Good oral health begins with regular preventive care, both at home and at the dental office. With regular dental cleanings and check-ups, you can stay on top of your oral health and not just catch problems early but prevent them before they start. At Triad Dentistry in Greensboro, NC, our team of dentists and dental hygienists are equipped with modern tools and technologies and use the latest techniques to provide comfortable, high-quality dental care in our warm and relaxing dental office.
With today’s hectic schedules, it can be easy to delay scheduling preventive care appointments like dental cleanings, especially if you are not in any pain or experiencing other dental issues. However, cleanings and check-ups are important for several reasons.
Each dental check-up consists of several steps that are designed to keep your teeth, gums, and other oral structures in optimal health.
First, our dental hygienist will perform a visual and physical inspection of your mouth. Using a small mirror, we look at your gums, teeth, and other structures to check for any areas that may need close attention.
Next, the hygienist uses specialized tools to gently remove any plaque and tartar that have formed on or between your teeth. Some spots, such as the molars in the back of your mouth or areas where your teeth are crowded, may require extra time to thoroughly clean because they are more susceptible to build-up. After the plaque and tartar have been removed, we use a gritty polishing material and a specialized toothbrush to brush and polish your teeth. Throughout the process, we take breaks to rinse and suction the water out of your mouth for your comfort. Then, we floss your teeth to thoroughly clean between your teeth and remove any remaining polish and debris.
As Steven's practice has grown, I have remained convinced this team is one that authentically cares for each of their patients. I would recommend without reservation to anyone seeing a top-shelf dentistry practice.
After your cleaning is complete, the dentist performs a comprehensive dental exam to ensure that your teeth, gums, and other tissues are healthy. With regular cleanings and check-ups, we can typically identify dental issues early on when they are easiest and least costly to treat. If any issues are detected, we provide you with guidance and information on your treatment options.
Depending on you or your child’s age and oral health needs, we may also recommend that one or more of the following treatments are performed at a preventive care visit:
