At Wells W. Wagner Family Dental, we believe regular cleanings and dental exams are vital to keeping your oral health on track. Our team uses the utmost care and precision in examining your teeth, and we keep meticulous personalized records. They help us notice when irregularities pop up so we can make sure you receive the right treatment fast.
Why Are Exams Necessary?
Depending on your age and general health, dental exams, which involve multiple tests, are typically scheduled once every six months. First, we take a look at the surfaces of your teeth, checking for signs of decay. If teeth are still developing, we examine the alignment and make sure everything is on track.
We also take X-rays that tell us how your teeth look on the inside to see if you have cavities or infected areas that aren’t visible to the naked eye.
Regular dental exams are necessary when you want to take a proactive approach to your oral health. They help prevent major issues before they begin.
The Benefits of Regular Professional Cleanings
Along with regular dental exams, professional cleaning is another important part of preventive care. A professional cleaning before your exam helps us get a more accurate picture of the state of your teeth.
Since your teeth come into contact with food and drink throughout the day, they’re bound to have sugar and food particles coating their surfaces, contributing to bacterial buildup on the enamel. Brushing your teeth twice a day helps to remove some of this, but when plaque is left behind, it turns into tartar, a harder substance that cannot be removed by simple brushing.
During a regular cleaning, the dentist will gently scrape away tartar buildup, leaving your teeth cleaner and whiter. Since excessive tartar leads to decay, getting regular cleanings ― once every six months ― can help reduce the risk of cavities.
We’re Focused on Your Comfort
From taking an X-ray to eradicating tartar, our team is completely focused on the job at hand, especially when it comes to keeping you relaxed throughout. Your teeth, gums and soft tissues can be sensitive, so a gentle touch is ideal.
