While dental decay and gum disease are the two most common conditions affecting dental health, they are also the most preventable. In addition to regular brushing and flossing the American Dental Association recommends a minimum of two dental checkups every year for a professional cleaning and comprehensive examination at our state-of-the-art Riverview dental office.
By making regular visits to your Riverview dental office, you can help to prevent dental disease in its earliest stages and halt its progression to protect your smile. When you come for a checkup our expert team can perform a comprehensive smile examination and carefully evaluate your teeth, gums, and jaw for any sign of dental disease or other issues and perform a thorough assessment of your oral health, evaluating the condition of the teeth as well as all the supporting hard and soft tissues in and around the oral cavity. If a problem is detected, we provide prompt care to restore your dental health and wellbeing. All patients also receive a thorough dental cleaning to remove any accumulations of dental plaque and tartar to prevent dental disease. An in-office cleaning can reach those areas of your mouth that a toothbrush and floss can’t, to keep your smile vibrant and fresh. We will also provide important instruction in the best methods of brushing and flossing, so you can keep your teeth as clean as possible, address the importance of a nutritious diet to your oral health and discuss habits that be harmful to your smile. We also help our pediatric patients develop healthy habits early on and guide them in establishing a strong foundation for a lifetime of oral health.
Our comprehensive, state-of-the-art Riverview dental office makes it easy to keep up with preventive checkups for the whole family. At Boyette Dental our aim is to enable patients to preserve their natural teeth for a lifetime, and to make dental exams and teeth cleanings informative, engaging and stress-free!
