Dr. Jennifer Ortega and our team recommend that you visit us for a dental cleaning in Winter Park, Florida, at least twice a year. Even if you brush and floss perfectly, professional cleanings are needed so that tartar buildup can be removed and so that our dentist can detect any dental issues early on. We have found that our patients feel more at ease if they know what to expect when they visit Jennifer Ortega DMD. Because of this, we are more than happy to inform you about the dental cleanings and exams process.
Our dentist or hygienist will use a special metal tool to scrape built-up plaque and tartar from your teeth and from below the gum line. This can help prevent gum disease, tooth decay, bad breath, and other problems. They will then polish and floss your teeth.
Dr. Jennifer Ortega will then closely examine your gums, mouth, and each of your teeth. Signs of gum disease, decay, and other issues will be checked for. Our dentist’s goal is to help you reach and keep ideal oral health. This includes detecting and treating any dental issues as soon as possible.
Depending on your age, your oral health, and any symptoms detected, our dentist may recommend that you have dental X-rays taken. These X-rays can detect issues that may otherwise remain unspotted.
We invite you to contact our dental office at 407.645.3636 today for more information about dental cleanings and our other preventive services and to set up your next visit. We look forward welcoming you to our dental family!
