Our team at Aesthetic Dentistry Associates encourages our patients to visit our practice every six months for regular dental cleanings and exams. These regular visits, along with good at-home dental hygiene, are essential to maintaining strong and healthy teeth for life.
What Happens During Your Dental Cleaning?
Dental cleanings and exams are some of the simplest yet most effective and important dental treatments that our office provides. When you visit our practice for your six-month checkup, our dentists and team will provide a thorough cleaning and exam. During your treatment, our hygienists will:
- Remove plaque and tartar from the surface of your teeth, helping to prevent the development of cavities and gum disease.
- Floss between your teeth and polish the outer surface, giving your smile a healthy shine.
- Examine your mouth for signs of current or potential problems, such as gum disease and oral cancer.
As part of your examination, our team might take X-rays of your mouth to keep track of your oral health and find any problems that may be hidden from the naked eye. By combining advanced technology and thorough care, Drs. Umansky, Nikmard and Elmore and their team can help keep your smile healthy and beautiful for life.
Why Dental Cleanings?
While it is important to clean your teeth at home, regular brushing and flossing cannot always remove all of the plaque from your teeth. With professional dental treatments, our team can use dental tools and their expertise to get in those hard-to-reach places. With these treatments, our team can help prevent tooth decay, plaque buildup, and gum disease.
In addition to preventing several potential dental problems, regular dental exams and cleanings can help you save money. By preventing and treating dental problems early on, you can avoid more complex and extensive treatments later on.
To help keep your smile healthy and beautiful for life, we encourage you to contact Aesthetic Dentistry Associates at (281) 973-7902 and schedule your dental cleaning in Humble, Texas.
