Cleanings & Checkups
Two of the best preventative dental care services you can give your smile are checkups and cleanings. Most kids and adults should see a dentist and dental hygienist twice a year or more for a dental exam and professional cleaning. At Johns Creek Dental Studio, we offer complete cleanings and checkups for all ages at our dental center in Alpharetta, GA.
Clean teeth are the best way to ward off decay and periodontal disease that can destroy the gum tissue and bone in the jaw. The bacteria, plaque and tartar that accumulate on teeth reduce the lifespan of teeth. Personal oral hygiene is vital for removing food, bacteria and plaque daily, but even the most diligent brusher and flosser cannot remove all plaque. Routine dental cleanings can reach small spaces that collect plaque and tartar to keep the teeth and gums healthy. Plus, our hygienist will monitor your gums for signs of periodontal disease. Catching gingivitis or gum disease early and beginning treatment can protect your teeth and overall health.
Comprehensive Dental Exams
It is important to have your teeth and oral cavity examined routinely for any signs of tooth decay, damage or other problems. Our dentist will view x-rays and physically examine your mouth for any issues. If there are oral health concerns, Dr. Parikh will discuss the treatment options and his recommendations. Often, small issues like surface cavities or chipped teeth can be fixed the same day to save you time. Correcting these issues quickly can protect your teeth and save you money in the long run. Small problems are easier and less expensive to fix than dental issues that are allowed to progress.
If you keep up with routine cleanings and checkups, you can avoid many severe dental issues. If you have not seen a dentist or hygienist for more than six months for routine dental care, give us a call at Johns Creek Dental Studio in Alpharetta or book an appointment online. We welcome new patients, and encourage our existing patients to keep up with their regular exams and cleanings for optimum oral health.
