Cleanings & Checkups

One of the best ways to keep your smile healthy is with regular cleanings and checkups. At Curtis Family Dentistry, we advise our patients to make these preventive visits a priority to help maintain their oral health and reduce dental costs. Kids and adults both need general dental care to keep their gums and teeth healthy and to catch oral health issues in the early stages. Home oral care is important, but so are routine professional cleanings. Most people should have two cleanings per year to help maintain healthy teeth and gums. This needs to be done more often if you have gingivitis or any level of gum disease. Professional cleanings by our hygienist include a periodontal exam to monitor your gum health. They are used to remove tartar and plaque that home care cannot, which can help stop gum infections and decay.

Comprehensive Dental Exams

At least once a year a comprehensive dental exam should be completed to monitor your oral health. Dr. Curtis performs a thorough exam using the latest dental technology to identify any issues that may need treatment. This includes chips, cracks or decay in teeth. Dental exams can also be used to check for other oral health issues. We offer oral cancer screenings that can be performed quickly during your regular exam to detect any of the early signs of oral cancer. On top of keeping your smile healthy, routine checkups and cleanings are the best way to reduce your family’s dental costs. Most insurance plans cover exams and cleanings as preventive care, for good reason. Keeping up with these routine visits can help prevent many dental problems and catch issues in the early stages when they are easier and less expensive to repair. Make sure you and your family receive your regular cleanings and checkups to maintain healthy smiles. Contact our office in Mooresville today to schedule your next checkups and cleanings.
