Routine Dental Care

Routine Care

At SacSmiles, we understand that each patient has unique dental needs. That’s why we highly recommend regular visits to our practice for routine dental cleanings. Whether on a quarterly or biannual basis, these visits allow us to closely monitor your dental health and address any issues that may arise.

By staying proactive and keeping a watchful eye on your oral health, we can prevent and treat diseases at their earliest stages. Early detection of dental caries and periodontal disease is key in avoiding more serious and costly complications down the line. Not only can this approach save you money in the long run, but it also minimizes the need for invasive treatments such as implants, bridges, or dentures.

At SacSmiles, we believe in the power of prevention. By regularly visiting our skilled team, we can identify and treat minor dental problems before they escalate. This proactive approach ensures that you maintain a healthy and beautiful smile while avoiding the inconvenience and expense associated with more extensive dental procedures.

Don’t delay your dental health concerns. By catching and addressing minor issues early on, we can provide timely and effective treatments, allowing you to enjoy optimal oral health and overall well-being. Contact SacSmiles today to schedule your routine dental cleaning and experience the benefits of preventive dental care firsthand.

What To Expect

For your cleaning, our staff will spend about 45 minutes cleaning, polishing, and removing tartar build up from the surface of your teeth. However, our staff is not just cleaning your teeth. Our doctor and staff will also do a full exam, checking for issues that you may not even be able to see. This includes checking for signs of tooth decay, gingivitis, and even oral cancer. During your cleaning, our staff will also apply a fluoride treatment to prevent future cavities
