The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends dental visits at least twice per year. Regular exams and professional cleanings can help to ensure optimal oral health. At Mint 32 Dentistry, our team consistently provides high-quality dental cleanings and thorough preventive exams. Professional cleanings rid the teeth of harmful plaque and tartar build-up. This is important for preventing tooth decay, periodontal disease, and other oral health issues. Additionally, a professional cleaning by our hygienist may remove some surface stains. This can help keep your teeth looking whiter and brighter.
What Will My Appointment Be Like?
During your examination, we will:
- Evaluate your overall oral health
- Discuss oral hygiene practices and habits
- Check your bite and jaw for any issues
- Evaluate your risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and oral cancer
- Evaluate existing tooth restorations
- Take dental x-rays if necessary
Regular professional dental cleanings and exams are essential for maintaining a healthy mouth and a beautiful smile.
How Often Do I Need To See The Dentist?
We recommend that you get in to see Dr. Morton every six months for dental cleanings and dental exams in Mint 32 Dentistry in Alpharetta, GA. This gives you a break between visits but is still frequent enough to not be surprised by any dental issues that may begin to creep up.
