Our friendly dentists provide a comprehensive range of dental services for the entire family, including routine cleaning and preventative services.
Your Regular Cleaning and Checkup
The key to staying on top of your oral health is making regular appointments at your dentist’s office. At West County Dental, we provide preventative services to help our patients maintain good oral hygiene, prevent dental diseases, and keep their gums healthy. We recommend that each member of your family make a visit to our office for a routine cleaning and checkup every six months. We offer a variety of sedation options to help ensure that your visit is as comfortable as possible.
Our Cleaning and Preventative Services
- When you visit us for the first time, we will begin by doing a set of X-rays of your mouth to check your current oral health. We will also review your medical history for anything that may have an impact on your dental health.
- Then, we will do a thorough examination of your teeth and gums, including checking for tooth decay and signs of gum disease. We will also check your biting, chewing, and swallowing patterns to make sure that they are normal.
- Next, we will do a professional dental cleaning, removing tartar and plaque buildup from your teeth. We will polish your teeth when necessary to keep the surfaces smooth.
- We also offer fluoride rinses to reduce the risk of tooth decay between professional cleanings. For children, we can also provide sealants to help protect developing teeth from cavities.
- If you require any further treatment before your next cleaning, you can make an appointment at our office before leaving. We also offer same-day crowns and dental implants for those who would like to complete their treatment in a single visit.
