It is widely known that brushing and flossing your teeth daily is very important to your dental health. However, oral hygiene alone is not enough to achieve and maintain ideal oral health. You must also have a professional dental cleaning and checkup twice a year. This will allow Dr. Steven A. Beuligmann to help you keep your teeth healthy and strong.
When you come in for your cleaning and exam appointment, our hygienist will first use a special tool to remove all plaque and tartar from your teeth. Then the hygienist will floss all of your teeth. Depending on your needs, dental fluoride may be applied. Then your teeth will be polished to give them extra shine.
During the next stage of your appointment, our dentist will examine your teeth and gums thoroughly. Your gums will be checked for signs of gum disease and other issues. Our dentist will then perform an oral cancer screening. They will decide whether or not you need to have dental X-rays taken. Our dentist may also review and update your dental health history.
If any dental problems were found, our dentist will discuss them with you and go over your treatment options. We want you to be able to take an active role in your dental treatment, so we will answer any questions you may have. Of course, you will make the final decision about your treatment. If needed, our dentist or hygienist will also educate you about proper tooth brushing and flossing.
