By far the most common and frequent dental care you will ever receive is twice annual teeth cleaning and routine dental x-rays. Regular teeth cleaning, (dental prophylaxis) performed at your dentist’s office helps keep your teeth and mouth healthy.
Dental x-rays are necessary periodically so that the dentist can see what is going on with your teeth below the surface. Are they cracked or damaged? Are your wisdom teeth coming in below your other teeth (impacted wisdom teeth)?
Teeth cleaning and routine dental x-rays are considered preventative care, and some dental insurance plans will cover them 100%. Other dental plans will cover a greater portion of the costs than they might for other procedures. This is because the insurance companies know that regular visits to your dentist catch small problems before they become costly big ones. Our office can add fluroride for all ages, which reduces sensitivity.

Oral hygiene is what dentists call keeping your teeth and mouth clean. Good oral hygiene includes brushing your teeth, gums and mouth at least twice a day (after each meal is even better), as well as flossing or using a special dental pick to get debris out from between your teeth.
Taking good care of your teeth and gums can help you prevent cavities, gum disease and other dental problems in the years to come. Starting your child off with good dental hygiene habits will protect their smile, and your wallet as well!
