According to the American Dental Association (ADA), regular dental cleanings and exams are essential for optimal oral health. The frequency of cleanings and exams depends on each patient’s unique oral health needs, but many patients visit twice each year.
Why Dental Cleanings and Exams Are Important
Many patients do not realize that brushing and flossing alone cannot remove all plaque and tartar. Only a dentist or dental hygienist can successfully remove plaque and tartar from the surface of your teeth, around the gumline, and between your teeth. Not only do regular professional cleanings and exams ensure your teeth and gums are in great condition, but you’ll also leave our dental office with a fresher smile.
What to Expect During a Dental Check-up
Regular check-ups allow your Metairie dentist to provide necessary preventive care of your teeth and gums. During your check-ups, our dental team takes x-rays of your mouth to ensure everything is healthy and functional. X-rays also help us see any underlying issues, such as hidden cavities or impacted wisdom teeth, so we can take the necessary steps to ensure your oral health is protected.
