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. You must also have a professional dental cleaning and checkup twice a year. This will allow Dr. Manveen Atwal, DDS to help you keep your teeth healthy and strong.
When you come in for your appointment, our hygienist will remove the plaque and tartar from all surfaces of your teeth using a small, metal tool. Then the hygienist will floss between each of your teeth. Depending on your needs, dental fluoride may be applied in a foam, varnish, or gel form. Your teeth will then be polished by our hygienist.
Our dentist will then examine your teeth and gums, checking for any issues or potential issues like decay and gum disease. Dr. Manveen Atwal, DDS may choose to take X-rays to get a closer look. If any dental problems were found, our dentist will discuss them with you and go over your treatment options. We want you to be able to take an active role in your dental treatment, so we will answer any questions you may have. Of course, the final decision about your treatment plan is yours to make.
