Dr. Richard Winter of Hampton Dental Associates, SC provides Milwaukee, WI area patients with dental care solutions to keep the smile healthy. When patients visit every six months for their routine appointment, they not only undergo an evaluation, but have a complete professional teeth cleaning performed by our dental hygienists as well.
Why is professional teeth cleaning important?
Patients are encouraged to brush and floss their teeth after every meal. By doing so, they will reduce the chances of developing conditions such as periodontal disease or tooth decay. However, some areas of the smile can be hard to reach and may be more difficult to address, resulting in patients becoming susceptible to developing cavities or disease. A professional cleaning allows a dental hygienist the ability to clean all the surfaces of the teeth and gums to ensure a healthy smile for life!
How much does a professional cleaning cost?
Dental cleanings done every six month at recall appointments are covered under the costs of a routine examination. Dr. Richard Winter finds there to be no need for further cleanings unless patients are in the process of treating conditions such as periodontal disease. Patients with this condition may need to visit their dentist more often to address the problem with procedures such as scaling and root planing. Patients with periodontal disease may also need to visit the office for treatments such as antibiotics to control the infection and bring the smile back to health.
Maintaining a healthy smile
When patients visit their dentist regularly, they are participating in proactive dental health care. This approach will often help patients maintain a healthy smile free from disease and decay and can also save patients money over time. Reactive dental care can be costlier than just maintaining oral health and wellness each and every day.
