Dental Cleaning & Checkup in Jefferson, GA
· How often should I get a dental cleaning and/or checkup?
A regular teeth cleaning and checkup should be done at least twice a year – more frequent visits may be suggested depending on the status of your periodontal health.
· What happens at a dental cleaning appointment?
Our skilled hygienists will remove plaque and tartar from your teeth, which is a preventative measure to protect your teeth from developing cavities. A buildup of plaque and tartar can lead to bacterial growth that, if left undisturbed, could lead to periodontal (gum) disease.
· Do you offer oral cancer screening?
Yes. We administer oral cancer screenings via VELscope Oral Screening. This procedure is done in office and is painless and always complimentary for our patients. To see the VELscope in action, click here.
· Do you give each patient a free toothbrush and toothpaste at cleaning appointments?
Yes we do. We even throw in dental floss and a sample size of mouth rinse :) Our adult patients are given a manual toothbrush along with the above. For our patients under 18 years of age, they are each given a battery operated toothbrush. We know how hard it can be to have a child properly brush their teeth. We have found that when children brush their teeth with a battery operated toothbrush, more plaque and tartar is removed. Our dream is to have all our young patients make it to adulthood cavity free!
