Keeping your smile healthy starts with good daily hygiene. However, no oral health regimen is complete without regular professional dental cleanings. To ensure your long-term oral health, Dr. Jason L. Downey offers routine dental cleaning appointments at his office in Las Vegas, NV. Visiting our office every six months can keep your teeth and gums from developing disease or decay. Regular checkups also enable you to have shorter visits and receive minimally invasive treatment techniques when oral health issues do occur. Contact our office today to learn more.
What to Expect
Regular dental cleanings allow Dr. Downey to evaluate your oral health and ensure your smile remains healthy. He and his team begin every dental cleaning with a thorough inspection of the teeth, gums, and jaw. Detecting the early signs of more complicated issues can better prepare you and our team for addressing, and even reversing, dental damage.
During a checkup, you can also expect a thorough cleaning to eliminate any plaque or tartar that you are unable to reach on your own. This procedure uses a special toothpaste to polish and smooth your teeth, preventing bacteria and plaque from accumulating in the future. Additionally, we use the appropriate tools for cleaning inside the gum line, where bacteria and debris can cause decay near tooth roots, as well as removing buildups of tartar that otherwise cannot be addressed.
Dr. Downey and his team do their best to make every appointment as casual and comfortable as possible for you and every member of your family.
Comfortable, Educational Care
Prevention is the best cure, and regular professional cleanings are one of the least invasive dental procedures you can undergo. Dr. Downey and his team do their best to make every appointment as casual and comfortable as possible for you and every member of your family. We excel at making kids feel comfortable in the dental office, and helping them establish habits that provide lifelong oral health.
Our team can also make specific recommendations for maintaining the health of your smile. It is not uncommon for us to provide prescriptions for extra-strength toothpaste and other dental products. We want our patients to have smiles that last, and we will educate you on how to take the best care of your smile.
Regular professional dental cleanings are an essential preventative measure that can provide beneficial long-term results. Without proactive treatments, tooth enamel will naturally start to wear away with age. However, dental cleanings can significantly slow this process.
Even if oral health concerns such as TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders, periodontal disease, or oral cancer eventually develop, regular dental appointments can help you and Dr. Downey identify and address these issues as early as possible for effective, gentle treatment.
