Cleanings & Checkups

Many people are unaware of the connection between good physical health and good oral hygiene. Here at Dr. C Family Dentistry, we are committed to helping you achieve your best oral health by educating you and your family members about the necessity of good oral hygiene & dental care services and how it helps you to stay healthy. Most people are aware of the problems caused by neglected cavities. Just about everyone knows someone who has suffered from the discomfort of a toothache. Less well known are the physical ailments that have been linked to poor oral hygiene such as stroke, type 2 diabetes, pregnancy and birth problems, and cardio vascular disease to name a few.

At Dr. C Family Dentistry, we provide comprehensive dental exams, professional cleanings and regular dental checkups to help you keep up your oral health. Prevention is always the best way to keep problems at bay. Catching dental issues before they have a chance to get serious is always the second best route to take next to prevention. Checkups help ensure that dental troubles don’t make it to advanced stages. Dental cavities and gum disease can develop serious complications if neglected and not handled in their earliest stages.

Thinking that regularly flossing and brushing your teeth is enough to keep them in good shape is misleading. While this is a necessary and critical part of your general oral hygiene, so is getting your teeth cleaned professionally at least annually. Professional cleaning takes care of the plaque and tartar buildup that is the precursor to gum disease. It can build up in places that are difficult for you to clean; however, our hygienists have special instruments just for that purpose. They can get to areas that you are unable to reach with normal brushing and flossing.

Comprehensive Dental Exams

Ensuring that your mouth is in the best shape it can be is what we do at Dr. C Family Dentistry. If it is not, we do all we can to get you there. Your comprehensive dental exam will determine if you have cavities that need to be filled, gum problems that need to be addressed and any other oral issues that may be present or on the verge of surfacing. We also provide screening for oral cancers. More dentists are doing this life saving check, yet only about 20% of the population gets this simple, painless exam. We take your oral health seriously at Dr. C Family Dentistry. Contact us today to schedule an appointment for your dental checkup and cleaning.
