With your smile being the first thing most people will notice about you, it is important that your smile reflects who you are properly. As such, it is important that you are diligent about your at-home and in-office dental care. At the office of Robert Elloway, DDS, we make preventive care a priority, and that includes getting dental cleanings and examinations in Riverside, California. If you are due for a dental cleaning with our dentist and team, call 951-684-2085 to set up your appointment.
It is recommended that you come to our office every six months for a routine dental cleaning and examination. Although these routine appointments may seem repetitive or arbitrary, they actually serve a very important purpose. During these routine appointments, our team will perform a complete evaluation of your smile, including a visual inspection and a periodontal evaluation. We often use digital X-rays to check the teeth for signs of damage, decay or bone loss. Additionally, we will perform an oral cancer screening to check for any abnormalities that are present in the mouth.
After your examination, our team will clean your teeth, removing plaque and tartar from the tooth surface. We will then floss and polish the teeth so you can leave our office with a fresh smile.
By attending these six-month appointments, our team can keep a close eye on your smile, so we can be aware of any changes or abnormalities that occur. With early treatment, you can avoid the necessity for costly or complicated restorative procedures. We look forward to caring for your smile!
