are reviewed during your dental examination of your routine dental cleanings.
There are times when a more in depth periodontal cleaning is recommended. Once bone loss is present, heavy tartar buildup below the gum line and inflamed gum tissue indicate a deeper cleaning may be necessary. With the recommendation for your dentists, our skilled hygienists are trained to perform periodontal cleanings. These cleanings are necessary to ensure stabilization of periodontal disease.
Has it been awhile since your last dental cleaning? Don’t stay away from the dentist due to fear or embarrassment. Dentistry is OUR passion, and we are here to give our patients the best dental services.
