When was the last time that you went to the dentist’s office for a dental exam? Most health care professionals recommend regular dental visits every six to twelve months. But what exactly happens during these dental cleanings at our Idaho Falls dental office?
At Boyle Family Dental, your oral health is our top priority.
You can expect a warm welcome and quality care from the whole staff when you come in for a dental appointment. Your visit will include a teeth cleaning by a trained dental hygienist.
This will help prepare your teeth to be checked for cavities and other common dental problems such as gum disease (also known as periodontal disease). Your hygienist and dentist will ask you if you’re having any issues with your teeth and gums, whether you’ve been brushing and flossing regularly, and help answer your questions about any dental health problems you may be concerned about.
The Benefits of a Regular Cleaning and Exam
Getting a professional cleaning of your teeth can help prevent cavities, remove uncomfortable and unsightly build up and keep your teeth looking and feeling their very best. Dental exams give our dental staff the opportunity to get an x-ray to see what’s going on beneath the surface. This gives us a detailed view of anything we can treat to prevent damage and decay as well as spot current problems needing treatment.
Every individual matters to us at Boyle Family Dental and we believe that personalized medicine is important. When you come in for a dental cleaning or exam, you get the opportunity to ask questions, learn more about the health of your teeth and gums, and discuss a personalized treatment plan. You’ll get the professional opinion and insight directly from the dentist or other qualified staff members who all have extensive knowledge and training. It is our goal to get or keep your teeth in great shape.
