Cleanings and Checkups

At Fair Lakes Family Dentistry, we take great pride in our ability to deliver excellent preventive care to your family. Routine cleanings and checkups are a key component of maintaining optimal oral health, which can greatly impact your overall quality of life. Unless you are at greater risk for certain oral health complications, these routine exams should take place about every six months. We have a talented team of professionals that use this time to evaluate your entire oral health and detect problems at their earliest, most treatable stage.

When visiting Fair Lakes Family Dentistry, you can trust us for a comfortable and rewarding experience every time. We offer amenities to keep each member of your family relaxed and at ease. Dr. Nail is a talented and compassionate dentist who deeply value the importance of fostering healthy smiles through routine dental exams.

Comprehensive Dental Exams

During your preventive care visit, our team will perform a thorough assessment of your teeth and gums. We use low radiation digital x-rays to detect tiny cavities before they become a serious threat to your dental health. We also take a close look at your gum health to ensure there is no evidence of recession or disease. If a deep cleaning, filling or other treatment is needed, you can trust our team to explain the process and schedule it at a time that works best for you.

In addition to receiving a comprehensive dental exam, you can also expect a professional cleaning. This allows us to address stubborn stains and plaque buildup that your brushing and flossing habits fail to remove. Once plaque has hardened into tartar, only a professional cleaning from your dentist can remove the harmful substance from your teeth and gums. Hardened plaque can lead to disease, decay or infection if left alone.

Fair Lakes Family Dentistry welcomes patients of all ages for routine dental visits. We offer a full menu of restorative and cosmetic dental services, but preventive care always comes first. Keep in mind that annual exams and cleanings are typically covered under most insurance plans. For those without insurance, we offer CareCredit and an in-house dental savers plan. We look forward to helping you protect and maintain a confident and healthy smile through all stages of life. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
