With so many dental procedures and treatments today, it’s hard to believe only 50 years ago our oral healthcare was limited to post-treatments only after we got an infection or suffering from decay. Finally, dentists realized our teeth needed preventative care in order for them to last for years. This led to the ideas of brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing daily, and of course, getting biannual exams by your dentist.
Dr. Andrew Smith and our dental hygienists here in Murray, Utah, want to give you the dental care your teeth deserve and protect against damaging infections. Although you may be dutiful in cleaning your teeth at home, you still need a full dental cleaning from your dentist. We provide a full examination of your dental health including X-rays, fluoride treatment, removing plaque buildup, and tips on brushing and flossing.
Although you do all of this, there are certain people at a higher risk for dental diseases if they don’t go to the dentist every 3-4 months, sometimes every other month. This includes people who are diabetic, pregnant, smokers, and those more susceptible due to cavities, plaque buildup, gum disease, or have weak immune response to bad bacteria.
