We recommend that you visit Laurel Family Dental every six months for a routine dental cleaning and exam. Regular dental cleanings and exams are among the most important services provided at our office, as they help to keep your mouth healthy and prevent your smile from being damaged. This preventive care helps us to monitor your oral health and quickly treat any problems that are developing, such as tooth decay or periodontal disease.
When you receive a dental cleaning and exam, our dentists and hygienists will:
- Thoroughly clean your teeth to remove plaque or tartar (calculus)
- Floss between your teeth
- Polish your teeth
- Examine your entire mouth for signs of any damaging dental conditions or diseases, such as tooth decay, gum disease and oral cancer
- If necessary, provide a topical fluoride treatment to strengthen your tooth enamel
- Take any needed X-rays
Our dentists may recommend more frequent visits for dental cleanings and exams as needed. We also strongly encourage you to contact us immediately if you experience a dental emergency, injury or pain.
We invite you to call us today at 406-628-6716 to schedule your appointment with Dr. Sam Pollock or Dr. Jordan Dobmeier, and to learn more about the benefits of dental cleanings and exams in Laurel, Montana. We look forward to helping you care for your smile!
