Cleanings & Checkups
A good foundation for maintaining healthy teeth and gums begins with regular cleanings and checkups. There is a lot going on in your mouth, much of it below the gum line out of sight, that cannot be detected without a little technology. That is where a thorough checkup becomes an invaluable general dentistry treatment in the fight against tooth decay.
A professional cleaning will also reach places that regular brushing at home will not. In conjunction with your home oral hygiene regimen, a regularly scheduled cleaning by your Lakewood Dental hygienist will ensure that your mouth remains clear of bacteria-causing food particles and plaque.
Comprehensive Dental Exams
Regular checkups help to identify dental concerns before they become major problems. They can also detect early signs of disease such as oral cancer. A routine, comprehensive dental exam can provide the opportunity to treat them successfully before they can become a major concern.
When you schedule a comprehensive dental exam at Lakewood Dental Trails, you will receive a thorough evaluation of your teeth, gums, and bone tissue to get a complete view of your overall dental health. We will look for signs of plaque buildup, decay, loose teeth, or cavities. X-rays will show any potential problem areas so we can create a plan tailored to your specific needs.
Routine dental exams scheduled periodically give us the best chance to find problem areas before they get expensive or become more of a threat to your oral health. Be sure to schedule a comprehensive dental exam with our dentist twice per year. These exams will help keep your dental care plan on track and preserve your beautiful smile.
