Cleanings & Checkups
Oral hygiene and preventive dental services are the basis for caring for your teeth and gums. Home oral care paired with routine visits to your dentist can help maintain your oral health and prevent many major dental issues. At Clover Smile Studio, we recommend our patients come in for cleanings and checkups, as a part of our general dental care, at least twice a year to help improve oral hygiene and identify dental issues early.
Brushing and flossing twice a day at home can prevent many dental issues, but it does not remove all plaque and tartar from the teeth. Professional cleanings are needed to reach some areas. These cleanings keep the teeth free from tartar that can hide bacteria and lead to decay or gum infections. Our hygienists carefully clean the teeth and examine the gum tissue for any signs of gum disease, helping to protect your oral and overall health with periodontal treatments, if needed.
Comprehensive Dental Exams
Checkups are another aspect to maintaining excellent oral health. Detecting issues in the early stages reduce the possibility of tooth loss and damage to your teeth. Our dentists provide comprehensive exams to identify cracks, decay, infection and other dental issues. We also offer options like oral cancer screenings during your annual exams, helping you protect your overall health.
During your regular checkups and cleanings, we welcome you to participate in learning more about caring for your oral health. We use intraoral cameras and the latest dental technology to give you an interactive experience when you come to us for your preventive dental care.
Your preventive dental checkups can help you maintain your oral health and reduce your dental care costs. Most dental insurance plans cover checkups and cleanings. Plus, preventive care reduces the chance of major oral health issues. Contact us today to schedule your next checkup at our office in Austin.
