Is it time for your next dental visit? If you haven’t been to the dentist for years, or you are nervous about visiting the dentist, we can help! At Riverton Dental, we specialize in helping dental patients suffering from dental anxiety and other conditions. Whether you are a new patient or you have been avoiding seeing the dentists for years, it is vital to come into our office as soon as possible. Dental health is important and you never know what is lurking under an old crown or deep within the gums. Our favorite line to say is, “No cavities! See you in six months.”
Why You Need Regular Dental Visits
A number of people avoid visiting the dentist because they are scared, nervous, or just simply do not have the time. The problem with avoiding the dentist is not only what might be happening under your crowns, but what is happening to your mouth in general. Regular dental visits are vital to maintaining healthy teeth and gums.
What Happens at a Dental Cleaning and Examination?
Dental cleanings and examinations are designed to remove plaque and bacteria from around your teeth and from your gums. Plaque and tartar buildup need to be carefully removed from the teeth using dental instruments. Tartar cannot be removed without regular brushing and flossing and can only be removed in our dental office. If plaque and tartar are not allowed to be removed from your teeth and gums, they can lead to a number of oral diseases.
Our dental team will gently clean around your teeth and gums and we will then polish the teeth. Our dentist will check your teeth for any signs of decay and will clean around the gums to prevent gum disease. We will examine your mouth, throat, face, and neck for any signs of trouble that could indicate another problem. Call our Riverton dental office today to schedule your appointment today!
