Preventative Dentistry in Essex
Good dental care habits are an important part of maintaining good dental health. That includes a daily regimen of brushing and flossing along with regular visits to your dentist for cleaning and dental exams.
No matter how well you brush and floss your teeth, plaque and tartar will build up in some areas. They can only be removed by a trained dental hygienist using special tools. During a cleaning we’ll scale your teeth to remove tartar and plaque buildup and polish your teeth to remove stains. We may also recommend a fluoride rinse to help protect your teeth from cavities.
During your appointment, we’ll also examine your mouth for any potential issues. We’ll check for signs of decay, check the state of existing dental work, look for damage to your teeth, and screen you for any early signs of oral cancer or gum disease. We may also take X-rays to detect cavities and structural problems with your teeth.
We want to ensure you enjoy a lifetime of good dental health. Call us today to make an appointment.
