Routine preventive dental care is the key to enjoying a lasting smile and avoiding common dental concerns such as tooth decay and gum disease. Professional dental cleanings and examinations are recommended every six months to protect your oral health, prevent cavities and remove dental plaque and tartar. Canton Dental Associates ensures discomfort is minimized and provides an array of diagnostic educational and preventive services to ensure your satisfaction.
Dental Cleaning What to Expect
Patients who practice good oral hygiene—including proper brushing and flossing twice a day—as part of their home care regimen, typically do not experience any discomfort during cleanings. During your appointment, the team at Canton Dental Associates will assess your overall dental health—evaluating for dental caries (cavities) and recommending treatments as needed.
The evaluation may include dental X-rays to assess below the gumline. Your dentist identifies any underlying problems related to dental health to ensure long-term, positive results. Oral cancer screenings are also performed as a part of routine cleanings. Fluoride treatment may be recommended to strengthen teeth and prevent cavities and decay, especially in younger patients.
Why Maintain Your Smile?
The health of your smile is directly related to your overall health and well being. The “mouth-body” connection continues to be studied and has proven to play a significant role in the development and severity of a range of health concerns, including cardiovascular and systemic disease. Maintaining a consistently healthy smile enables you to enjoy a good quality of life.
Our preventive dental care program is focused on helping you to identify and address the unique lifestyle habits and risk factors affecting your oral health. We strive to provide you with dental care and oral hygiene advice that is personalized for your smile.
