Cleanings & Prevention Plan for Healthy Sioux City Smiles
A healthy mouth does more than chew food and look attractive when you smile. It contributes to the wellness of your whole body, reducing risk of diabetes, stroke, heart attack, Alzheimer’s disease, respiratory problems, and many other serious health issues. While you have the chance 24/7/365 to safeguard own oral health, professional care is essential. Dr. Dona Prince and her team keep patients in the Sioux City area smiling with a cleanings & prevention plan. The plan includes risk for decay and analysis of diet and lifestyle to customize a prevention plan designed for you.
The Importance of Professional Cleaning
Brushing your teeth after meals and flossing before bedtime is crucial to keep tooth decay and gum disease at bay. Please continue doing it! Yet, even the most conscientious individual needs the assistance of a trained hygiene team.
During a cleaning, the hygienist uses special instruments and techniques to reach places you can’t with a brush and floss. Stains, the sticky film of plaque, trapped bits of food debris, and tartar – hardened plaque at the gum line, are meticulously removed. The hygienist checks carefully for signs of oral problems, bringing them to Dr. Prince’s attention during the examination portion of the appointment.
Dental problems do not simply disappear on their own. They get worse. That results in pain, embarrassment, and costly, extensive treatment. With regular checkups, dental issues are intercepted early, when they can be resolved with minimal discomfort and expense.
Plan for Dental Wellness
You can plan for dental health, just like you plan for a meal, vacation, or a special event. Dr. Prince and her team make it easy. They design a customized strategy to help you enjoy optimal oral wellness by preventing problems. Your personalized cleanings & prevention plan may include:
- Twice yearly visits – perhaps more frequently if you have an existing health issue that impacts your teeth and mouth
- Professional cleaning
- Comprehensive examination of teeth, soft tissues, face, and neck
- Oral cancer screening
- Topical fluoride treatment to strengthen tooth enamel
- Dental sealants to reduce the risk of tooth decay
