Dental Cleanings & Prevention in Churubusco, IN
Protect Your Oral Health
While good oral hygiene is key to a healthy smile, regular brushing and flossing alone sometimes aren’t enough to prevent certain oral health issues. At Turtle Town Dental, our experienced dentists provide quality preventive care as part of our commitment to your overall oral health.
We strongly urge all patients to schedule and attend biannual dental cleanings and examinations to keep their oral health in good condition. Learn how these routine visits can help prevent oral health issues and maintain your beautiful smile.
Comprehensive Dental Exam
Dental exams are crucial in detecting the early signs of oral health problems. Using special dental tools and state-of-the-art dental technology, Dr. Bixler can spot even the earliest symptoms of:
- Periodontal (gum) disease
- Tooth decay
- Jawbone deterioration
- Oral cancer
Dr. Bixler will also conduct a thorough evaluation of any existing restorations, such as dental crowns, fillings, and implants to ensure they’re in good condition. If Dr. Bixler notices any symptoms or signs of an oral health complication, he can diagnose it and provide you with the proper treatment.
Professional Dental Cleaning
Our hygienists will perform a meticulous cleaning of your teeth to ensure your mouth is free of unhealthy bacteria. Using special dental tools, they can clean areas of the mouth that may be difficult to reach with a toothbrush, such as your back molars. They’ll remove any traces of plaque, tartar, and other debris to prevent cavities or tooth decay.
They’ll also conduct a thorough tooth polishing, in which our hygienist will remove excess stains and plaque to help ensure your smile looks its best. After undergoing a professional cleaning, don’t forget to continue your at-home oral hygiene regimen!
Frequently Asked Questions
How often should you get dental cleanings?
It’s essential to attend biannual visits to our Churubusco office for routine cleanings and exams to preserve your oral health. Neglecting these routine visits may lead to the formation of cavities, tooth decay, and gum disease. Dr. Bixler and our expert dental team can ensure your teeth, gums, and jaw are in good condition.
Do dental cleanings hurt?
Dental cleanings are virtually painless procedures. If you struggle with dental anxiety or extreme tooth sensitivity, however, Dr. Bixler can work to find a solution. Your health and safety are our top priorities, so we’ll make sure you receive the dental care you need while helping you remain at ease.
How important are professional teeth cleanings?
Even if you brush and floss twice each day, certain areas of the mouth are difficult to reach, so your mouth may not be entirely clean. Dr. Bixler can use special dental tools to remove even the most stubborn plaque and tartar build-up to keep your smile healthy and beautiful.
