Checkups and Cleanings
The American Dental Association recommends that everyone should see the dentist for a regular checkup and cleaning at least once a year, preferably twice a year as part of your general dental care. Checkups and cleanings are extremely important to the health of your entire mouth. Maintaining good oral health is also important to your overall health, and at Gainesville Dental Group we put all of our expertise into helping our patients keep their mouths healthy and beautiful.
Daily brushing and flossing are essential to keeping your teeth clean, but visiting your dentist on a regular basis for a checkup and cleaning is also essential. During your regular visit, one of our dental hygienist will clean and polish your teeth to remove damaging plaque. Your teeth will be thoroughly examined to look for problems with your teeth, gums, tongue, or other tissues inside the mouth. The dental professionals at Gainesville Dental Group are committed to providing our patients with exceptional checkups and cleanings in order to prevent major issues within your mouth. Regular checkup appointments and dental cleanings help to ensure that your mouth is as healthy as possible.
Comprehensive Dental Exams
While some dentists rush through dental exams so that they can see as many patients in a day as possible, at Gainesville Dental Group, we take the time to ensure that all of doctors and our patients understand what is going on with their oral health. Taking the time to look at every area of the mouth in a thorough manner can benefit patients in many ways. Many medical issues are actually present inside the mouth before other symptoms occur – diabetes, leukemia, and cancer are just a few medical conditions that may be discovered by a dentist before symptoms show up elsewhere in the body. By doing a comprehensive dental exam at each dental checkup, we can help to ensure the long-term overall health of our patients.
With regular dental exams our dentists are able to provide the highest quality oral health care available. Contact our dentist office today to schedule an appointment.
