St. Louis General Dentistry
Most dentists recommend that patients should schedule appointments twice annually for dental cleanings and exams. This guideline varies for patients who are at high risk for gum disease, cavities, and decay. During your checkup, your dentist will address the following:
During your appointment, your dentist will take x-rays, screen for cancer, check for gum disease, and examine tooth decay.
Professional teeth cleaning involves the removal of plaque and tartar followed by teeth polishing. Professional cleanings safely remove buildup that is missed during regular brushing.
Dental x-rays are used to detect hidden dental abnormalities that are not visible on the surface of the teeth. They are critical to identify and treat decay, bone loss, root issues, and more.
Following your dental exam and cleaning, your dentist will review best practices for teeth cleaning and preventative dental care such as flossing, brushing, and rinsing.
