Dental cleanings might be the most common dental procedure. They are an essential part of the overall care and maintenance of your teeth, preventing the build-up of enamel-threatening plaque and helping fight decay before it develops.
Dr. David Cannon at Cannon Dental in Salt Lake City, Utah has years of experience providing gentle, patient-oriented cleaning for patients of all ages. He is a board-certified dentist with firm belief in putting the patient first.
What to Expect from Your Cleaning
Two cleanings a year can be enough for most patients to keep cavities at bay. While flossing and brushing goes a long way, a dental cleaning can reach deep crevices and hidden areas that can often go overlooked. It also gives Dr. Cannon an opportunity to examine your mouth and identify any problems, often before they start.
In addition to a visual inspection, your hygienist will use specialized tools to give your teeth a thorough cleaning and prevent the build-up of plaque and bacteria. They will check your gums for infection or recession, making sure the foundation of your smile is strong.
In cases where routine brushing and flossing are not enough, Dr. Cannon can also use fluoride or dental sealants to further protect your teeth from decay.
Dr. Cannon believes in a conservative approach, maintaining the health of your teeth and gums without pushing unnecessary treatment. His patient-oriented approach is one of many ways he works to make every patient comfortable and informed when receiving treatment. His office is designed to put patients of all ages at ease, and there are a variety of simple and safe solutions for patients experiencing anxiety or discomfort during their visit. Whatever your goals or needs, he will work closely with you to make sure you get the results you need, and the comfortable treatment you deserve.
