Visiting a dentist regularly for routine and preventative care is vital for your oral health. While there is always a chance that you may need restorative or cosmetic dentistry in the future, it’s important that you have regular, repetitive cleanings and exams throughout your life. Experts recommend this process at twice a year, at least. If you have had extensive dental treatment in the past, you should visit every three to four months. If you rarely have cleanings or exams, you may be putting yourself at risk for larger, more expensive, and more painful problems down the road. Routine visits will allow a professional to thoroughly clean your teeth and identify any areas of concern. This is the most effective way to achieve optimal oral health.
Here is what you can expect during your first visit with us here at BRAIDC:
Cleaning. During your cleaning, tartar and plaque will be reduced as much as possible to keep your smile happy and healthy.

Oral exam. This includes your mouth, face, neck, and jaw. Your dentist will inspect these areas fully to ensure they are in good condition and to rule out any problems.
