Even if you brush your teeth two times each day, floss every night and eat a healthy diet, there is still no substitute for visiting our dentists for your regular dental cleanings and exams in Palatine, Illinois. These visits give Dr. George Skoog or Dr. Alla Shtilman the chance to remove the plaque, tartar and food debris that you could not reach on your own. Call Advocate Dental of Palatine today at 847-359-8732 if it is time for your checkup.
As a part of your oral health routine, we recommend that you visit our office for regular dental cleanings and exams. A dental cleaning involves the professional removal of plaque and tartar (also known as dental calculus) from the surface of your teeth. Additionally, our dentists may floss and polish your teeth to promote a healthier, more vibrant smile. This cleaning can help you avoid future tooth decay and harmful periodontal diseases.
As you meet with us, your checkup may involve the following:
- Dental flossing
- Fluoride treatment
- Removal of tooth stains or discolorations
- Screening for tooth decay or gum disease
- X-rays to examine your overall oral health
In addition to your cleaning, our dentists can examine the situation of your oral health and help you determine the proper type of treatment needed to preserve and protect your smile. This may involve the use of digital X-rays, which enable us to view a closer look of your teeth and aid us in detecting hidden oral health issues.
These regular cleanings and exams are essential in furthering the overall health of your smile. We encourage patients to visit with us every six months to help avoid the risk of developing tooth decay or gum disease. You can get started by contacting us today for an appointment!
