Teeth CleaningAn Overview
Biannual dental cleanings should be a routine part of your oral health care plan.
Profesional dental cleanings are an important part of maintaining your dental health and preventing oral disease. The American Dental Association and Dr. Kaplan recommend visiting the dentist once every six months for a thorough oral health exam and teeth cleaning. Professional teeth cleanings help control the spread of oral bacteria and can reduce the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health conditions.
Young patients should begin visiting the dentist as soon as their first tooth begins to emerge. Early life dental cleanings can help set your child up for a lifelong healthy smile. Our family dental practice provides care for all phases of oral development for everyone in your family.
Oral Health & Dental Anxiety
Maintaining your oral wellness is an important part of self-care. The condition of your teeth and gums impacts your systemic health. Patients who visit the dentist on a regular basis for teeth cleanings experience lower rates of tooth decay, gum recession, and tooth loss. Regular dental checkups help keep your teeth clean, your gums healthy, and our bite strong.
Many patients avoid routine dental maintenance due to dental anxiety. At the office of Dr. Kapalan, we understand the anxiety and stress that can accompany visiting a dentist. At our dental practice, we work to build a positive, welcoming environment where patients of all ages feel comfortable and confident making decisions about their oral health. We encourage open communication, practice patient education and offers sedation dentistry options for our patient’s optimal comfort.
