At Bella Hanono Family Dentistry in Alpharetta, Georgia, we offer semi-annual checkups and cleanings as part of our preventive dental care. With proper care, you can enjoy healthy teeth and a beautiful smile well into your senior years.
Plaque and tartar buildup are a major cause of dental problems like decay, oral infections and gum disease. Brushing and flossing your teeth at home and using anti-microbial mouthwash can help reduce plaque buildup on your teeth. However, it’s not enough to keep your teeth completely plaque-free. That’s where dental cleanings come in. Your Alpharetta, GA dentist uses special tools to cleanse your teeth of plaque and tartar buildup to minimize your risk of cavities.
Dr. Bella Hanono will start by examining your teeth and gums to detect early warning signs of dental issues or abnormalities. Catching problems early enables you to get immediate treatment to keep your gums and teeth healthy. At least once annually, your bone health beneath the gum line is checked by taking x-rays.
Afterwards, Dr. Hanono will clean and polish your teeth, to remove plaque, tartar, and surface stains that can dull your smile, leaving your teeth smooth and shiny. We’ll also offer you fluoride treatment to give you an extra layer of protection against cavities.
Routine checkups and cleanings can help preserve the health and beauty of your smile. It gives your dentist a chance to monitor your oral health to keep problems at bay. These preventive dental care services can help:
