Enjoy Excellent Oral Health With Regular Cleanings and Exams

Dental cleanings and exams form the cornerstone of our general dentistry services. Without regular checkups, it’s difficult to ensure the beauty and function of your teeth. That’s why we, along with the American Dental Association, recommend that you have a cleaning and exam twice a year. Doing so gives us the opportunity to catch small dental problems and provide treatment before they can do extensive damage to your smile.

Several things will happen during your dental exam and cleaning:

  • Your hygienist will take a dental history and carefully listen to any concerns you have about your teeth or gums.
  • We’ll use digital X-rays to take detailed images of your teeth, roots, nerves, and bones.
  • We’ll perform a complete dental exam, including an oral cancer screening. A digital scanner will be used to help spot issues with your teeth and gums, including cavities and bite alignment.
  • Your hygienist will thoroughly clean and polish your teeth, removing plaque and tartar from all the areas you might miss at home. If you’re a new patient, we may schedule your teeth cleaning for another appointment, depending on your circumstances.
  • Your dentist will examine your mouth, double-checking any areas of concern noted by the hygienist.
  • We’ll lay out treatment options for any problems we find, giving you the information you need to make sound decisions about your care.

We Offer Other General Dentistry Services, Too

Besides dental cleanings and exams, you’ll have access to other general dentistry treatments at our practice. If we find any problems during your exam, we may recommend one or both of these treatments:

  • Nonsurgical Gum Disease Treatment โ€“ We’ll perform a deep cleaning on your gums to remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria from around and below your gumline.
  • Custom-Fit Mouthguards โ€“ We can have a professional mouthguard made for athletic use, to prevent teeth grinding, or to relieve TMJ symptoms.

Call us today at 207-295-0990 to schedule an appointment. Don’t risk your only smile. Brunswick general dentistry from Kathleen S. Winn, DMD will help you keep it healthy and bright. You can also make an appointment online.

Common Questions About General Dentistry
What is general dentistry?

Several dental services fall under general dentistry. We offer dental exams and cleanings, gum disease treatment, and custom-fit mouthguards to protect your teeth. Routine general dentistry goes a long way toward keeping your smile bright and your oral health optimal.

Should I use mouthwash?

Using mouthwash can be a beneficial addition to your oral hygiene routine. It can help freshen your breath, reach areas that brushing and flossing may miss, and reduce the bacteria that cause plaque and gum disease. However, it’s important to choose a mouthwash that suits your specific needs and follow the instructions carefully. Remember, mouthwash is not a substitute for regular brushing and flossing, but it can be a helpful complement to maintain good oral health.

Do I need dental X-rays?

We may recommend dental X-rays to ensure comprehensive oral care. With advancements in technology, digital X-rays are now widely used, offering enhanced safety. They use significantly less radiation compared to traditional X-rays, making them a safer option. Digital X-rays provide detailed images for accurate diagnoses, helping us identify potential issues early on.
