Dental Exams and Professional Cleanings

Preventive Dental Care for Patients in the Gaithersburg, MD Area

Dental Examinations and Cleanings in the Gaithersburg area You brush twice daily. You floss at least once a day. You may even use an antiseptic mouthwash. So why do you need to visit New Look Dental Care every six months?

The American Dental Association recommends a dental visit at least every six months. The mouth is an important part of the whole body, and good oral health helps to maintain good overall health.

A professional dental cleaning can go where you just can’t, including beneath the gum line and every nook and cranny. If certain areas are not cleaned thoroughly with regular home care, this can cause gum disease. There may be signs of inflammation, bleeding, and tenderness. We have the equipment and training to remove tartar, plaque, and stains in those hard-to-reach areas. The final steps are to polish and floss between the teeth to enhance your beautiful smile.

Furthermore, your biannual cleaning gives Dr. Yoon the opportunity to examine your mouth, teeth, and gums thoroughly. He will check for everything from cavities to signs of oral cancer. This proactive examination can catch problems before they become major issues that negatively impact your oral health – and your budget.

Remember, your routine dental cleanings are crucial to your continued good health. Schedule with us today by calling (240) 477-5921.
