Outside of daily flossing and brushing the teeth, there is nothing more important to your oral health care than routine dental cleanings and checkups. The American Dental Association recommends that everyone should visit the dentist for a regular cleaning and checkup at least once a year, twice a year for those who are prone to cavities or have other oral health issues. Cleanings and checkups are particularly important to the health of your entire mouth. It is during routine appointments that your dentist can catch any early warning signs of trouble and provide early intervention. At Gordon Dental of Leawood, we are committed to helping patients keep their mouths clean, healthy and beautiful with general dentistry.
Dental cleanings and checkups do not have to be a dreaded experience. During your appointment, our dental hygienist will clean and polish your teeth to remove any damaging plaque that is present. Your teeth will be thoroughly examined for any issues with your teeth, gums, tongue, or other areas inside the mouth. The dental professionals at Gordon Dental in Leawood are committed to providing patients with a comfortable dental experience. If warm pillows and blankets are not enough to help you relax, please speak with us about other options to help settle any anxieties you may have.
