Dental Hygiene Visits in Grand Rapids, MI
Stay On Track with Your Smile Protection
Your smile is meant to last a lifetime, but you have to maintain it with proper hygiene habits and routine visits to our Grand Rapids, MI, office. Here are four ways to keep your smile in optimal condition:
- 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 of your oral structure, screening for oral cancer, and recommendations for maintaining your healthy smile.
Preventive Care: Defend Your Smile for the Long Haul
Keeping your smile healthy begins with comprehensive preventive care. For this reason, we recommend visiting Dr. Robson and the rest of our staff at Robson Family Dental.
We’ll begin each routine checkup with a thorough professional cleaning. Our hygienist will remove the plaque and tartar from your smile. This step is essential because the bacteria that cause cavities and gum disease feed on plaque and tartar.
Following the cleaning, we’ll polish your smile so that it looks beautiful. Another benefit of polishing your teeth is that it makes it harder for plaque to stick to them.
Your Hygiene Visit
As part of your hygiene visit, we’ll collect a full set of images using our digital x-ray machine, which is faster, safer, and less intrusive than traditional x-rays. Taking x-rays is crucial because it allows Dr. Robson to identify potential issues such as tooth decay, abscesses, tumors, impacted teeth, and teeth that haven’t grown correctly.
After your x-rays, Dr. Robson will conduct a complete examination of your mouth. He’ll review the x-ray images and check your smile for any issues. Your exam will also include a full screening for oral cancer.
Finally, Dr. Robson will take the time to discuss the best oral hygiene practices for maintaining a healthy, complete smile. 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 strong oral health.
There’s a reason our practice is named Robson “Family” Dental, and it’s because we see patients of all ages. Dr. Robson provides comprehensive, compassionate care for all family members. Pediatric dentistry focuses on providing hygiene treatments for your children and teens, from routine cleanings to fillings and some orthodontic work.
Don’t waste time traveling from one dentist to the next because you can’t get complete care for your entire family. At Robson Family Dental, you can find everything you need under one roof in Grand Rapids, MI.
