Dental Hygiene Near You
Maintaining good oral hygiene is vital to lasting oral health. This usually means brushing your teeth at least twice a day, flossing at least once a day, and seeing your dentist for a routine exam and cleaning every six months.
These regular dental appointments are the key to maintaining great oral health and to preserving your radiant smile. At Greg Campbell, DDS, we offer comprehensive dental exams and cleanings to ensure the health of your teeth and gums. We also use these exams to check for signs and symptoms of larger health issues.
A routine examination usually includes the following:
- X-rays to determine tooth and jaw health and to detect tumors or cysts
- Oral cancer screenings to check for red or white patches or sores, lumps, and other abnormalities that are indicative of oral cancer
- Gum evaluations to check for periodontitis and other gum and bone issues
- Tooth examinations to check for decay and to monitor previous restorations like crowns and fillings
Your preventative cleanings include the following:
Plaque is a sticky film made from food debris, fluid, and bacteria that causes gum inflammation and tooth decay.
Tartar is a hardened build-up of plaque that causes advanced periodontal disease. It can only be removed by a dentist.
Polishing can remove stains and brighten your smile.
