Don’t Put Off Your Dental Exam

Don’t Put Off Your Dental Exam

No matter your age, the team at Harris Dental in Phoenix AZ encourages you to have regular cleanings and checkups. Along with daily brushing and flossing, it’s the best way to stay on top of your dental health.

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER

Sometimes people put off their next checkup because they don’t think they’re all that important. But trust us: exams are one of the best way to prevent dental problems down the road. Most checkups begin with a cleaning from the hygienist. We’ll scrape any tartar from your teeth. Tartar is hardened plaque, and you can’t get it off with a toothbrush and floss. That’s one of the reasons brushing twice a day is so important: it helps prevent plaque buildup! Next we’ll polish your teeth with a gritty toothpaste. This is pretty harsh stuff, and it does a great job removing surface stains from your teeth. Sometimes patients wonder if they can get something like it for use at home. The trouble with that is that it’s just too abrasive to use every day.

THE CHECKUP

After cleaning, it’s the dentist’s turn. We’ll look for any new cavities that may have appeared since your last visit. We might take X-rays, although this is not done at every visit. We’ll examine your gums, too, for any signs of gum disease. Finally, we’ll look at your tongue, throat, face and and head, and your neck. We’re checking for swelling or redness, or any signs of cancer. At Harris Dental in Phoenix AZ our services include general and restorative dentistry. Patients from Queen Creek, Scottsdale, and Mesa also come to us for dental implants and cosmetic optionsContact us today! CONTACT HARRIS DENTAL:
