At Rolling Creek Family Dentistry, we believe that having good oral hygiene is essential for overall health and well-being. For a healthy smile, we recommend getting X-rays, dental cleanings and dental exams regularly.
X-rays are an important part of preventive dental care. They help detect issues that may not be visible to the naked eye and are an essential tool that is used by our staff to develop a treatment plan.
X-rays can identify:
Signs of gum disease
Health of your jawbone
Position of teeth
Dental cleanings remove plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth in areas where brushing cannot reach. Plaque is a soft, sticky film made of leftover food and saliva that contains millions of bacteria! If plaque is not removed properly, it can harden and turn into tartar. Untreated plaque and tartar can cause cavities, gum disease, and other dental issues.
During a dental cleaning, our hygienists will:
Scale your teeth to remove plaque and tartar buildup
Polish your teeth to remove stains and make them look their best
Test your gum pockets for signs of periodontal disease
Teach you how to best care for your mouth at home
Dental Exams are an important part of preventive dental care. During a dental exam, Dr. Michael or Dr. Justine will:
Review your x-rays and detect issues with teeth, gums or bone
Ask you about your dental health
Discuss your dental needs
Make recommendations for treatment
How often do you need a cleaning and exam?
We encourage you to come in for a dental cleaning and exam at least once a year. Depending on the health of your teeth, you may need to have a dental cleaning and exam twice a year or quarterly. Dr. Michael and Dr. Justine will go over your treatment plan with you extensively at your first appointment.
We're in network with major insurers like Delta Dental, Aetna, and Cigna.
