Become Part of the Downtown Dental Family
Regular dental visits are essential to preventing tooth decay, detecting oral cancer, and maintaining a bright, healthy smile. At Downtown Dental, your oral health is our primary concern, and it starts with establishing a dental routine.
Each cleaning typically takes around 45 minutes, but we schedule one-hour appointments to give you plenty of time to discuss your dental goals and concerns. During your first visit, we’ll take a full set of X-rays and intraoral photos. Your dentist will also perform an extraoral exam, giving him a clear picture of your overall dental health.
Once we’ve completed your cleaning, filling, or restorative procedure, we’ll advise you on the best self-care practices you can implement at home. We can even recommend products to help address your unique dental issues.
Whether you’re visiting as a new or established patient, each appointment addresses your specific needs in a warm, caring environment. Our dentists take a gentle approach to dentistry that reduces discomfort, so even if you’ve developed a fear of the dentist following an upsetting experience, the staff at Downtown Dental is focused on putting you at ease from start to finish.
The Importance of Regular Cleanings
While it’s nice to know we offer an extensive list of services that can restore and whiten your smile, it’s important to schedule regular dental cleanings that can help you avoid the need for more extensive procedures.
During a cleaning, your hygienist removes any plaque or stains that are discoloring your teeth, leaving you with a brighter smile. This cleaning also addresses any gum issues, which can prevent gum disease and early tooth loss. In fact, did you know there’s a strong link between gum disease and cardiovascular health? Getting a regular cleaning twice a year not only prevents gum disease but also reduces your chances of having a heart attack.
Regular cleanings also allow your dentist to detect early signs of problems like fractures or broken fillings. Addressing these problems early is typically more cost-effective than waiting until you need more extensive restoration work, so consider your dental cleanings an investment.
