Teeth Cleaning and Prevention
Did you know that poor oral health, such as gum disease, is related to serious heart diseases? Many people don't realize the importance of visiting a dentist at Lakeway Center for Cosmetic and Family Dentistry and why comprehensive dental exams and cleanings are important to their overall health, as well as the health of their teeth.
Comprehensive Dental Exam
A comprehensive exam is important to ensure that your oral health is in order. One of our dentists can perform a comprehensive dental exam, which includes an evaluation of your teeth and gums. During a dental exam, the dentist evaluates the health of gums as well as the cleanliness of teeth. Additionally, the dentist will be able to see if there are any immediate issues, such as cavities or dental caries or signs of gum disease.
As part of a comprehensive dental exam, the dentist will clean your teeth. This includes using professional equipment to clean every area of your teeth. While you may think that you are brushing your teeth well at home, a dentist is able to get in all the cracks and crevices that may otherwise be missed.
Additionally, the dentist is able to scrape away plaque that can lead to caries and gum disease. A teeth cleaning is essential to ensure that you have healthy teeth and gums throughout the year. It is recommended that adults receive two professional teeth cleanings a year.
