Keeping your smile clean is an important part of maintaining good oral health. Put simply, a clean smile is a healthy smile! At our dental office, we are committed to providing you with thorough teeth cleanings, as well as helping you learn how to better care for your smile at home. We recommend that you visit our office every six months for a routine dental cleaning; during a regular teeth cleaning, our gentle dentist will:
- Carefully clean your teeth, removing any built-up plaque or tartar (hardened plaque)
- Polish your teeth
- Check your smile for signs of tooth decay, cavities, periodontal disease, and other damage
- Examine your existing fillings, crowns, or other restorations to check for needed maintenance
Dr. Rachel Meyer will recommend dental treatment as necessary to keep your smile healthy and beautiful. Your regular visits are also a great time to ask us any questions you may have about your oral health. In addition, we will help you learn how to properly care for your smile at home. Good dental hygiene in Los Alamos, New Mexico, includes daily brushing and flossing, as well as maintaining a balanced, nutritious diet. For more information on dental hygiene and cleanings, and to schedule your next visit to our office, we welcome you to call or visit us today. We are eager to care for you and your family!
