Ideally, your daily oral hygiene routine should consist of brushing your teeth twice each day, as well as flossing at least once. This is intended to remove food material, bacterial deposits, and plaque before they can harden into tartar, promote plaque acids, or promote other oral health conditions.
It’s also worth noting that the American Dental Association also recommends having a routine dental checkup performed twice each year by a professionally trained dentist like Dr. Chad Gubler.
These convenient outpatient appointments are designed to thoroughly clean and polish your teeth while also monitoring your overall oral health. This can help detect developing oral health problem for preventative treatment.
One of Dr. Chad Gubler’s dental hygienist will start by performing a thorough dental cleaning. This will remove all traces of hardened tartar from your teeth. This will also include a dental polishing treatment to remove minor dental stains from the teeth in your smile.
The next phase of the checkup involves Dr. Chad Gubler performing a comprehensive dental exam. If he detects any cavities or periodontal health problems, he will discuss the treatment options available. This might also include recommending a preventative measure such as a fluoride treatment or dental sealants.
Dr. Chad Gubler will also administer a basic oral cancer screening to detect any early signs of oral or pharyngeal cancer. If you live in the Henderson, Nevada, area and you have an oral health concern, you should call (702) 558-9977 to schedule a dental checkup at Gubler Dental.
