When you go too long without a regular dental exam, you make yourself vulnerable to problems with your oral health that can seriously impact your well-being and appearance. Those who do schedule preventive care on a regular basis can have early warnings about problems with their dental and periodontal health, which can limit their risk for complications. These visits also protect you because they provide thorough teeth cleanings that protect you against future difficulties. Our Rochester, MN dental office has taken care to make our office a safe environment for our patients and team members. Thanks to changes in our practices, and the office itself, we can keep those who visit us safe from potential coronavirus exposure.
You Can Safely See Your Dentist For Different Oral Health Services
Our practice remains open, and we continue to offer preventive, restorative, and cosmetic dental services. We continue to prioritize the health, safety, and comfort of all those who come to see us. We have made changes to how we schedule visits, we have made changes to our waiting area to limit germ exposure, and we have even introduced new air filtration technology to remove harmful particles in the air. To make sure our protective measures remain effective, we continue to follow ADA and CDC guidelines regarding the maintenance of a safe environment.
What To Expect At Your Next Appointment
At your next exam, you can look forward to both a teeth cleaning and evaluation while you are in the dentist’s chair. These services help people stay safe against both tooth decay and gum disease, two common problems that can lead to alarming complications over time. Teeth cleanings remove bacteria buildup by clearing away both plaque and tartar. Tartar removal is something you are not able to do by brushing and flossing, making it an important part of preventive care. Depending on the results of your review, your dentist will either confirm that your smile is healthy, or point out problems with your oral health that require our services.
What To Expect If Your Dentist Identifies Problems With Your Oral Health
If your dentist notices that something is wrong with your oral health, they can recommend treatment so that the issue no longer puts your well-being in jeopardy. A cavity that we catch can be treated with a custom dental filling before a cavity grows serious enough to call for root canal therapy and a dental crown. Those who show signs of gingivitis can receive a periodontal cleaning that removes bacteria from beneath their gum line.
