Every smile needs routine dental care for optimum health. While at-home dental care is important, it is most effective when combined with routine visits to the dentist. Dental cleanings and checkups are basic dental care services we recommend for all patients. Most people should see their dentist every six months for cleanings and exams. Our dental team at SmileBuilders, Inc. can perform your routine checkups and cleanings for all the members of your family at our dental offices in Canton, Byram, and Lucedale,MS.
Daily brushing and flossing are crucial to removing plaque and bacteria from your teeth and gums, but you still need professional dental cleanings twice a year. Our dental hygienist performs a thorough exam of your gums to check for any signs of gingivitis or periodontal disease, which is the most common cause of tooth loss. Dental cleanings are required to remove tartar from teeth and plaque from hard-to-reach areas. Routine cleanings can improve the appearance and health of your smile; most dental insurance covers routine cleanings 100% as preventive dental care.
Comprehensive Dental Exams
The second aspect of routine dental visits is a comprehensive dental exam. Dr. Preston Cobbins is an experienced dentist that utilizes the most advanced dental technology to perform scans on your teeth to identify any oral health issues. Dental exams can detect early stages of many oral problems, from the beginnings of decay to tooth structure damage or disease. We also offer oral cancer screenings that can be performed with your checkup to protect your overall health. You will receive a personalized treatment plan after your exam. We put an emphasis on patient education to help you understand the importance of achieving optimum oral health.
Routine dental cleaning and checkups are essential for maintaining a healthy smile for you and the members of your family. They can also help lower your dental costs by preventing gum disease and catching oral health issues in the early stages.
