Maintaining excellent oral health throughout your life is easy and stress-free when you keep up with preventive checkups at The Smile Company. As per the recommendations of the American Dental Association, we encourage you to visit us twice a year for a Santa Clara teeth cleaning, examination, oral cancer screening and preventive treatments to reduce your risk of dental disease. Our comprehensive preventive program is designed to meet the needs of patients of all ages, making our office a convenient one-stop-solution for s your family’s checkups and care.
Both cavities and periodontal disease can be almost entirely prevented by maintaining an effective daily oral hygiene routine of brushing, flossing and limiting your intake of sugary foods. These essential steps help to protect your teeth and gums from the detrimental effects of plaque, which harbors the bacteria responsible for tooth decay and gum disease. To complement your home care routine, it’s also important to visit our office for a Santa Clara teeth cleaning and dental exam. During your teeth cleaning, we remove any residual buildup of plaque, tartar or food debris from the difficult to reach areas between the teeth and gums. We also provide guidance as to how you can clean and care for your teeth most effectively at home. To help our youngest patients establish a strong foundation for a lifetime of excellent oral health, we offer an added level of protection against tooth decay with dental sealants and periodic fluoride treatments. For patients of all ages, every checkup visit includes a comprehensive examination, assisted advanced digital radiography, as needed. Periodic checkups allow for the earliest possible detection and intervention of conditions that may adversely affect your oral health.
At The Smile Company, we make checkups an engaging and positive learning experience for each member of your family. When you come in for your Santa Clara teeth cleaning and exam, you can expect personalized, gentle care from a compassionate team of professionals. To learn more or to schedule a checkup, call today.
