You may be a master when it comes to brushing and flossing, but you still need to visit our team for your dental cleanings and exams in Redwood City, California. Our dentists and team can use these visits to help ensure a lifetime of excellent oral health! If it is time for your checkup with Dr. Donald Hermansen or Dr. Derrell Washington, call 650-716-2500 today for your appointment.
As a part of your oral health routine, we recommend that you visit our office for regular dental cleanings and exams. A dental cleaning involves the professional removal of plaque and tartar (also known as dental calculus) from the surface of your teeth. Additionally, our dentists may floss and polish your teeth to promote a healthier, more vibrant smile. This cleaning can help you avoid future tooth decay and harmful periodontal diseases.
As you meet with us, your checkup may involve the following:
- Dental flossing
- Fluoride treatment
- Removal of tooth stains or discolorations
- Screening for tooth decay or gum disease
- X-rays to examine your overall oral health
In addition to your cleaning, our dentists can examine the situation of your oral health and help you determine the proper type of treatment needed to preserve and protect your smile. This may involve the use of digital X-rays, which enable us to view a closer look of your teeth and aid us in detecting hidden oral health issues.
These regular cleanings and exams are essential in furthering the overall health of your smile. We encourage patients to visit with us every six months to help avoid the risk of developing tooth decay or gum disease. You can get started by contacting us today for an appointment!
