As you know, it is highly important to your oral health that you brush and floss your teeth every day. However, oral hygiene alone is not enough to achieve and maintain ideal oral health. It is imperative that you have a professional dental cleaning and checkup twice a year as well. This will allow Dr. Joel R. Bingham to help you keep your teeth healthy and strong.

When you come in for your appointment, our hygienist will first use a small, metal tool to remove all plaque and tartar from your teeth. Then the hygienist will floss between each of your teeth. Depending on your needs, dental fluoride may be applied. Then your teeth will be polished to give them extra shine.

Then our dentist will examine your teeth and gums thoroughly. They will check your gums for signs of gum disease and any other issues. They will decide whether or not X-rays are needed to get a closer look. Our dentist may also review and update your dental health history.

If any dental problems were found, our dentist will discuss them with you and go over your treatment options. We will answer any questions you may have. Of course, the final decision about your treatment plan is yours. If needed, our dentist or hygienist will also educate you about proper tooth brushing and flossing.
