Cleanings & Checkups – Reno, NV
Achieve Optimal Oral Health
Brushing and flossing are your first line of defense against cavities and gum disease; however, they aren't enough to keep your mouth healthy. The American Dental Association recommends a cleaning and checkup with your dentist every 6 months. At Village Dental, we will keep your smile clean and healthy using a personalized treatment plan.
Why are Regular Dental Checkups & Cleanings Important?
Routine dental appointments are equally important as brushing and flossing. Plaque and tartar can accumulate in hard-to-reach areas that only a trained dental professional can remove. Not to mention, your dentist will provide preventive services to stop common issues from occurring, like decay. You'll also benefit from the power of early detection to treat anything concerning while it's still minor.
Researchers report that you can save $50 on restorative fees for every $1 of preventive care. You'll save money down the road while keeping your mouth healthy. With oral health and general well-being connected, you'll invest in optimal wellness.
If you have dental insurance, you can use your benefits for preventive dentistry. You can have a cleaning and checkup twice a year with 100% of the expenses covered after a co-pay.
What to Expect During a Dental Checkup
Your dental hygienist will use special instruments to clean and polish your teeth. They'll learn more about your oral hygiene habits and provide recommendations for any improvements. Your hygienist is also the first person to get a good look at your mouth. They can relay anything concerning to your dentist to have another set of eyes monitoring your oral health.
If necessary, your hygienist will provide other preventive services, like fluoride treatment. They will also take X-rays for your dentist to review.
What to Expect During a Dental Cleaning
After your teeth are cleaned, your dentist will review your X-rays to see if any issues are hiding below the surface. They'll take a good look at your mouth, oral structures, bite, and neck to ensure everything is in tip-top order. Your dentist will also perform a quick oral cancer screening.
Based on the results of your examination, your dentist will explain if any treatments are needed. They will discuss their findings and answer any questions. Your dental team will help you make informed decisions for your oral health using personalized solutions.
