Even if you are the world’s best brusher, you can’t remove all the harmful plaque and tartar from your teeth. For that, you really need to see our dentist at least every six months. If you are due (or overdue) for your routine dental visit, we would love to see you at Camden Dental Care. Call our office today at 916-686-2888 to schedule your dental cleaning and exam in Elk Grove, California, with Dr. Raju Dhariwal.
Of all the preventive treatments we provide at our office, dental cleanings and exams are perhaps the most important and certainly a vital foundation for good dental health. When you visit our team for a checkup, we will clean all surfaces and angles of your teeth completely and closely examine your mouth and smile for any potential problems.
Here is what you can expect during your cleaning and exam:
- We will remove any plaque or tartar from the surfaces of your teeth. Plaque and tartar can lead to tooth decay and periodontitis if they are allowed to sit on the teeth for too long.
- We will floss between your teeth, and we may polish them to remove stains and smooth out roughness.
- We will examine your teeth and mouth for any signs of problems or diseases that may need treatment.
- We may take X-rays of your smile to help us detect or diagnose any problems.
Maintaining regular visits with our dental team will help keep your oral health at its best at all times. Regular care can help prevent the development of cavities and gum disease, and other oral health concerns can be detected in early stages so that they can be treated promptly.
We recommend that you schedule a dental cleaning and exam with our team every six months. If we detect more pressing problems with your smile, we may ask that you visit us more often. Please give us a call if you would like to schedule your dental visit!
