The importance of dental cleanings and routine examinations
- Posted on: Dec 30 2018
At Galleria Dental Aesthetics, our professionals are here to assist patients in the area of McLean, VA with their oral health care needs. Dentists such as Drs. Chong Lee, Joseph Oh, and Kirsten Lee encourage patients to take a proactive approach to their oral health and wellness by attending routine dental cleanings and examinations at their practice.
Why are dental cleanings important?
Even when patients brush and floss after every meal, they may still leave behind food particles and tartar that can later develop into plaque and bacteria. These can have a harmful effect on one’s oral health and wellness, often leading to problems such as tooth decay and periodontal disease. To avoid these issues, our team encourages patients to be proactive about visiting the dentist for cleanings, while also undergoing examinations at the same time.
What is a dental examination?
Routine examinations at a dental office are done to monitor one’s oral health and wellness and ensure that patients have access to solutions and treatments as soon as possible. Some conditions that can develop can cause permanent damage to the smile that can only be repaired with the help of a dental professional. By being more proactive and less reactive, patients can ensure their teeth, gums, and bone are healthy and well cared for. Dental examinations may include cleanings, physical evaluation of the smile, and even x-rays to see how healthy the teeth are underneath the gum line. Our practice provides all of these solutions for regular and new patients who are taking charge of their oral health. With routine visits, many of our patients can avoid problems of the smile including infections and decay.
