Dental Hygiene and Cleaning Visits
Everyone—even young children—should see a dentist for routine hygiene visits. Why?Because we want to help you preserve your health and wellbeing. When troublesome conditions have time to develop, they can seriously harm your smile. By diagnosing and treating them early, we can help you maintain your good health.
For optimal oral health, we recommend visiting Arkansas River Valley Dentistry at least twice a year. With two visits every year, we can be vigilant about helping you address small problems.
During your visit, a professional hygienist will help you remove the bacteria and plaque you couldn’t remove on your own. Then one of our dentists will complete an oral exam to look for anything that requires advanced care. Following both, we’ll talk to you about your smile and recommend any additional care if we need to. If you have questions about your smile or the treatment we recommend, don’t hesitate to let us know.
Gum disease is an incredibly common—and incredibly destructive—oral health problem. It’s caused by an accumulation of bacteria along the gum line and can lead to symptoms like bleeding or inflamed gums, frequent bad breath, and even tooth loss. What’s more, studies have shown that gum disease patients face an increased risk of other health problems, such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and pre-term birth. But with periodontal therapy from our Clarksville office, we can help you manage your symptoms and improve your oral health.
