A Look at an Average Trip to the Dentist
It is always a good idea to know what to expect before heading off to the dentist. Assuming that this is merely a maintenance visit, what are some of the techniques which will be used in order to ensure healthy teeth?
– You will first be provided with a thorough oral examination.
– Any existing plaque and tartar will thereafter be removed.
– A layer of fluoride may be applied to strength the enamel of your teeth.
“Some patients may need cleanings more frequently, some will need to come in less often.”
