While brushing and flossing your teeth is very important to your dental health, it is also imperative that you visit your dentist regularly. Dr. Chad Catron and our team recommend that you and your child come in for a professional dental cleaning in Stilwell, Oklahoma, at least once every six months. These appointments allow our hygienist to thoroughly clean your teeth and for our dentist to examine your gums and teeth for any issues or potential issues. In this way, dental issues can be treated while they are still minor. Other dental problems can be avoided altogether.

Professional Dental Cleaning
When you come in for your appointment, our hygienist will first use a small, metal tool to remove all plaque and tartar from your teeth. Then the hygienist will floss between each of your teeth. Depending on your needs, dental fluoride may be applied. Then your teeth will be polished to give them extra shine.

Dental Exam
Then our dentist will examine your teeth and gums thoroughly. They will check your gums for signs of gum disease and other issues. Our dentist will then perform an oral cancer screening. They will decide whether or not you need dental X-rays taken.

If any dental problems were found, our dentist will discuss them with you and go over your treatment options. We want you to be able to take an active role in your dental treatment, so we will answer any questions you may have. Of course, the final decision about your treatment plan is yours to make.
