While brushing and flossing your teeth is very important to your dental health, it is also imperative that you visit your dentist regularly. Dr. Richard Cavallaro and our team recommend that you and your child come in for a professional dental cleaning in Lemon Grove, California, at least once every six months. These appointments allow us to thoroughly clean your teeth and to examine your gums and teeth for any issues or potential issues. In this way, dental issues can be treated while they are still minor. Other dental problems can be avoided altogether.
When you come in for your visit, our hygienist will first use a small, metal tool to remove all plaque and tartar from your teeth. Then the hygienist will floss between each of your teeth. Then your teeth will be polished to give them extra shine.
Our dentist will examine your gums and each of your teeth thoroughly. They will check your gums for signs of gum disease and other issues. An oral cancer screening will then be performed. They will decide whether or not you need dental X-rays taken.
If any dental problems were found, our dentist will discuss them with you and go over your treatment options. Of course, the final decision about your treatment plan is yours to make.
We invite you to contact Lemon Grove Dental Group, Inc at 619-569-1925 to learn more about teeth cleaning in Lemon Grove, California, and to schedule your next visit.
