Dr. Kerry Olszewski recommends that you schedule a teeth cleaning in Mill Creek, Washington, at least every six months. During this appointment, you will receive a professional teeth cleaning, fluoride, a dental exam, and dental X-rays.
Our hygienist will begin your appointment by cleaning all of your teeth of plaque and tartar with a small, metal tool. Then, our hygienist will floss your teeth and polish them. Fluoride is then applied to all of your teeth. Fluoride is a mineral that helps protect teeth against decay by strengthening the tooth enamel. Our dentist will then perform the dental exam. All of your teeth and gums are checked for signs of decay, gingivitis, and other oral problems. Sometimes, our dentist will decide to take dental X-rays to get a closer, more thorough look at your smile. If any dental issues were found, our dentist will discuss them with you and recommend one or more of our general and family dental services. Our dentist and team will make sure that you understand all of your treatment options. Then our dentist will form a treatment plan with you.
We invite you to contact Mill Creek General Dentistry today to learn more and to schedule your next visit with our dentist.
