The importance of dental exams and cleanings

Your dental health is maintained with more than just brushing and flossing. Dr. Colleen Williamson of Grand Dental Arts in Toms River, New Jersey encourages patients to fully understand the steps needed to keep the smile healthy and beautiful. Routine care, including deep cleanings and dental evaluations, are also a part of taking care of the smile, ensuring better oral health and wellness. With dental exams and thorough cleanings, patients can expect their dental health to be preserved and protected. Additionally, any early signs of trouble can be spotted soon enough for effective intervention.

What can I expect from an initial dental exam and cleaning?

The first part of the new patient dental exam will be a visual examination of the teeth and gums. Our doctors will look for any signs of concern, such as tooth decay or gum disease. They will also check your bite and jaw alignment to ensure proper function. Once the examination is complete, the cleaning can begin with the dental hygienist

The teeth will be thoroughly cleaned using special tools only available to medical professionals. Plaque and tartar buildup will be removed from the surfaces of the teeth, both above and below the gum line. The teeth will then be polished for a sparkling finish.

Why are routine dental exams and cleanings important?

Routine dental exams and cleanings are important for several reasons.

  • First, they allow Dr.Williamson and Dr. Ijaz to spot any problems early on before they become more serious. This can save you time, money, and needless discomfort down the road.
  • Second, routine cleanings remove plaque and tartar buildup that can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. By removing this buildup before it causes problems, you can help keep your smile healthy for years to come.
  • Finally, routine dental exams and cleanings give you a chance to ask us any questions you may have about your oral health. Our team of professionals can offer advice on everything from at-home care to major dental procedures.
