Professional dental cleanings should be a regular part of your oral hygiene routine. A teeth cleaning at our Washington DC dentist office should be performed at least twice a year as a preventive measure. A teeth cleaning can help prevent the development of tooth decay, tooth loss, and periodontal disease. Teeth cleanings contribute to protecting the longevity of the teeth and gums. Maintaining your natural smile helps support a stable bite and prevents the need for more complex dental procedures.
Why are Dental Cleanings so Important?
Routine teeth cleanings and dental examinations allow us to identify problems in the earliest stages for the most conservative treatment options. Dr. Eskow will screen for cavities, gum disease, TMJ disorders and oral cancer at your dental cleaning in his Washington DC dentist office.
A routine oral health visit with Dr. Eskow includes:
- Comprehensive oral exam
- Cone beam 3D dental imaging
- Oral cancer screening
- Periodontal exam
- TMJ and occlusal analysis
- Consultation with the dentist
At home, brushing and flossing at least twice a day can help keep your teeth clean in between professional cleanings. Our staff can help patients of all ages learn practical techniques for brushing and flossing for improved oral health. The American Dental Association recommends children and adults visit a dentist twice a year for an exam and professional dental cleaning.
Advanced Dental Technology
Bethesda Dental Implant Center utilizes the latest in dental technology at our Washington DC dentist office including the iCAT cone beam imaging system which takes three dimensional scans of the oral cavity and surrounding areas. This allows Dr. Eskow to get a clear picture of what is going on with the teeth, bone and joints as well as the soft tissue structures. The scans are complete in just seconds and the technology is much more comfortable when compared to traditional bite wing x-rays. We utilize this imaging for all of our treatments including preventive care, TMJ treatment, dental implant planning, bone grafting and other procedures.
