Do you want premium oral health care? At Central Dental, we offer both simple and complex dental treatments to help restore a healthy and dazzling smile. Our general dentistry services offer preventative care such as cleanings, x-rays, and minor dental treatments like filling cavities. Our Arkansas dentists inspect teeth closely and educate patients about basic dental care. Dental Check-Ups You need to see your dentist for a check-up at least every six months. This procedure usually takes between 30 minutes to an hour. During the check-up, your dentist examines your teeth, gums, and mouth, to look for signs of oral problems. If you have any visible oral problems, your dentist may recommend a particular treatment or may refer you to a specialist such as a periodontist or orthodontist for further treatment. Usually, the dental check-up consists of cleaning and polishing. Our dentist may polish your teeth using a rotating rubber cup or brush to remove any remaining plaque or stains. He may also use a special tool, called a hand scaler, to scrape and remove tartar build-up from your teeth. X-Rays Our dentist may take dental X-rays as part of our general dentistry services. This will help us find problems with the teeth, mouth, and jaw. X-ray pictures may show cavities, hidden dental structures such as wisdom teeth, and bone loss not seen during a visual examination. We may also conduct dental X-rays as follow-up after dental treatments. Contact us today if you have any questions or concerns. Our staff will be more than happy to answer all your questions.
