What will my appointment be like?
During your examination, we will:
- Evaluate your overall oral health
- Discuss oral hygiene practices and habits
- Check your bite and jaw for any issues
- Evaluate your risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and oral cancer
- Evaluate existing tooth restorations
- Take dental x-rays if necessary
Regular professional dental cleanings and exams are essential for maintaining a healthy mouth and a beautiful smile.
When to schedule your cleaning appointment
We recommend, along with the American Dental Association (ADA), to get your teeth professionally cleaned once every 6 months (2 times per year).
Doing so will help promote healthy, clean teeth. We will be able to keep an eye on any problems and fix them before major problems occur. Six-month checkups are a very important preventive measure for healthy mouths. It is always better to prevent a problem from occurring rather than waiting until the problem worsens. Oral care prevention can help you save money and time in the long run.
If you haven’t been to the dentist in a long time, we recommend scheduling your appointment with one of our gentle hygienists in Alpharetta, GA. For the best oral health possible, you should come in at Advanced Cosmetic & Family Dentistry in Alpharetta, GA at least once every six months.
