Optimize Your Dental Health with Regular Dental Exams and Cleanings

Although not many people take it seriously, maintaining a healthy smile requires incredible work. Brushing and flossing your teeth daily is great, but it isn’t enough. You must visit a dentist at least twice yearly for an all-rounded dental care routine. When you need a dental home in Dothan, Alabama, you can trust Southern Pine Dental. We offer dental exams, cleanings, and other preventive dental care services to detect and address dental issues before they advance to require invasive and costly treatments. 

Dental checkups and cleanings for a healthy mouth

Dentists have special tools and skills to detect dental issues that may pass unnoticed under your watch. A typical dental appointment starts by examining your teeth and gums to identify signs of:

  • Cavities
  • Tooth decay
  • Oral cancer
  • Gum disease
  • Jaw misalignment
  • Failing dental work

Our dental team spots dental issues using physical and visual examinations. Additionally, we use digital X-rays to detect oral problems not visible to the naked eye. Once we have identified any dental issues, we develop a customized care plan to correct the problem and restore your dental health.

After a dental exam, we perform a dental cleaning to remove plaque and tartar along your gum line. Although at-home care is great, cleaning all areas of your mouth is impossible. We use special tools to clean hard-to-reach areas of your mouth. Once we have removed all dental calculus, we floss and polish your teeth to achieve a lustrous and radiant appearance.

If you have no further issues, Dr. Durwood Nowell expects to see you in the next six months. Before then, brush twice and floss daily to keep your dental health in tip-top condition.   

Benefits of dental exams and cleanings

We are busy, busy people. With our hands filled to the brim with family, personal, and job commitments, it can be easy to forgo dental appointments. If there’s anything to let go of, let it not be your smile. Want a healthy, beautiful smile? You must observe at-home dental care. Additionally, you should commit to bi-annual dental appointments. 

Regular dental appointments yield numerous benefits, including:

  • Prevent gum disease
  • Deter cavities and tooth decay
  • Prevent costly and invasive restorative treatments
  • Teeth cleaning removes surface stains for a shiny-looking smile
