Without question, routine dental cleanings and exams are two of the most important preventive treatments that our dentists provide. We recommend that you visit Modern Dental at least twice each year to receive a dental cleaning and exam.
When you visit our office, Dr. Morley, Dr. Hamel and our hygienists will meet with you one-on-one to provide individualized care. We will:
- Thoroughly clean your teeth to remove plaque and tartar (calculus)
- Floss your teeth
- Polish your teeth
- Carefully examine your teeth and supporting structures for tooth decay, periodontal disease and other problems
We may also take digital X-rays or use other imaging technology to ensure that all areas of your mouth are healthy and free from decay and disease.
Receiving regular, preventive care is essential to maintaining good oral health. Even if your oral hygiene routine at home is perfect, there is no replacement for professional care. By visiting our dentists regularly, you can be sure that any damaging dental problems will be diagnosed and treated before they cause damage to your smile and overall oral health.
