Why Choose MJM Family & Cosmetic Dentistry for Dental Checkups & Cleanings?

Why Are Regular Dental Checkups & Cleanings Important?

Unless physical trauma is involved, most dental problems don’t start out big and obvious. In fact, many can’t be seen without a trained eye and special diagnostic equipment. Without regular dental checkups and cleanings, you may unwillingly be letting an easily solvable dental issue get worse. This is because even if you do everything right as far as your oral hygiene is concerned, there may still be spots you miss or can’t reach to clean them. Our team has special instruments they can use to remove stubborn and hidden plaque and tartar to help your smile sparkle again. This will prevent something like a small cavity from becoming an expensive and painful toothache in the future.

Cleanings are the other half of your typical routine examination and help keep your mouth free of harmful oral bacteria and stubborn calcified tartar. One of our dental hygienists will use special instruments to gently remove hidden or hard-to-reach plaque between your teeth and along the gumline. They’ll also floss your teeth for you and polish your pearly whites to get rid of surface stains, leaving your smile shining once again. Altogether, professional cleanings will significantly reduce your risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and bad breath. So, if you’re ready for a cleaner, healthier smile, contact us today to schedule an appointment!
