Just as you need to take care of your body, you also need to devote the appropriate time and attention to your oral health. The American Dental Association recommends that everyone over the age of one year old visit the dentist at least once a year for a dental exam and professional cleaning. At Pleasant Plains Dental, we are committed to helping our patients achieve a healthy and beautiful smile by maintaining optimal oral health care.
Brushing your teeth and flossing them daily are essential at-home habits that will help keep your teeth clean, but those alone are not enough to protect against damaging bacteria that accumulates in the mouth over time. Between dental cleanings, plaque and tartar begin to build up on the teeth causing damage to the teeth and gums. A professional cleaning and dental exam will be done to thoroughly clean and polish your teeth as well as examine the entire mouth for other problems that may go unnoticed. Dr. Ernst and the entire team at Pleasant Plains Dental are here to provide patients with exceptional dental exams and cleanings in order to promote beautiful smiles and healthy mouths.
Dental Cleanings, Exams & Checkups
Many people mistakenly believe that a dental exam and checkup are overrated and unnecessary – choosing only to visit the dentist when something is “wrong.” However, this misconception can be very dangerous and costly. Dentists are oral health care providers who do more than simply clean the teeth. Dentists examine the entire mouth for signs and symptoms of disease, infection, and cancer. Early diagnosis of any of these can not only save you from losing teeth, but early diagnosis can save your life.
With regular dental cleanings, exams, and checkups, the dental health providers at Pleasant Plains Dental are able to provide the highest quality oral health care available. By choosing to place an emphasis on your own oral health and regularly visiting the dentist, you are helping to ensure the longevity of your health – both oral and overall.
