Cleanings & Checkups
Dental cleanings and checkups are two of the most important routine general dentistry treatments that you can maintain for optimal oral health. The American Dental Association recommends to people with healthy teeth, who are not prone to the development of cavities, visit the dentist at least once a year. The ADA recommends that those who are prone to the development of cavities, have any signs of gum disease, or who have other issues which affect their oral health should visit the dentist for regular cleanings and checkups at least twice a year. At Mendota Springs Dentistry, we understand how important routine care of your mouth is. You only get one set of permanent teeth, and taking care of them to the best of your ability is essential to making them last for a lifetime.
Comprehensive Dental Exams
Vivienne Zhang, DDS, leads Mendota Springs Dentistry as a dental who is committed to helping all of her patients reach optimal oral health. During our comprehensive dental exams, Dr. Zhang takes the time to fully evaluate each patient’s mouth for any signs of decay, gum disease, or anything that has the potential to compromise the health of the mouth. During one of our comprehensive dental exams, Dr. Zhang will thoroughly examine your teeth, gums, tongue, and other tissues within the mouth. At our dental practice, our entire staff understands how every part of the mouth affects the entire body. A healthy mouth is an essential aspect to a healthy body.
Comprehensive dental exams examine the mouth thoroughly to detect any issue(s) that need to be addressed. Because the mouth is full of living tissues, any small concern needs to be addressed because of how quickly and how invasive an infection can spread. Many severe health problems have been directly linked to the health of the mouth (e.g. diabetes, heart disease, kidney failure); therefore, promoting a healthy mouth helps to promote a healthy body.
