Schedule Your Dental Checkup and Cleaning

Did you  know that in 2009 there were over 830,000 visits to emergency rooms in the United States for preventable dental conditions? Those who visit their dentist every six months have significantly better oral health than those who do not. With regular check ups and a good hygiene routine, many costlier procedures are never needed, saving you money in the long run and allowing you to enjoy healthier teeth for a longer period of time.

You may be wondering- Why not stick to just my at home care? While a good home care routine is absolutely necessary to maintain healthy teeth and gums, a cleaning by a certified dental hygienist will always be more thorough than your home care routine due to the special tools used to get rid of tartar and plaque. Plus, it is easier for the hygienist to see back into the hard to reach areas of the mouth to clean spots you normally miss.

The biannual check up and cleaning recommended by the American Dental Association is covered by insurance, but if you do not have insurance, it doesn't hurt to call and ask for an estimate or appointment. So if you have missed your six month cleaning, call and schedule an appointment today! If you're curious as to what's going on during your checkups and cleanings, visit our page for more specifics.
