Routine Dental Checkups & Cleanings
Dental checkups and cleanings are the most frequent reasons for visiting the dentist. Even if your teeth and gums are in excellent shape, you need to attend a checkup and cleaning at least once every six months to keep them that way.
What to Expect
During a checkup and cleaning, your dentist and/or hygienist will carefully clean away all traces of plaque and tartar, which harbor oral bacteria that lead to cavities, gingivitis, chronic bad breath, and more. Then, Dr. George will perform a thorough examination of your teeth, gums, and oral structures with the help of X-rays and pictures to check for signs of existing or impending issues.
Maintaining a regular schedule of checkups and cleanings with Dr. George will help you largely avoid the need for more extensive treatments that may become necessary if dental issues become more prominent.
