Cleaning and Checkups
Many major dental problems can be avoided with routine teeth cleaning and checkups. One of the best investments you can make for your oral health is preventive dental care. Our team at Sapphire Creek Dental encourages patients to come in for their routine dental cleanings and checkups to prevent painful and expensive oral health issues.
Most dental insurance plans cover up to 100% of preventive services like cleanings and checkups. These services are beneficial to help maintain oral health by removing accumulated plaque and tartar. Checkups can also catch dental issues early before they become larger problems. Kids, teens and adults of all ages should have a checkup at least once a year. Cleanings may be needed twice or more times per year, depending on your oral health.
Comprehensive Dental Exams
Cleanings are vital to help prevent decay and disease. While home oral hygiene does reduce plaque and tartar on teeth, hard-to-reach areas can be missed. Professional cleaning removes tartar buildup that can lead to decay or gum disease. This can protect your oral and overall health, as gum disease can put you at higher risk for serious health concerns like stroke and type 2 diabetes.
Dental exams are also important. Dr. Gomez provides a thorough exam to check for any decay, tooth damage or other issues. Catching issues early can reduce the extent of dental treatments you may need, saving you time and money. We use advanced technology, like intraoral cameras, to give you a digital view of your teeth and gums during your exam. If any repairs or dental treatments are needed, Dr. Gomez will discuss a treatment plan and your options.
