Preventive Dental Exams and Cleanings

Achieving and maintaining a healthy smile requires two things: conscientious brushing and flossing at home and exams and teeth cleanings at our Crown Point dental office every six months. 

These guidelines set forth by the American Dental Association haven’t changed in decades because they work. At-home oral hygiene—along with a nutritious diet and lifestyle—lays the foundation for a healthy smile; checkups every six months allow us to routinely monitor your oral health. 

Dental Exams Every Six Months

The best time to see your dentist is before a problem like a toothache develops. The goal of prevention is to catch and treat problems like cavities and gum disease before they cause pain or damage your oral health. 

It’s easy to fill a small cavity or treat gingivitis, but the longer these problems go on, the more complex and costly treatment becomes.

That is why every dental exam at our Crown Point, IN dental office includes:

  • Checking each tooth for signs of cavities
  • Taking digital x-rays if needed
  • Screening for oral cancer
  • Checking the condition of existing dental work

All the results of your checkups become part of your patient record and give us a picture of your oral health on an ongoing basis. 

Teeth Cleanings to Prevent Gum Disease

Six-month teeth cleanings with a skilled dental hygienist remove plaque that lingers in tight spaces—like between teeth—and are hard to reach with a toothbrush. And no matter how well you brush, you can’t remove bacteria-filled tartar (hardened plaque) because it requires specialized instruments and a skilled hygienist who’s trained to use them.
