Dental cleanings and exams are among the most important services provided here at Rockland Pediatric Dental and Orthodontics. They are crucial for patients of all ages and play an important role in helping you avoid problems such as tooth decay and gum disease to keep your smile healthy.

What Happens During a Routine Dental Hygiene Visit?

During this visit, our dentist and team will:

  • Thoroughly clean your teeth to remove plaque and tartar (also known as calculus)
  • Floss and polish your teeth
  • Examine your smile for signs of any developing problems
  • Take any necessary X-rays for further evaluation
  • Discuss your oral hygiene routine and make recommendations for improving it as needed
  • Potentially review your diet with you

We recommend that you visit our office every six months to receive this routine preventive care; sometimes our dentist may recommend a more frequent schedule of visits depending on your individual needs.

The Importance of Preventive Care

Preventive dental care is vital to your continued oral health. Preventive treatments are designed to help keep your mouth and smile healthy so that you can maintain your natural teeth and avoid the need for more extensive and invasive care. By keeping regular appointments for hygiene and exams, you allow our team to monitor your oral health, increase the chances that developing problems (such as cavities, gum disease and oral cancer, to name only a few) will be diagnosed early, and save time, money and discomfort down the road. Remember, the greater care you take in maintaining your oral health, the greater your chances are of avoiding dental problems and maintaining your natural teeth throughout your life.
