It’s about time for your routine dental appointment with our dentist and team. You may be wondering what to expect at your six-month appointments. We are more than happy to give you a rundown of your upcoming cleaning and exam appointment.
Professional Dental Cleaning
When you come in to our office, your teeth will be professionally cleaned of plaque and tartar. These cleanings help keep your gum tissues healthy and happy. Your teeth will then be flossed and polished.
Dr. Bruce Howard will then examine each of your teeth and your gums for signs of tooth decay, gum disease and other dental issues. Our dentist will look for visible signs of decay as well as any indication that the tooth enamel has softened. To determine the health of your gums, our dentist will measure the pockets between your teeth and gums.
Depending on your age, dental health, and other factors, Dr. Bruce Howard may decide to take dental X-rays during your appointment. Dental X-rays help us to see anything that is not easily apparent to the naked eye, like the tooth roots.
We encourage you to contact our office at 801-546-2413 today for more information about your upcoming dental cleaning in Kaysville, Utah, and to schedule your next visit.
