As is common knowledge, it is highly important to your oral health that you brush and floss your teeth every day. However, oral hygiene alone is not enough to achieve and maintain ideal oral health. You must also have a professional dental cleaning and checkup twice a year.

When you come in for your appointment, our hygienist will first use a small, metal tool to remove all plaque and tartar from your teeth. Then the hygienist will floss between each of your teeth. Depending on your needs, dental fluoride may be applied to the teeth. Then your teeth will be polished to give them extra shine.

Our dentist will then examine your teeth and gums, checking for any issues like tooth decay and gum disease. Dr. Damon P. Swenson may choose to take X-rays to get a closer look. If any dental problems were found, our dentist will discuss them with you and go over your treatment options. We want you to be able to take an active role in your dental treatment, so we will answer any questions you may have.

We welcome you to contact CrossPointe Dental today to learn more about professional dental cleanings and to schedule your next dental appointment in Orem, Utah.
