Cleanings & Checkups
Regular dental treatments for cleanings and checkups are one of the most important aspects of your oral health. It is during these routine dental appointments that your dentist thoroughly evaluates your entire mouth, looking for any issues that you may not be aware of. At Bear Valley Dental Care, we want to partner with you in the prevention of cavities, gum disease and other oral health issues that threaten to ruin your smile. We offer our exceptional services in a comfortable, relaxed environment.
Even for those who take excellent care of their teeth at home with daily flossing and brushing, routine cleanings and checkups are still vital. The smallest amount of plaque that is left on the teeth will harden into damaging tartar. Routine cleanings allow your teeth to be completely clean in order to keep cavities and gum disease at bay. Your comprehensive exam is also vital because it is during these exams that dental issues are often caught in their earliest stages. With early detection and intervention, issues that may be putting your oral health at risk can be treated immediately.
Comprehensive Dental Exams
A comprehensive dental exam is a way for our dentists to thoroughly evaluate your teeth, gums, tongue, cheeks and every other area inside your mouth. Once one of our talented and gentle hygienists cleans your teeth, our dentist will come in to review your x-rays and do another visual examination of your mouth. Our dental hygienists are highly trained to clean your teeth and perform a cursory exam of your mouth. The dentist looks for signs of cavities, cracks in the tooth enamel, any damage to existing dental prosthetics, signs of oral cancer or other issues that present themselves within the mouth.
Having a routine, comprehensive dental exam once or twice a year is the most effective way for you to avoid major, and majorly expensive, dental treatments. Most dental issues that are caught early are easy to restore and require inexpensive treatment methods. Preventive dental care is usually covered by dental insurance. If you do not have dental coverage, keeping your dental health costs as low as possible is extremely important. With routine cleanings, checkups and comprehensive exams, your smile can be as healthy as possible. Contact our office today to schedule an appointment for a cleaning, checkup, and comprehensive exam.
