You should visit the dentist every six months for a dental cleaning and exam. Receiving regular preventive care is critical to your ongoing dental health, as it helps to keep your mouth healthy and allows us to provide prompt treatment for any dental problems that are developing.
When you receive a dental cleaning and exam, our dentists and hygienists will:
- Thoroughly clean your teeth to remove plaque, tartar and harmful bacteria
- Floss between your teeth for you
- Polish your teeth
- Examine your mouth for signs of tooth decay, gum disease, oral cancer or other harmful dental conditions
- Provide any preventive treatments necessary, such as a topical fluoride treatment
- Take any needed X-rays
If you are at greater risk of periodontal disease or tooth decay, our dentists may recommend that you visit Remington Family Dental more frequently for ongoing dental care. You should also contact our office immediately if you experience a dental emergency, injury, or severe or persistent dental pain.
