Teeth Cleanings and Examinations

One of the best ways to protect your smile and overall health is to visit Dr. Hall and your team at Uptown Dental & Orthodontics every six months for a preventive teeth cleaning and checkup.

During preventive appointments, we educate patients about their dental health to avoid painful and costly problems that sometimes occur when teeth are neglected. We’ll also help you create the most effective home care routine for your smile and dental health.

What to Expect During Your Dental Exam?

When you meet your Phoenix dentist for the first time, she performs an examination and spends time getting to know you so she can understand your dental history and your goals for your smile. This way, she can ensure that she’s partnering with you to help you meet your smile goals.

When you visit Dr. Hall for your six-month dental exam, you may be surprised at how much you enjoy yourself!

During your bi-annual checkups, Dr. Hall screens you for problems like gum disease and oral cancer because early detection of these concerns makes all the difference in a good prognosis. She’ll also check the health of your current restorations to let you know as early as possible if there’s any wear or breakdown to be concerned about. This allows you to proactively treat any issues before they become more significant problems.

What Happens During Your Teeth Cleaning?

A teeth cleaning in Phoenix, AZ, helps to keep your smile problem-free. Removing any excess plaque and bacteria you might’ve missed at home enables you to avoid the build-up that can cause problems like gum disease or cavities.

Your dental hygienist is also an excellent resource for teaching proper brushing and flossing techniques to ensure you’re making the most of your home care routine. They can also recommend products like the most effective electric toothbrush or which antibacterial mouth rinse is the best to protect your smile.

Preventive teeth cleanings and exams help protect your smile and your wallet!

Successfully Managing Gum Disease

When you visit our Phoenix dental office regularly, we can detect gum disease in its early stage, called gingivitis. However, for many patients, a thorough professional teeth cleaning and improvements to their home care routine are all it takes to reverse gum disease.

Unfortunately, periodontitis or advanced gum disease is not reversible. But we can help you successfully manage it with a deep cleaning called scaling and root planing, laser gum therapy to eliminate infected tissues, and additional teeth cleanings throughout the year to keep your condition under control.
