Dr. Bethaney B. Brenner recommends that every six months, you and your family schedule a teeth cleaning in Burlington, Connecticut. This appointment includes a professional teeth cleaning, fluoride, a dental exam, and dental X-rays. At the beginning of your appointment, our hygienist will remove all plaque and tartar from your teeth using a small, metal tool. Our hygienist will then floss your teeth, polish them, and apply fluoride. Fluoride is a mineral that helps protect your teeth against decay by strengthening the enamel. Our dentist will then examine all of your teeth and gums for signs of decay, gingivitis, and other oral problems. Sometimes, our dentist will decide to take dental X-rays to get a closer, more complete look at your smile. If any dental problems were found, our dentist will recommend one or more dental treatments to repair them. We will ensure that you understand all of your treatment options so that you can make an informed decision about your dental care. Our dentist will then form a treatment plan with you.
If you experience any dental pain or any other type of dental emergency, we urge you to contact our office as soon as possible. For more information and to schedule your next visit, contact our dental office today.
