Dental exams and cleanings

Why should you get regular dental exams and cleanings?

Regular dental exams and cleanings are essential for maintaining optimal oral health. Even with excellent at-home oral hygiene, it is still important to see a dentist on a regular basis to ensure that your teeth and gums are healthy and to address any potential issues before they become more serious.

During a dental exam, Dr. Plonski will examine your teeth, gums, and other oral tissues for signs of decay, gum disease, and other oral health issues. They may also use diagnostic tools such as X-rays to detect any issues that may not be visible to the naked eye. Catching and treating these issues early can prevent them from becoming more serious and expensive to treat down the road.

Regular dental cleanings, also known as prophylaxis, are another important aspect of maintaining good oral health. Even with regular brushing and flossing, plaque and tartar can build up on the teeth, which can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. A dentist can remove this buildup during a professional cleaning, which can help prevent these issues and leave your teeth looking and feeling clean and healthy.

At Mr. Dentist, we believe that preventive care is the key to maintaining a healthy smile. We encourage all of our patients to schedule regular dental exams and cleanings and to take an active role in their oral health. Our experienced dental professionals are dedicated to providing personalized, compassionate care to help you achieve and maintain a healthy, beautiful smile for years to come.
