Dental Hygiene Visits in Grand Rapids, MI
Your smile is meant to last a lifetime, but you have to provide it with the proper care and maintenance. There are four things you can do to keep your smile shining bright:
- Practice effective home care by brushing and flossing twice a day.
- Eat a healthy, well-balanced diet.
- Avoid sugary foods, especially between meals.
- Visit Dr. Robson at least twice a year for regular hygiene visits.
During your hygiene visit, Dr. Robson and our team will provide essential services that cannot be duplicated at home. This includes a thorough professional cleaning, a complete examination to assess the overall health of your smile, screening for oral cancer, and recommendations for maintaining your healthy smile.
Effective dentistry is largely a matter of preventative care. That’s why your visit to Robson Family Dental begins with a thorough professional cleaning.
To start off, our hygienist will remove the plaque and tartar from your smile. This is important because the bacteria that cause cavities and gum disease feed on plaque and tartar.
After your cleaning, we’ll polish your teeth. In addition to making your smile look fantastic, this will also make it harder for harmful plaque to stick to your teeth.
Your Hygiene Visit
As part of your hygiene visit, we’ll take a full set of dental x-rays. This is essential for the early detection of potential issues such as tooth decay, abscesses, tumors, impacted teeth, and teeth that aren’t growing in properly.
Dr. Robson will perform a full examination of your smile. He’ll look at your x-rays and check your teeth, mouth, and gums, monitoring your smile for potential issues. For kids and teenagers, Dr. Robson will assess their dentition to make sure their smiles are developing correctly.
Your examination will also include a full screening for oral cancer. This is important because almost 50,000 Americans are diagnosed with oral cancer every year. Early detection is crucial for effectively treating this disease.
Finally, we counsel patients on the best practices for maintaining their healthy smiles. This is particularly important for our younger patients. If they start taking good care of their teeth now, it can help them achieve a lifetime of oral health.
