Dental cleanings and exams are among the most important preventive treatments provided at Landry Family and Orthodontic Dentistry. The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that you receive a dental cleaning and exam every six months. This helps our dentist and team monitor your oral health and quickly diagnose and treat any problems that may be developing in your mouth.
When you visit our office for your dental cleaning and exam, our dentist and hygienist will:
- Thoroughly clean your teeth. This removes plaque and tartar, and helps prevent harmful bacteria from colonizing in your mouth.
- Floss between your teeth.
- Polish your teeth.
- Examine your entire mouth for signs of any damaging dental conditions, such as tooth decay, periodontal disease and oral cancer.
- Take any necessary X-rays to further evaluate your oral health.
We may recommend that you visit our office more frequently if you are diagnosed with periodontal disease or another condition that requires additional treatment.
If you experience a dental emergency, an oral injury or persistent dental pain, we encourage you to contact our office and make arrangements to meet with Dr. Cynthia Landry as soon as possible.
