Cleanings & Checkups

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.

Comprehensive Dental Exams

At Gordon Dental of Leawood, we take the time to ensure that all of our patients receive the most exceptional dental care. While some dentists and hygienists rush through dental cleanings and exams so that they can see as many patients per day as possible, Dr. Gordon and his staff are committed to providing excellent services with patient-centered care. We take the time to provide comprehensive dental exams because we understand that many medical issues, outside of oral health concerns, are actually present inside the mouth before symptoms occur elsewhere in the body. For instance, diabetes, leukemia, and cancer often present signs in the gums and teeth that are frequently discovered by a dentist before patients are aware that there is a concern.

Gordon Dental of Leawood is committed to the health of our patients. By providing comprehensive dental exams, we can help promote long-term health inside the mouth and throughout the entire body. With regular dental cleanings and exams, we are able to provide the highest quality dental care available. Contact our office today to schedule an appointment for you or a family member.
