patient with hygienist cleaningBrushing twice a day, flossing once a day and eating a healthy diet are some of the best things you can do to maintain a healthy smile. While those are important parts of the equation, the other equally important part is your regular dental visit. You should make time to see Dr. Lien Ngo every six months at Brookside Dental in Placerville, California for your cleanings and exams. During these visits, the dental hygienist will give your teeth a thorough cleaning to remove the plaque and tartar which build up on your teeth and cause gum disease and tooth decay. The hygienist will also polish your teeth, before the dentist gives you an examination. X-rays will also be taken so that our team can track any changes in your teeth and jaws, and look for potential problems

During your examination, the dentist will take a close look at your teeth, gums and mouth to evaluate your oral health, and look for any issues. Early detection and treatment are both key to keeping problems small, and even keeping them from developing. We may also talk with you about areas of your oral hygiene routine that may need some improvements, and concerns that we would like to address.

Remember, you have an entire team of professionals on your side when it comes to keeping your teeth and mouth clean and healthy. If it is time for your regular exam, or if you have a concern about your dental health, why not schedule a cleaning and exam? Call us today at 530-622-1987.
