Preserve Your Oral Health with Dr. Cooper
While many patients visit our practice for more complex procedures, it’s important that you don’t forget to schedule hygiene appointments every six months. These check-ups allow Dr. Cooper and our dental team a chance to thoroughly examine your teeth and gums for any potential issues that could threaten your health.
Though regular brushing and flossing at home are highly effective, we can also use our specialized tools to remove plaque from the parts of your mouth that are most difficult to reach. This will help reduce your risk of tooth decay and gum disease, among other health problems.
During your hygiene appointment, we do more than just clean your teeth. We’ll start by taking x-rays of your entire mouth to ensure that all your teeth look healthy. We use digital x-rays at our practice that expose you to 90% less radiation for your safety. These x-rays also allow you to see exactly what your hygienist sees and understand their treatment method.
Once we’ve dealt with any issues that you may have, we’ll thoroughly clean and polish your teeth so you can leave our office with a healthy, sparkling smile.
Forming Good Habits
One of the most important parts of serving our patients is to provide them with the information they need to achieve a healthy smile for life. We especially emphasize this with our younger patients, showing them that visiting the dentist is nothing to be afraid of and educating them about proper oral hygiene habits at home.
At Contemporary Dental Arts, you can enjoy the convenience of a one-stop shop that meets all your family’s dental needs.
