Benefits of Regular Cleanings and Check-Ups

Getting regular dental care is essential for maintaining optimal oral health. While brushing and flossing daily helps prevent tooth decay and cavities, it’s not enough to manage oral health. Visiting the dentist twice a year can help identify any potential problems early on—before they become major issues that could require more extensive treatments to restore your smile.

Expect Caring and Compassionate Care

Delivering dental care with empathy and kindness is vital to patients of all ages. Once you step into the dental exam room, here’s what one can expect:

Dental Check-Up

A thoughtful dental hygienist will use specialized instruments and tools to perform basic teeth cleaning. They will diligently scrape stubborn plaque and tartar from the surface of the teeth and along the gum line. Then, they will polish the teeth and report any suspicious signs to the dentist.

Extra Cavity Protection

Because cavities are the leading childhood disease, it’s worth investing in anti-cavity treatments. Clover Hills offers two: Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF) and dental sealants.

Silver Diamine Fluoride is a colorless liquid brushed onto the surface of the teeth that can annihilate the germs that cause tooth decay, thus preventing, slowing down, or stopping cavity formation.

Alternatively, dental sealants are thin coatings painted on the molars (back teeth) and prevent cavities by forming a protective shield on the tooth.
