Dental Examinations & Hygiene Visits

Dental Examinations & Hygiene Visits

At Back Bay Family Dentistry, we recommend dental examinations and hygiene visits for most patients every 6 months. Patients suffering from gum diseases may need to be seen more often to ensure symptoms don’t worsen. Routine dental examinations and hygiene visits can help prevent gingivitis and gum disease. For patients that already suffer from gum disease, dental hygiene visits can help manage the progression of the disease. Benefits of dental examinations and hygiene visits are:

  • A healthier more beautiful smile
  • More fresh breath
  • Removal of plaque build-up

How Can I Get a Dental Examination and Hygiene Visit?

The first step to getting a dental examination and hygiene visit is to contact Back Bay Family Dentistry and request an appointment. During your dental examination and hygiene appointment, Dr. Parker or Dr. Miner will:

  • Examine your overall oral health and hygiene
  • Take 3-D digital images/x-rays if necessary
  • Determine your risk of tooth decay, gum disease and other oral issues
  • Check your jaw and bite
  • Remove plaque, stains and debris from teeth
  • Determine whether fluoride treatments are necessary
  • Determine if any dental treatment is necessary

If you would like a dental examination and hygiene visit with Dr. Parker or Dr. Miner, please contact the staff at Back Bay Family Dentistry to schedule an appointment. If you have any past x-rays or records, please be sure to supply them to our office. We look forward to helping you achieve a healthier, beautiful smile.
