While taking care of your smile at home through regular brushing and flossing is essential to keeping your smile in good health, it is also important that you visit our office on a regular basis for dental cleanings and exams. We typically recommend that our patients visit Dr. Eric Cornelius twice each year for a routine cleaning and exam; some conditions may necessitate more frequent dentist visits. During your routine appointments, our dentist and dental team will:
Thoroughly clean your teeth, removing any plaque or tartar that have not been removed during your normal brushing and flossing
Polish your teeth, which helps to remove surface stains and gives your smile a healthy, bright shine
Examine your smile for signs of tooth decay, periodontal (gum) disease, and other forms of damage and disease
Check any existing restorations (crowns, fillings, bridges, etc.) for needed repairs or maintenance
Review your dental hygiene habits with you and provide any needed recommendations on how you can improve your at-home oral care
If needed, our dentist will recommend preventive or restorative treatments to improve your dental health. For more information and to schedule your next teeth cleaning in San Antonio, Texas, we encourage you to contact us today at Nautical Dental.
