Attention all educators and students! If you’re preparing for the new school year, you may want to consider taking the time to go into the dentist for a dental cleaning. Dental cleanings can be a great way you can ensure your teeth are clean, healthy and looking your best for the big school year.

We’re going to give you a look at what you can expect from us when you come in for your dental cleaning and exam appointment. When you first arrive at our office, one of our registered dental hygienists will take dental X-rays of your teeth, usually once a year, to help diagnose any potential problems with your smile.

After your teeth are X-rayed, the hygienist will clean, dry and polish your teeth to give them a beautiful shine. The dentist will then come and exam your gums, teeth and jaw for any other signs of damaging dental conditions or gum disease. They will also remove any built-up plaque or tartar, which are known to promote decay and gum disease. After you have had your teeth cleaned and examined, our hygienist will provide individual instructions on how you can improve your hygiene habits.

It’s important to remember that you should have regular dental cleanings and exams done every six months to ensure your teeth remain healthy and strong for future school years to come. Remember to practice good oral hygiene habits at home and in between dental cleanings by brushing teeth twice a day and flossing once a day.

Start the school year off right with healthy teeth! Give our office a call today to schedule an appointment at [phone].
