We believe that the first step to achieving a healthier smile is to achieve a cleaner smile. That is why our dentists are pleased to offer dental cleanings for all the members of your family. Dental cleanings are important to preventing decay, diagnosing emerging conditions and planning effective treatments. During a teeth cleaning we will:
- Clean each tooth and remove built-up plaque and tartar
- Examine your smile for signs of disease and decay
- Take a series of dental X-rays
- Review your dental history and dental hygiene habits
- Ensure existing restorations are functioning properly
- Discuss any questions or concerns you may have
We generally suggest you come in for a routine dental cleaning at least once every six months. Dr. Spencer also offers what is known as a full mouth debridement. A full mouth debridement is a more comprehensive cleaning that is designed to help us prepare your teeth for further treatment, especially those related to the gums. It often requires us to clean deeper underneath your gum line and is most useful for our patients facing more severe disease.
At Riverside Dental, we are proud of our hygiene team who offer comprehensive cleanings and non-surgical periodontal services. If it has been some time since you have been to the dentist in Jacksonville, Florida, we encourage you to contact Riverside Dental.
