Regular Dental Cleanings & Exams

Posted .

Dr. Thomas Ouellette and our team recommend that you visit us for a dental cleaning in Denver, Colorado, at least twice a year. Even if you brush and floss perfectly, professional cleanings are needed so that tartar buildup can be removed and so that our dentist can detect any dental issues early on. We have found that our patients feel more at ease if they know what to expect when they visit Thomas E. Ouellette, DDS, PC. As a result, we happy to tell you about dental cleanings and exams.

Dental Cleaning
Our dentist or hygienist will use a special tool to scrape built-up plaque and tartar from your teeth and from below the gum line. This can help prevent gum disease, tooth decay, bad breath, and other issues. They will then polish and floss each tooth.

Dental Examination
Dr. Thomas Ouellette will then examine each of your teeth and your gums and mouth thoroughly. Signs of gum disease, decay, and other issues will be sought out. Our dentist’s goal is to help you maintain your oral health. This includes detecting and treating any dental issues as soon as possible. If needed, dental X-rays may also be taken
