Preventive care is key to keeping your mouth and smile healthy. We recommend that you visit Lockwood Family Dental every six months to receive a dental cleaning and exam. Regular cleanings and exams are among the most important services our dentist and team provide, as they help keep your mouth healthy so that you can avoid problems from cavities, gum disease and other damaging dental conditions. These regular appointments also help our dentist monitor your oral health so that any problems that do develop can be diagnosed and treated quickly.
When you receive a dental cleaning and exam, our dentist and hygienists will:
- Thoroughly clean your teeth to remove plaque and calculus
- Floss between your teeth
- Polish your teeth
- Examine your entire mouth for signs of tooth decay, oral cancer or periodontal disease
We will also take any necessary X-rays and may provide a topical fluoride treatment to strengthen your tooth enamel if we feel it is needed.
While we recommend that you visit us every six months, we may recommend a more frequent schedule of visits as needed. We also encourage you to contact us promptly if you experience a dental emergency, oral injury or pain.
