Cleaning and Checkups

Preventive dental care is the best way to keep your smile beautiful and maintain good oral health. One of the key elements of preventive dental care is having routine cleanings and checkups. At Smile Design Studios, we recommend that our patients adhere to a preventive dental care treatment plan to protect their teeth and minimize dental treatment costs. Most dental insurance covers cleanings and checkups, making these necessary visits affordable.

Professional teeth cleaning by a registered dental hygienist aims to remove plaque, tartar and stains that have accumulated on the teeth. Even with routine brushing and flossing of your teeth and gums, tartar can develop. The professional cleaning of teeth is a crucial part of good oral hygiene and is needed periodically to maintain the health of your teeth and gums.

Most dentists recommend having your teeth professionally cleaned every 6-12 months to reduce the likelihood of periodontal disease progressing. In addition to routine cleanings, good oral hygiene at home is vital to prevent tartar buildup and gum disease.

Comprehensive Dental Exams

Routine checkups once a year can catch dental issues in the early stages. Our dental team uses advanced technology to identify decay, cracks and other oral health issues during annual exams. We utilize digital x-rays, VELscope and intraoral cameras for advanced imaging when screening for decay, tooth damage, oral cancer and other dental issues. Catching oral health issues early can minimize serious complications and improve treatment options.

Checkups are needed to identify any dental issues and create a treatment plan to protect your oral health. They are also a great opportunity for you to ask about cosmetic or restorative dentistry options to improve your smile. Dr. Ellis and our dental team are here to answer any questions you have about your oral health and provide options to improve the beauty of your smile.

To protect your smile and oral health, make sure to adhere to annual or bi-annual cleanings and checkups. Contact Smile Design Studios to schedule your next exam and cleaning. We accept most types of dental insurance, so call us today.
