Preventive Care: Dental Cleanings and Exams

Excellent dental preventive care requires two equally vital parts: dental cleanings and exams. Even if you are faithfully brushing and flossing at home, Dr. Joan Laura at Eastwood Dental Office stresses the importance of regular dental visits. There are areas of your mouth that you cannot see and your toothbrush cannot reach. It takes a dental professional to do a thorough exam and cleaning.
Cleanings

Dr. Laura and her hygienist will remove sticky plaque and stubborn tartar from your teeth, floss between your teeth, and polish your teeth to make them smooth and clean. Plaque and tartar cannot build up on smooth teeth, making bacteria more likely to be brushed away between dental cleanings in office visits.

Benefits of a Regular Dental Cleaning
  • Makes your teeth look great
  • Removes plaque and tartar
  • Prevents tooth decay
  • Prevents gum disease
  • Prevents bad breath

Exams

Dr. Laura will examine your teeth, gums, soft tissues, and inside your cheeks. After her dental exams, she will make treatment recommendations and advise you about your oral hygiene habits at home.

What to Expect From Your Dentist at an Exam
  • Inspect your teeth for any sign of decay or cavities
  • Check your gums for signs of gum disease
  • Perform an oral cancer screening
