At Felton Dental Care in Missoula, we are committed to excellence in dentistry, and to promoting dental health in all our patients. That’s why we want everyone to see us twice a year for a cleaning and checkup.
Does anyone really like having their teeth cleaned? Not really. And we understand that. There is all this prodding and scraping going on, along with strange noises. Sometimes we need to prop your jaw open in order to take an x-ray. We try to get everything done quickly and efficiently.
For the most part, though, cleanings are painless. The payoff is the peace of mind you get from knowing your teeth are as clean as can be, and that a professional has examined your teeth and gums. Our hygienists use those little round mirrors to inspect all along the gumline for any signs of inflammation, or other possible concerns.
As for all that scraping, that is when we remove any plaque and tartar from your teeth. The scraping is normal. The more tartar that has built up, the longer it is going to take to get the job done.
At Felton Dental Care in Missoula, we are committed to providing each patient with personalized care. Services include general and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule your next cleaning and checkup with us today.
