Dr. John S. Grisham and our dental team recommend that you schedule a teeth cleaning in Littleton, New Hampshire, at least once every six months. This appointment includes a professional teeth cleaning, fluoride, a dental exam, and dental X-rays. Our hygienist will scrape all of the plaque and tartar from your teeth using a small, metal tool. Then they will floss and polish your teeth. Dental fluoride is then applied the teeth of patients ages 16 and under. Fluoride is a mineral that protects your teeth from decay by strengthening your tooth enamel. Our dentist will then perform a dental exam. Your teeth and gums will be checked for signs of tooth decay, gingivitis, and other dental issues. Sometimes, our dentist will take dental X-rays to get a closer, more thorough look at your smile. If any dental issues are found, our dentist will recommend one or more of our general and family dental services. Our dental team will inform you of what is involved with every treatment so that you can make an educated decision. Then, our dentist will form a treatment plan with you.
We encourage you to contact our dental office today to learn more about teeth cleanings and to schedule your next visit with our dentist.
