Your dental check-up should include your dentist examining your teeth for cavities, gums for gum disease and screen for oral cancer. Along with your dental exam, it is equally important to have your teeth “cleaned” by a Registered Dental Hygienist at your dental check-up. Though you may brush and floss your teeth at home, you can still get “tarter” build-up which can only be removed or “cleaned” by your dental hygienist.
What all is your dental hygienist doing at a typical “teeth cleaning” visit?
Have you been in recently to see your dentist for an exam and your dental hygienist for a cleaning? If not, call your dentist to schedule an exam and cleaning today!
