Brushing your teeth each morning and night as well as making a conscious effort to floss once a day helps remove plaque buildup and lingering food material from your mouth. With consistency, your oral hygiene routine will help reduce your chances of suffering from cavities and gum disease.
It’s also important to have a routine dental checkup administered twice a year by a dentist like Dr. Robin Cropper.
The appointment starts with a professional dental cleaning and polishing treatment performed by one of Dentistry For Today’s dental hygienists. During this phase of the dental checkup, plaque buildup and any traces of hardened tartar will be cleared away from your teeth.
Our dentist will then perform a comprehensive dental exam to detect any early signs of tooth decay, gum disease and other oral health concerns. If she finds a problem, our dentist will present you with an effective treatment plan. In some of these cases she might recommend administering a preventive treatment at the end of the dental checkup.
Our dentist will also perform a basic screening to detect any early signs of oral and pharyngeal cancer. Catching these serious conditions in the early stages can go a long way toward improving your treatment options and success rates.
If you live in the Lawrenceburg, Kentucky, region and you have an oral health concern, you should call 502-839-6828 to schedule a routine dental checkup at Dentistry For Today.
