The health of your teeth and mouth is very important to the well-being of your entire body, and while routine brushing and flossing at home is necessary to keep your smile looking its best, Dr. Tom Holt Family Dentistry’s comprehensive exam and cleaning is essential. The American Dental Association recommends that you visit your dentist every six months to ensure your teeth stay healthy and your smile stays beautiful.
Your hygienist will carefully clean, floss, use a polishing compound and apply fluoride to your teeth. Cleanings usually aren’t painful, but if you have any anxiety about your dental exam, be sure to let your hygienist know. During your exam, we will thoroughly examine your teeth and if there is a need, take X-rays to see what is happening beneath the surface of your teeth and gums.
