Many of our patients ask why regular flossing and brushing are not enough to prevent dental health problems. After all, if you are dedicated to good daily oral hygiene, is it really likely that plaque and bacteria will cause decay or dental issues? Unfortunately, even the best dental hygiene regimens of brushing and flossing may not catch all of the material that can lead to cavities or infection. This is why Dr. Daniel Burton, D.D.S. and his team recommend patients in Grand Rapids, MI get their teeth cleaned and examined at least twice a year.
In addition to catching the earliest signs of decay during one of our thorough and state-of-the-art oral exams, our staff will be able to take a look at any previous dental work and be sure it is in good condition. They will remove any buildup of tartar or plaque, polish your teeth and remove stains, and perform any treatments needed to address the earliest signs of periodontal disease. Once you have had an oral exam and cleaning, we will give you any suggestions or recommendations we feel will help you maintain good dental health.
Our dedication to providing top quality care can only succeed if you also make a commitment, and it begins with twice annual oral exams and cleanings. If you need to book a cleaning, you can do so by contacting our office at 616-784-9150 to schedule the appointment or use our online contact form.
