Cleanings & Checkups

One of the key components of maintaining a healthy, beautiful smile is preventive dental care. Personal oral hygiene is very important, but you still need routine dental exams and professional dental cleanings for optimal dental health. Kids, teens and adults all need regular checkups for optimal dental health. Our team at Envision Dental is here to help patients of all ages keep their smiles healthy with dental cleanings and checkups at our office in Marietta.

Bacteria are part of the natural environment in the mouth, but they can lead to oral health issues like tooth decay and gum diseases. Tooth decay can destroy the tooth enamel, dentin and weaken the tooth structure, and gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss. Dental cleanings twice or more times per year can help remove plaque and tartar caused by bacteria, often in areas that are difficult to reach when brushing and flossing. Routine cleanings can help prevent serious dental issues and have the benefit of keeping your teeth whiter for aesthetic purposes.

Comprehensive Dental Exams

Even those with good oral hygiene and regular dental cleanings need routine checkups or exams. Our dentists and hygienists perform comprehensive exams of the teeth and gums to check for any signs of decay, gum disease, tooth damage or other oral health issues. Detecting oral problems early helps our patients get the treatment they need before a small cavity or gingivitis become bigger issues like infected teeth or periodontitis.

Routine dental cleanings and checkups should be part of your family’s wellness program. In most cases, dental exams and cleanings are covered by dental insurance. To schedule your next dental checkup, contact us at Envision Dental to book your appointment. Call our dental center in Marietta to schedule cleanings and checkups for the whole family.
