No matter how well you brush and floss, you will not be able to remove the plaque, tartar and bacteria that accumulate on your teeth and eventually cause problems for your oral health. To keep your smile healthy and looking its best, you should see our dentist every six months on average for a dental cleaning and exam. Depending on your oral health, Dr. Brian Han may want to see you on a more frequent basis.
During your visit, our team will clean your teeth to remove any plaque you could not reach with your toothbrush and floss and remove the hardened plaque, which is also known as calculus. After flossing and polishing your teeth, we may also take X-rays to evaluate the health of your teeth and jaws and track any changes in your smile. We will also give you an oral cancer screening. Dr. Han will examine your mouth and teeth for any issues and make may make recommendations for treatment plans or improving your dental care at home.
If you are due or even overdue for your dental cleaning and exam in Fircrest, Washington, we will be happy to see you at Fircrest Family Dental. Call 253-843-6033 today to schedule your visit with Dr. Han.
