If you want a strong and pristine oral health and smile, then it’s important to keep up on oral hygiene and visit Dr. Laurin Cardwell every six months for a routine cleaning and exam. There are many advantages to a dental cleaning and exam. In fact, it can:

Deeply clean your teeth: The cleaning treatment involved at your appointment is the only treatment that can remove plaque and tartar from your smile, which are harmful substances that promote and create gum disease. If you keep up with your appointments, you’ll have a greater chance of saving your smile and oral health by preventing dangerous dental issues.

Polish your smile: Once your teeth are all clean, our dental team can remove the surface stains on your teeth and give you a whiter and more attractive smile.

Detect and fix dental issues: During your appointment, Dr. Laurin Cardwell and our dental team will look for any signs of tooth decay, gum disease, or enamel erosion. If we see any trouble areas, we will discuss your treatment options with you. Your dentist will also examine your mouth for oral cancer during your appointment.

As you can see, your six-month checkups can help you keep your smile and oral health in tip-top shape.
