While we certainly recommend you visiting our office at least twice a year for a professional cleaning, if it has been a long time since your last cleaning, don’t worry; there’s no judgment at Blevins Dentistry.
Our goal with professional cleanings isn’t to evaluate your past dental history; rather, it’s to give your teeth a thorough cleaning and examination, putting you on the path to better overall oral health and wellness moving forward.
Here are just a few things our dental hygienists will do at your appointment to ensure you leave our office with a happier, healthier smile:
• Removal of plaque and tarter from your teeth and gums. Over time plaque and tarter can form from food, saliva, and bacteria. It’s important to keep a close eye on them, as they can lead to more severe dental problems down the road if not taken care of appropriately.
• Polishing and removing stubborn stains from teeth. While not all enamel stains can be removed during a professional cleaning, a professional hygienist can polish your teeth and improve your appearance drastically. Plus, your mouth will feel very clean after your visit!
• Fluoride treatments for children and teens to strengthen tooth enamel and reduce the risk of tooth decay.
Depending on your unique needs, we may also recommend x-rays, as well as discuss nutrition with you in order to ensure your mouth is healthy for years to come.
