Middletown, OH area patients who understand the importance of quality dental care and routine maintenance will want to ask our team of professionals at University Dental about the advantages of deep cleanings and examinations done twice a year. Preventative dental care is the foundation of a healthy smile and better oral wellness, and can be obtained by visiting Drs. Kori, Everhart, and Yi in their Middletown, OH area practice.
What is a Middletown, OH dental deep cleaning and examination?
A deep cleaning is when the dental hygienist will work hard with specialized instruments to thoroughly clean the teeth, removing:
- Calcium build-up
In addition, it may include the application of antibiotics, specifically for patients who have periodontal disease present in their smiles. Periodontal disease is an infection that can have permanent and negative effects on the health of the smile. The earlier it is diagnosed and treated, the more likely the smile’s health will be maintained.
During this same appointment, one of our dentists will be able to evaluate the smile and look for signs of developing problems such as periodontal disease or tooth decay. These issues are best addressed as soon as they are spotted for easier treatment and improved oral health. The examination may include x-rays, allowing the dentists to look underneath the gum line and into the teeth to see possible problems.
How often should a patient visit the dentist?
Traditionally, it is best for patients to visit the dentist every six months for a cleaning and examination. For patients who have been diagnosed with issues such as periodontal disease, every three months may be advised until the condition is under control.
