Routine Exams & Cleanings

The basis of sound dental care is routine cleaning and maintenance. As a practice that emphasizes family dentistry, Silverlake Dental Center encourage families to work as a team to make sure routine exams are scheduling and good oral health habits are practiced at home. We make an effort to accommodate scheduling that allows multiple family members to be treated in one visit, if needed.

Why Get Regular Dental Cleanings?

There are many benefits to regular dental exams and cleanings such as:

  • Prevent cavities
  • Stop tooth loss
  • Brighten your smile by removing built-up stains
  • Freshen your breath
  • Boost your overall health by lowering your risk for diseases like heart disease and stroke
  • Save money by protecting your oral health and potentially avoiding costly, extensive procedures by catching issues early

Regular dental visits are important because they help to keep your teeth and gums healthy. During the check-up, we check your overall oral health for any trouble areas. During the cleaning, we will also remove any plaque and tartar buildup and may polish your teeth. We utilize medicated gels along with prescription mouth rinses in problem areas if necessary. Ultrasonic scalers are sometimes used to make the procedure more comfortable and effective as well.

Common Problems We’re on the Lookout For:

  • Missing teeth
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Yellowed or grey-stained teeth
  • Worn-down teeth
  • Sensitivity of teeth to hot and cold
  • Unattractive smile
  • Bleeding gums
  • Receding gums
  • Bad breath
