Choose preventative care for a healthy, happy smile
At Great Lakes Family Dental Group in Livonia, Michigan, we believe it’s important to come in twice a year for oral hygiene visits. It’s still important to brush and floss daily, of course. But these visits provide an additional level of preventative care that is absolutely crucial.
During these appointments, a dental hygienist will scale your teeth -- removing tartar build-up. They will also polish the surface of your teeth to remove minor stains, and may offer you a fluoride treatment.
Some of our patients refer to their oral hygiene visit as a “teeth-cleaning” appointment, but it’s actually much more than a simple cleaning. We use the time with you to check your teeth and gums for any signs of a problem, so we’re able to take action during the early stages.
