The American Dental Association recommends that everyone have dental checkups at least twice each year. However, if you are not having any problems and you diligently brush and floss your teeth everyday, do you really need to see the dentist that often? We at Allen Creek Family Dentistry say “yes!” These regularly scheduled appointments may be the exact reason why you do not have dental problems. At your regular dental checkup in Marysville, our compassionate, experienced team not only cleans and polishes your teeth, but we also conduct a thorough examination of your oral cavity. These two components of your checkup go a long way toward ensuring your complete oral and dental health.
Dentists and dental assistants are not only concerned about your oral health, but your general health as well. Your twice-yearly dental visits offer an excellent opportunity to review your medical status.
Our doctors and staff comprehensively examine:
At least once each year, we also recommend a series of digital X-rays. These allow our dentists to find decay happening between teeth or just below the surface. X-rays also can reveal tooth infection or other problems in the roots and surrounding bone structure.
Finally, an oral cancer screening is an important part of every examination. We will closely inspect the oral tissue for tell-tale signs of cancerous or pre-cancerous cells. As with many types of cancer, early detection is often the key to successful treatment and recovery.
Whether you use a manual, battery-powered or electric toothbrush at home, nothing beats the clean feeling you have after our dental assistants and doctor professionally cleans your teeth. A special rotary brush is used to individually clean each tooth and remove surface stains so that your smile always looks a little whiter and brighter after teeth cleaning in Marysville. We also take great care to remove plaque and tartar from between the teeth by flossing. Removing bacteria-filled plaque and tartar are essential to helping patients maintain a happy, healthy smile over the years.
