Why are teeth cleanings important?

Our friendly dentist, Dr. Thomas M. Kiefer, is committed to helping you have a beautiful, healthy smile. To help us accomplish this goal, our team recommends that you visit our office at least once every six months for a dental exam and cleaning. During the exam, we will inspect your mouth for signs of potential dental problems. One of the major reasons for the dental cleaning is to prevent and fight against the damaging effects of gum—or periodontal—disease. We recommend these frequent visits because the bacteria that cause gum disease will constantly return and cannot always be removed by simply brushing and flossing. We also recommend that you visit our practice if you experience any discomfort, pain, or a dental emergency.

What will happen during teeth cleanings?

During your dental cleaning, our friendly team will remove the plaque and tartar that contain bacteria, and then polish your teeth to give you the cleanest, brightest smile possible. After your teeth are clean, we will inspect your mouth for signs of complications. If you are interested in scheduling your next teeth cleaning in Marathon, Florida, or in any of the other services we offer, please feel free to contact us today. We are eager to care for your smile!
