Teeth Cleanings & Dental Checkups
Part of good dental care — and indeed, good health care — is preventing tooth decay, gum disease, and other potentially painful (and expensive) problems with regular cleanings and checkups. The friendly, professional team at Eltek Dental includes hygienists trained to thoroughly clean and protect your teeth, gums, and mouth. They can also provide guidance and tips for at-home oral hygiene and address any questions or concerns you have about your smile.
Most dental insurance plans allow for a cleaning and checkup every 6 or 9 months. If you don’t have dental insurance, you should still get preventive dental care at least once a year. Even if you brush and floss daily as recommended, a professional cleaning is more thorough and allows the dentist to perform a quick checkup and identify any early warning signs of cavities, gum disease, or even oral cancer. Early discovery is usually the key to keeping dental problems from becoming painful and expensive.
I'm ashamed to admit that I hadn't been to the dentist in over 7 years. When I went this time, I was
convinced I was going to get some bad news. The team was very informative and thorough as they
examined my teeth. Turns out, there was nothing too bad to worry about. Between the x-rays,
photographs and cleaning I learned more about my teeth in two hours than I had probably all my
life. It was a great experience and I will definitely be coming back here more often!
