When it comes to matters of health maintenance, few things are as overlooked and underutilized as scheduled professional teeth cleaning. Many people feel that home routines are sufficient to maintain good oral health and hygiene, but just as a vehicle performs best after a tune up, your teeth look—and feel—their best after teeth cleaning and a complete dental exam.
Wake Forest, NC Dentist Dr. Dawn Morehead recommends having the following done on a yearly basis:
- Dental Exam & Teeth Cleaning: While home teeth cleaning is important, too few people take the proper time to brush and floss as they should. As a result, a professional teeth cleaning by a trained dental hygienist is important to ensure your teeth are in optimum condition. After your teeth cleaning, Dr. Morehead will give you a complete dental exam to look for any areas of concern or improvement.
- Dental X-Rays: All new patients will receive an initial full mouth set of dental x-rays to identify previous dental work and to give Dr. Morehead and her team greater insight into your overall dental health. Existing patients receive Bite Wing X-Rays at least once a year.
