You should visit the dentist every six months for a dental cleaning and exam. This routine preventive care is among the most important dental treatment that you can receive, as it helps to keep your mouth healthy and free from problems like tooth decay and gum disease. By visiting Rock Creek Dental regularly, our dentists can monitor your oral health and quickly provide care for any developing dental problems which may damage your oral health and smile.
During your appointment, our dentists and hygienists will:
- Clean your teeth to remove plaque, tartar (calculus) and harmful bacteria from your mouth
- Floss between your teeth
- Polish your teeth
- Examine your entire mouth for signs of tooth decay, gum disease, oral cancer or other damaging dental conditions
- Take any needed X-rays
- Provide additional preventive treatments as needed (such as fluoride treatments, dental sealants, etc.)
We may recommend more frequent visits to our office depending on your oral condition. We also urge you to contact us as soon as possible if you experience a dental emergency or other oral injury so that we can provide treatment.
