Brushing and flossing are absolutely essential to maintaining your oral health, but they simply aren’t enough to meet all of your dental needs. Your teeth have many hard to reach surfaces your home tools just aren’t designed to clean, and they can accumulate harmful plaque and bacteria deposits that can develop into cavities and gum disease. Left untreated, these oral health problems can easily lead to other issues that can negatively impact your overall health.
At Pearl Care Dental, our mission is to protect your oral and total health so you can have both a beautiful, healthy smile and a strong body, too. To do this, we provide thorough preventive services such as checkups and cleanings. These simple treatments are the cornerstones of dentistry, and they allow us to keep your teeth problem-free and drastically reduce your risk for a myriad of related health problems.
When you come in for a standard preventive appointment, one of our skilled hygienists will use a variety of sophisticated tools to clean and polish your teeth, specifically targeting those problem areas we mentioned above. Then, your dentist will thoroughly examine your teeth, gums, as well as take some x-rays. This will give them a full understanding of the state of your dental health, as well as give them the tools they need to formulate a personalized treatment plan to address any issues you have now or may develop in the future. By putting a lot of our efforts into prevention, we’ll help you avoid most dental problems in the first place.
We recommend that patients of all ages should have at least 2 checkups and cleanings per year, or 1 every six months. If you’re due for a checkup, we would be honored for you to put your oral and overall health in our hands. You can trust that we’ll provide only the highest quality care.
