Brush Up Your Smile’s Health with General Dentistry
Keeping your smile healthy means doing more than just brushing and flossing each day. It means making regularly scheduled check-up visits at your Las Vegas dentist office. What happens at these visits, and why are they so important?
Your Las Vegas dentist will examine your teeth, check for cavities, and make sure that your existing fillings, crowns and dental work are holding up well. We’ll also do things like screen for oral cancer, TMJ disorder, and bite misalignment.
X-rays show us things that are not visible during an exam: areas between the teeth, below the gum lines, and around the roots of the teeth. This helps our Las Vegas dentist to recommend the right preventive and therapeutic care to protect the future of your smile.
Preventive Dental Cleaning
Tartar buildup causes the gums to detach from the teeth. This in turn leads to bone and tooth loss. Regular preventive cleanings help you prevent gum disease, fight gingivitis, root canals and keep your teeth for life.
After your teeth a cleaned, a soft rubber cup is used to polish away the surface stains that have built up between visits. Stain accumulates from things like coffee, tea and wine. Polishing takes just a few minutes but makes a huge difference in the appearance of your teeth!
If you do need any treatment, our Las Vegas dentist will discuss your options with you and give you a custom plan to make your smile healthier.
