Dental Checkups Cary

Brushing your teeth is an essential part of your daily oral care routine, but brushing alone cannot guarantee ongoing oral health. Even if you brush, floss, and rinse twice a day, you still need to see your dentist every six months for a dental cleaning.

According to the American Dental Association (ADA), the personalized oral care that you receive at each dental visit is a necessity for strong dental health. The team at New Waverly Place Dentistry offers comprehensive dental care at every appointment so that you can keep smiling with confidence.

The Importance of Preventive Oral Care

Visiting your dentist every six months is a form of preventive care. Each appointment gives Dr. Zhang & Dr. Jenkins the opportunity to evaluate your gums, teeth, tongue, and throat. It is the best opportunity to take note of changes since your last appointment and make recommendations to help you protect your mouth in the future.

Preventive oral care isn’t just about finding cavities. Your Cary dentist is responsible for checking the health of your entire oral system. If you skip appointments or only see your dentist every few years, it becomes much harder to identify and treat problems like tooth decay and gum disease before they cause significant damage.

Dental Cleanings and Exams

Dental cleanings and exams in Cary with New Waverly Place Dentistry are designed to improve and protect the health of your mouth. We pay special attention to the following factors during every appointment:

  • Lymph nodes and lower jaw joints
  • Signs of gum disease, loose or broken teeth, tooth decay, and other damage
  • Changes in the way your gums cover your teeth
  • Overall cleanliness of your teeth and gums
  • Any signs of oral cancer

Of course, every dental exam also involves a cleaning to remove plaque that regular brushing and flossing often miss. In addition, hardened plaque, tartar, can only be removed via a professional cleaning. We also apply fluoride if needed. Topical fluoride is a simple yet powerful way to protect teeth from cavities, especially if you have tooth enamel problems, dry mouth, or generally poor oral health.

X-Rays At Your Dental Cleaning

Digital x-ray imaging is also an important part of your regular dental cleaning appointments. Your dentist uses digital x-rays to produce detailed images of your teeth, gums, and bone. This is important because x-rays make it possible to evaluate your oral health and detect, diagnose, and treat existing conditions and diseases.
