About twice a year, it is important to go into the dentist for a checkup and professional cleaning. We can do a lot at home with a toothbrush, some floss, and a good rinse, but there are some things that can only be kept on top of with the special tools your dentist uses.
What is a Dental Checkup and Cleaning?
This is a routine appointment where the dentist will take a look to make sure your mouth is healthy. X-rays may be used to get a good look at any cavities or teeth that need to be fixed. Your teeth will be professionally cleaned, and sometimes the dentist may use a special paste that helps prevent the formation of cavities.
