Cleanings & Checkups
The basics of optimal oral hygiene include brushing and flossing at home and preventive professional dental care. Many oral health problems can be prevented with the combination of home oral hygiene, teeth cleanings and routine checkups. At Topsfield Smiles, we want to prevent tooth decay, gum disease and other dental deterioration whenever possible. Let us help you maintain a healthy, beautiful smile with routine cleanings and checkups.
Dental cleanings are usually recommended at least twice a year for most patients. While home oral care is crucial, even those who diligently brush and floss twice a day should receive routine cleanings. There are areas that are difficult to reach on your own, where plaque and tartar can accumulate. Bacteria hide in tartar, which can lead to a higher risk of decay and gum disease. Teeth cleanings performed by a dental hygienist using professional equipment can eliminate plaque and tartar to keep your smile healthy.
Comprehensive Dental Exams
Most dental problems can be easily fixed when they are detected early. A small cavity can be removed, often without a filling, when caught in the early stages. Dental exams are vital for identifying dental issues before they require more extensive and expensive dental treatments. We offer comprehensive dental exams to inspect the teeth and gums for any signs of disease, damage or decay. If we find any issues, we will recommend a treatment plan to maintain optimum oral health.
Preventive dental care services like cleanings and checkups are the best way to maintain your smile and save money on dental treatments. Keeping up with your routine dental visits can prevent little dental issues from becoming expensive dental problems and protect your smile.
