Every routine preventive visit is an opportunity to both protect and closely evaluate your smile. These appointments are important for your long-term health. Your cleanings will fight the buildup of tartar and plaque that make you vulnerable to problems with your teeth and gums, while your evaluations provide feedback about the current state of your oral health.
Your initial visit will include a thorough review, including evaluations with our advanced digital imaging technology. In addition to this detailed study, we learn more about your oral health by talking to you and learning about any past issues as well as your earlier experiences with dental care. This initial appointment provides a valuable foundation, one we can use to make every visit a positive one!
Routine appointments include both cleanings and exams, as each are important to preserving your oral health:
- Dental cleanings are performed by your hygienist. These sessions fight plaque and tartar buildup that developed since your last visit. In addition to caring for hard to reach spaces, your hygienist removes the tartar deposits you cannot clean on your own. They also provide feedback to help you make adjustments to your daily hygiene regimen as needed.
- Reviews with your dentist will involve close visual inspections and periodic reviews with imaging technology. These sessions are also your opportunity to talk to your dentist about any recent concerns you have had about your health, as well as a chance to discuss an interest in cosmetic dentistry.
Preventive dental exams and cleanings provide important protection. We can help you sustain a lovely and healthy smile by scheduling you for your semiannual appointments—to learn more or to book your next visit, call My Dentist in Londonderry, NH at 603-965-3407.
