Cleanings and Examinations
Your at-home dental hygiene routine provides the foundation for clean teeth and healthy gums, but alone is not enough to ensure lasting oral health. Even if you brush after every meal and snack, and floss morning and night, tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health concerns can still arise. This is why regularly scheduled dental cleanings and examinations with our Littleton family dentists are so important.
If you are overdue for a cleaning and examination, please contact Colorado Dental Arts online or by calling our Littleton family dentistry practice at (303) 872-9436 to schedule an appointment today.
Every Six Months
The American Dental Association recommends people over the age of one visit the dentist every six months for routine services and we completely agree. Most dental insurance plans cover these visits in full, but we offer an exclusive Dental Savings Plan and payment options if this is not the case for your family.
During your regular visits, one of our hygienists will thoroughly clean and polish your teeth. If the visit is for pediatric services, sealants and fluoride treatments may be provided as well. All age-appropriate services are based on the specific needs of the patient and discussed in full before being provided.
Following your professional cleaning, our dentists will carefully examine your teeth, gums, soft tissue, and jaw for signs of oral health concerns. If potential issues are detected, we will discuss the treatment options best suited to prevent serious problems from arising. Once a year, our family dentists will also examine digital x-rays of your teeth to help ensure unseen problems are addressed as well. Digital x-rays and other advanced technology used by our professional team help protect your safety and ensure reliable and effective treatments. This can be discussed in more detail during your next appointment.
