Dr. Hamilton Calder, Dr. Winston Faltine, and Dr. Craig Pettey strongly encourage you to take good care of your smile by keeping up on oral hygiene and visiting our office every six months for a routine cleaning and exam. But why are dental cleanings and exams so important? Well, our Comfort Dental Excellence dental team would like to tell you why. These appointments can:

Deeply clean your teeth: The cleaning treatment involved at your appointment is the only treatment that can remove plaque and tartar from your smile, which are harmful substances that promote and create gum disease. If you keep up with your appointments, you’ll have a greater chance of saving your smile and oral health by preventing dangerous dental issues.

Polish your smile: Once your teeth are clean, our team will thoroughly polish your smile and remove the minor stains on the surfaces of your smile. This can help you have shiny, clean, and attractive teeth, which could also help boost your self-confidence.

Detect and fix dental issues: During your appointment, our dental team will examine your smile and look for any dental issues you might have, like tooth decay, gum disease, and enamel erosion. We’ll also look for signs of oral cancer. If any dental issues are spotted, Dr. Kevin Harris will explain your treatment options.

We will be more than happy to give you the answers you’re looking for so you can feel more confident in the dental chair. We look forward to hearing from you!
