Here at Mountain View Dental, we believe highly in preventative dentistry. Preventative dentistry, along with your daily brushing and flossing, also includes a visit to the dentist twice a year for regular cleanings and exams. If you are in Alamogordo, New Mexico, and are looking for an amazing dentist and staff that care about your oral health and preventing problems, Mountain View Dental is the place for you.
Professional dental cleanings are needed for everyone of all ages to maintain a clean and healthy smile. Cleanings for adults and children have generally the same process. Using a special toothbrush and toothpaste, your teeth are cleaned more intensely and thoroughly by a member of our staff. This professional cleaning is used to clean off the plaque and possible stains that may have appeared that you wouldn’t be able to take off on your own. Because the cleaning is so thorough, professional cleaning is only needed every six months.
Receiving dental cleaning every six months will significantly help prevent any decay or problems from occurring. Even though this cleaning helps prevent problems, it is still important for patients to continue brushing and flossing at home.
Dental Exams are usually performed every six months during your general cleaning to make sure that no problems are occurring. In an exam, the dentist will look at your teeth to examine your overall oral health. Also checking your bite and your gums to see if there is any risk of gum disease. X-rays will also be taken to check everything in the mouth that is non visible. From an x-ray the dentist will be able to check on the roots of your teeth and new teeth and if they are growing properly.
