The first step to a healthy smile is a clean smile, and our dental team at Dr. Jeffrey A. Carson’s dental office provides comprehensive dental cleanings and exams for your benefit. Dental cleanings and exams are designed to help protect your teeth from decay, catch any negative conditions early, help us plan treatment, and share with you all the necessary information so you can understand your smile. We offer dental cleanings and exams during your initial visit to our office and during subsequent checkup appointments. During your dental exam and teeth cleaning in Cleveland, Tennessee, Dr. Carson and one of our dental hygienists will:
- Gently clean, dry, and polish each tooth to a natural shine
- Take a series of dental X-rays to better understand your smile
- Check your smile for any signs of tooth decay or gum disease
- Perform an oral cancer screening
- Examine existing dental restorations for any needed repairs
- Review your dental history and answer any questions you may have
Dental cleanings and exams are essential to the overall health of your smile and also allow our team to make the proper diagnosis and begin planning treatments perfectly suited to your needs. Our experienced dentist recommends visiting us for a dental cleaning and exam at least once every six months. If you are due for a visit, we invite you to call our office and schedule an appointment today. We look forward to caring for your smile!
