In addition to brushing, flossing, and maintaining a healthy diet, it’s important that you schedule a dental cleaning and exam once every six months (or more, if necessary). The Dental Hygienists at Jeff M. Morrison & Associates, DDS, have been professionally trained to remove stains and deposits, and polish your teeth to give you a healthy, clean, bright smile. Your Hygienist will also discuss a personalized oral health regiment with you to keep your mouth healthy. Following your cleaning, Dr. Morrison will review your oral health and conduct a thorough examination to detect any potentially serious concerns such as signs of tooth decay, periodontal disease (gum disease), and oral cancer. They will discuss their findings with you, and recommend any needed dental treatments to keep your smile in good health.
Scheduling regular check-ups and exams– even if you don’t think you have any dental problems, or if your child is young – will keep your smile (or your child’s) bright and healthy. Still need convincing? Read Dr. Morrison's blog post The Seven Benefits to a Dental Cleaning and Exam.
