At Family Dental Care in Greensburg, Indiana, Dr. Dickey and Dr. Conley are excited to boost your smile for the active days of summer with our dental cleaning and exam. According to the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), patients who receive regular dental cleanings and exams every six months benefit from improved oral health. Our dental cleanings are the perfect complement to your daily at-home care, brushing and flossing routine when it comes to protecting your oral health.

The AGD also says that regular dental cleanings and exams may help lower the risk for certain diseases, such as heart disease and stroke. Life-threatening medical conditions, such as oral cancer, can often be detected in their early stages during a dental exam. Regular dental cleanings and exams also help prevent gum disease, tooth decay and bad breath. Another benefit to regular cleanings and exams is that it allows us to detect and fix issues early on, when they are the easiest and most economically treated.

During your checkup, our Family Dental Care team will clean your teeth, perform an exam, and possibly take X-rays. We will remove tartar above and below the gum line, polish your teeth and floss them, and apply fluoride. We will also check for the following:

— Signs of tooth decay

— Your gum health

— Your bite

— Signs of tooth grinding or TMJ

— Infection or oral cancer
