Checkups and Cleanings in Vista
The primary reason people visit the dentist is for a checkup and cleaning. These biannual appointments serve as the foundation for a lifetime of oral health and a life-long beautiful, and healthy smile. During your appointment, your dentist or hygienist will share information and advice regarding your dental health, and may suggest incorporating specific practices into your home oral-hygiene routine, that will help keep your smile healthy and attractive.
What is a Checkup and Cleaning?
Proper home care is essential to maintaining your dental health. This includes brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and eating a healthy diet. Even when diligently caring for your teeth it is possible to miss areas of stubborn plaque, particularly between your teeth. Over time plaque calcifies, or hardens, into tartar, which can only be removed by a dental professional. Dr. Amiri and our team have the professional expertise and tools to thoroughly clean your teeth, and remove harmful plaque that can lead to cavities and gum disease.
What Are the Benefits of Checkups and Cleanings?
In addition to a thorough cleaning to help prevent dental issues from developing, your visit will include a detailed examination which may consist of annual X-rays. Dr. Amiri will check for early signs of tooth decay, gum disease, and other dental concerns using the most up-to-date dental technology. Attending bi-annual checkups and cleanings, as well as maintaining good oral hygiene at home, will help keep your family’s smiles beautiful, healthy, and free of dental disease.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Everyone should attend a dental checkup and cleaning appointment at least once every six months. Some patients, such as those who currently exhibit tooth decay or gum disease, may need to visit more often to effectively restore their dental health. For young children, regular visits should begin by the age of three, or shortly thereafter.
