How can you keep your teeth and mouth healthy? By visiting Premier Dental in Knoxville regularly for checkups and teeth cleaning. This does 2 things: keeps your mouth healthy, and saves you money in the long run by helping to avoid costly problems.
Your Regular Dental Cleaning
Your dental hygienist may refer to your 6-month cleaning as “prophylaxis,” or “prophy.” Regular dental hygienist appointments are for long-term maintenance of good oral health.
If you keep your scheduled appointment, you have a much better chance of maintaining healthy teeth and gums. And, your teeth will feel clean!
Each teeth cleaning appointment includes a thorough cleaning of your teeth and gums. It may also include an oral cancer screening if you are at risk.
Many patients also receive a fluoride treatment to strengthen and protect their teeth. This is often presented as an option, and it is one we highly recommend.
