What is a teeth cleaning?
A teeth cleaning is one of the preventive care services we provide at Alaska Dental Arts to make sure that your smile stays healthy. During a dental cleaning, our gentle dentist and dental team will provide a thorough cleaning for your smile, as well as an exam to check for any problematic conditions. We will carefully remove any plaque and tartar (hardened plaque) from your teeth; when left on your teeth, these can cause tooth decay, cavities, and gum disease.
Dr. Derek Lowe will also check for signs of dental problems like tooth decay, gum disease, and other types of damage. We may utilize digital X-rays and other diagnostic tools to better evaluate your oral health. Once we have determined the current condition of your smile, we will recommend any dental treatments you need to improve your oral health and function. We will also review your dental hygiene habits and ensure you know how to properly care for your smile at home. In addition, your dental exam and teeth cleaning in Fairbanks, Alaska, is a perfect time for you to ask us any questions you have about your dental health or how to take care of your smile.
