Why Regular Dental Check-ups and Cleanings Are Important
Regular dental check-ups and periodontal cleanings allow the BLUSH Dental Studio team in East Point, Georgia to continually evaluate a patient’s oral health and wellness. This is the best way to get a jumpstart on any potential problems that may be developing. Our team of professionals work routinely with patients to help remove plaque and tartar, obtain x-rays to monitor bone and tooth health, and provide education on the best ways to care for the smile, including tips on brushing, flossing, and the best products to use.
How often should I have a teeth cleaning performed?
At each visit to our practice for routine care, our dental hygienists will provide a deep cleaning of both the teeth and gums to remove plaque, tartar, and calculus. Patients with periodontal disease may also have antibiotics applied to treat bacteria that can be contributing to further infection and inflammation. During these routine examinations, our team can spot the early signs of potential problems and ensure patients have access to the care they need. This includes future treatments such as aesthetic dentistry procedures or restorative dentistry. We also perform an oral cancer screening at each appointment, looking in the mouth and throat for any signs of problems that may require a biopsy to test for and confirm a cancer diagnosis.
What services are provided during a routine evaluation?
The BLUSH Dental Studio team provides the following services for patients when they visit during their six-month appointment:
- Periodontal examination
- Cosmetic evaluation
- Professional dental cleaning (prophylaxis or “prophy”)
- Oral cancer screening
- Low radiation digital x-ray images
During this visit, our team will educate patients on preventing potential problems such as periodontal disease and tooth decay as well as finding effective solutions that help them achieve and maintain oral health and wellness.
