Dental Cleanings and Checkups
Having your teeth professionally cleaned and checked once or twice a year is not only beneficial to your oral health, but it can benefit the health of your entire body. Riverwood Dental provides comprehensive dental checkups and cleanings as part of our extensive menu of dental services in the Cumberland area. Our family dental practice understands the importance of preventive dental care. Regular cleanings and checkups are the key to keeping your mouth healthy at any stage of life.
We have a caring team of dental professionals who are committed to providing a rewarding routine visit for each member of your family. These visits include a thorough cleaning of your teeth and a gentle checkup of your entire mouth. A professional teeth cleaning removes any damaging plaque or tartar that has built up on your teeth over time. Plaque is made up of thousands of bacteria that will eat away at the tooth enamel if not removed. A cleaning from your dentist is the only way to remove plaque once it has hardened on your teeth and gums. Regular cleanings and exams help you avoid decay, gum disease and other disruptive dental issues down the road.
Comprehensive Dental Exams
Riverwood Dental proudly provides the most complete and comprehensive dental exam using the best that modern dentistry has to offer. We understand the connection between your oral health and the health of your entire body. By keeping regular dental appointments, our doctors have the unique ability to notice even the slightest changes in your oral health that may indicate an issue that needs to be addressed. Our exams include a visible evaluation from our dentist, measurement of your gums, screening for oral cancer and any necessary dental x-rays. In every way possible, we focus on promoting optimal oral health and long-term vitality.
While brushing and flossing your teeth daily are essential at-home steps to promote good oral health, it is important that you have deep cleanings performed on your teeth annually or biannually. Our dental hygienists and dentist use a combination of ultrasonic and handheld tools to remove plaque build-up from the surfaces of your teeth. We will polish your teeth to remove stains so that a brighter and healthier smile is revealed.
If a deep cleaning or other dental procedure sounds frightening or makes you anxious, we are pleased to offer sedation dentistry to help you relax. We believe in giving every patient a rewarding and stress-free experience in dental care.
