The saying, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” certainly applies to oral hygiene. Our services help prevent cavities, tooth decay, gum diseases, and other oral maladies. They also promote a healthy mouth and a confident smile.
During a deep teeth cleaning, we gently inspect every tooth. The appointment may also include dental X-rays or fluoride treatment. If follow-up care is required, we can take care of everything, including missing tooth replacements, root canals, and other treatments.
Comfortable Dental Exams
Get a little nervous before going to the dentist? We make it easy to relax at Gradeless Dentistry. Below are a few of the ways we set the tone for a soothing experience:
Punctual appointments: Ever feel like you spend more time in the waiting room than in the dentist’s chair? Not here — we respect everyone’s time by seeing patients punctually.
Familiar faces: Recognizing the staff is always reassuring. Most of our team members have been here for several years.
Gentle care: A dental cleaning shouldn’t be uncomfortable. Our experienced hygienists are very gentle.
Thorough examinations: Our dentist spends plenty of time with each patient. This gives you the chance to ask questions and discuss the appointment.
Dental Hygiene and Overall Health
Preventative dentistry does more than just enable a confident smile. In fact, studies show that good oral hygiene often yields better overall health. An article from the Journal of the American Dental Association® titled, “Healthy Mouth, Healthy Body,” says, “The mouth is a window into the health of the body. It can show signs of nutritional deficiencies or general infection.” Taking care of your mouth can help promote physical longevity — ask our dentist to learn more.
Questions about Teeth Cleaning
At what age should I start taking my children to the dentist?
The American Dental Association® recommends that parents schedule the first appointment before their first birthday.
I brush my teeth and floss regularly. Is it still necessary to have a dental exam?
Yes. While brushing and flossing remove the majority of plaque, they can’t get it all off. Moreover, regular dental exams can catch small problems before they turn into major crises.
