At Complete Smiles Bella Vista, we believe it’s the small things that add up to make all the difference. For this reason, we always emphasize the importance of a regular checkup and clean. While it’s important to brush and floss daily, there are always those hard to reach places where plaque and tartar can build up over time and if left unremoved, can lead to gum disease and tooth decay. Regular checkups and cleans not only help to leave your teeth and gums looking and feeling the best they can, but it also allows us to catch any problems early on, reducing your time in the dental chair and potential costs.
Your Complete Smiles checkup and clean includes:
- A comprehensive dental examination
- Digital photos
- Clean and Polish
- Fluoride treatment
- Personalized treatment pla
Making these regular checkups as effective as possible.
The first steps are to get to know about you and your lifestyle
At Complete Smiles Bella Vista, we believe that it’s important to get to know about you as a person, including your lifestyle and your habits, as these can all impact on your general dental health. The more we know, the more we can help tailor a treatment specifically to your needs.
A typical examination will consist of a visual examination to ensure there’s no significant issues, as well as dental x-rays to see what’s happening under the surface. The dentist will take a recording of what teeth and fillings are present whilst also looking for any signs of gum disease or tooth decay. The dentist will also take several high detail digital photos to ensure that you can see exactly what’s going on and get the most from your appointment.
Finally, the clean and polish
After the completion of your thorough clean and polish to remove those hard to get rid of stains, our dentists will take the time to discuss the findings with you in a simple, easy to understand manner with the aid of digital photos to ensure we can prevent these issues from arising again.
