Preventative care is the foundation of dentistry. The American Dental Association recommends visiting your dentist regularly – usually about twice yearly – for full cleanings, examinations, and consultations for potential treatment. Professional dental cleanings help remove calculus or tartar build-up that is not removable using conventional brushing and flossing. By visiting the dentist regularly, dentists are capable of identifying potential problems that patients are not yet able to see or feel. When you maintain regular preventative dental appointments, you can stave off decay and gum disease, as well as identify the beginnings of oral health problems before they become severe.
At Kifer Park Dental, we use a gentle ultrasonic scaler to remove plaque, calculus, and biofilm on the teeth. Our dentists and hygienists are attentive to your needs and help you maintain your teeth for a healthy smile.
