The American Dental Association recommends that you get a dental cleaning twice per year and an exam at least once per year. At Christensen Dental, we use the latest technology to conduct cleanings and exams.
During the average cleaning visit, our dental hygienist will remove plaque and tartar from the teeth and gums. Despite most individual’s best efforts, there are certain difficult-to-reach areas that your toothbrush can’t touch. Professional cleaning is required to reach these places.
After a visit to our office for a thorough cleaning, your mouth and teeth will look and feel great. This procedure also smooths teeth surfaces so plaque is less likely to accumulate in the future.
During your dental exam, the dentist will do a visual inspection of the health of your teeth, ensuring that no area goes unchecked. Gum health and tooth decay/cavities are just a couple of the things they are looking for. X-rays will also be taken to ensure that nothing is being missed below the surface. We offer the latest x-ray technology, ensuring that we get a “clear picture” of your dental health.
