The importance of professional teeth cleanings and examinations

At Gateway Oral Health Center of St. George, Utah, Dr. Bryce Eagar and his team provide professional teeth cleanings and oral examinations to new and returning patients. In fact, the American Dental Association recommends that everyone, regardless of gender and age, visit a dental provider twice a year for these preventative services. With professional teeth cleanings, also known as oral prophylaxis, and visual examinations with a dentist, patients can both achieve and maintain oral health and wellness with our providers.

Why are routine dental examinations and cleanings important?

Exams and cleanings help remove plaque, tartar, and surface stains from teeth that can lead to periodontal disease, tooth decay, and other oral health problems. Routine dental care also helps to identify any early signs of these problems so that they can be treated before they become more serious. This saves time and energy for everyone involved!

What can I expect during my appointment?

During your visit, one of our experienced and skilled hygienists at our practice will thoroughly clean your teeth using special instruments. We will also take x-rays if necessary. After the cleaning, Dr. Eagar will perform a comprehensive examination of your mouth, teeth, gums, and throat. He will look for any signs of gum disease, oral cancer, tooth decay, and other problems. If you have any questions or dental concerns, Dr. Eagar will be happy to address them.

What if I am anxious about going to the dentist?

We understand that some patients may feel anxious about visiting the dentist. Our team is available to ensure that you feel comfortable and relaxed throughout your entire appointment. We offer our sedation dentistry services for our patients who may need a little extra help to feel at ease, regardless of what they have done, whether it is laser teeth cleaning or extensive restorative dentistry.
