Regular Checkups Mean a Healthier Smile
Not many people can keep all their natural teeth in place – much less in good shape – without routine checkups from a skilled dentist. Regular dental cleanings and exams at Smith & Wetterhus Dentistry form the foundation for a beautiful and healthy smile.
For optimal comfort, we can use a local anesthetic during your checkup, plus we offer both inhaled sedation and oral conscious sedation if desired. Providing you comfortable dental treatment is our highest priority.
Your appointment will usually begin with our dental hygienist. They will review your dental history, look over your teeth and gums, perform an oral cancer screening, and take X-rays if needed. Next, they will thoroughly clean and polish each of your teeth, paying special attention to hard-to-reach areas you might miss when brushing and flossing.
After your cleaning, either Dr. Smith or Dr. Wetterhus will review your X-rays and perform a complete dental exam to check for any problems. They will make recommendations for other treatments if they are needed to keep your teeth and smile in good shape. These treatments could include fluoride applications or tooth sealants to help prevent cavities, or custom mouthguards for athletics or to stop harmful teeth grinding.
For your best smile, stay up to date on your Puyallup dental cleanings and exams. Call us today at 253-999-9419 to set up your next visit.
