Cleanings and Exams in Edmond, Ok

There’s a reason that everyone is familiar with the expression, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” It’s a truism that we can extend to just about every part of our lives. And it’s particularly true when it comes to your dental care.

Behind every healthy mouth is an excellent preventive care program. preventive care means a dedicated home care routine, regular cleanings, and examinations with Dr. Gray at our Edmond, OK, dental office.


Why Do I Need a Cleaning?

You’ve been told to brush and floss your teeth your entire life, and you’ve done a pretty good job following this rule. So why bother with professional cleanings? Professional cleanings performed by a trained dental hygienist are essential for several reasons. 

For one thing, cleanings are crucial for keeping plaque and tartar to an absolute minimum. Plaque, the sticky substance coating your teeth that you brush away every night, provides a home for the bacteria that lead to cavities and gum disease. Although brushing and flossing keep plaque at bay, these home tools can’t reach every nook and cranny in your mouth. Plaque is good at hiding, particularly in spots between your teeth and just beneath the gum line. When plaque stays in place for a long time, it hardens into tartar, or calculus, which can only be removed by a skilled hygienist using professional tools.

Why Regular Examinations Matter

Along with your regular cleanings, we also recommend regular examinations with Dr. Gray. During your exam, Dr. Gray will look for any potential problems that might be developing. Cleanings significantly reduce your risk for these problems. Still, there’s no way to guarantee that you will never get cavities or gum disease because several factors contribute to your chances of developing oral issues, including your genetics.

Exams allow us to screen you for cavities, gum disease, and other problems that could develop, like oral cancer. When you get examinations regularly, we can catch any issues early, before they cause pain or require more involved or invasive treatments. Whenever possible, we’d prefer to treat you with simple, conservative treatments, and we know that our patients prefer this as well. Dentistry should be comfortable, and regular examinations help keep it that way.

Even if it’s been a while since your last check-up, it’s never too late to start over and improve your oral health. Some patients have told us they were afraid to make an appointment because they have deep-seated anxiety about dental procedures or were fearful that they would get a lecture.

We will never lecture you or make you feel wrong about your dental health. We will provide you with advice and support to help you make decisions about your treatment. Life gets busy, and we know that sometimes people let regular dental care fall by the wayside. Now is your chance to make a change, and we’re excited to be a part of it!
