Preventive dental care can minimize the time you need to spend at the dentist and help protect your smile and overall health. Daily cleaning of your teeth and gums is important, as are the routine visits for checkups and cleanings. Our team at Buford Family Dental offers comprehensive exams and thorough cleanings to help our patients maintain healthy smiles and to catch oral health issues early for quick treatment.
Your daily brushing and flossing are essential for maintaining your oral health, but it should be bolstered by trips to the dentist for a professional cleaning. There are areas that bacteria can hide, creating plaque and tartar that is not removed through home oral hygiene. We recommend that most patients come in for at least two cleanings a year to maintain clean, healthy teeth and gums. Our hygienist will provide you with a thorough cleaning – not only do your teeth feel and look great after a cleaning, this is the best way to prevent gum disease.
Comprehensive Dental Exams
Cleaning your teeth can help maintain your oral health, but your dental exam ensures that any dental or oral health issues are identified as quickly as possible. Small pockets of decay or cracks in the teeth can be easily fixed at our office, often the same day as your checkup. However, if you skip your annual exams, those small problems can be more extensive, resulting in larger, more expensive dental issues.
If you want to keep your smile healthy and your dental costs low, adhering to a regular schedule of cleanings and checkups is important. Plus, most dental insurance plans cover preventive checkups and cleanings 100 percent, making it the most affordable way to maintain your oral health. Contact Buford Family Dental today to schedule your next routine visit for a cleaning and checkup at our office in Buford.
