General Cleanings and Exams

General Cleanings and Examinations in Fountain, CO

At Mesa Ridge Dental, we provide our community with the highest quality of affordable, preventative dentistry to our community. Our doctors focus on patients as individuals and are dedicated to promoting lasting oral health. As a part of every patient’s treatment plan, our Fountain general dentists provide cleaning and examinations to determine the health of your smile. These visits allow us to understand your current health and provide recommendations to meet your goals.

Bi-Annual Examinations

Our dentists see patients as young as three years old to help children establish excellent health habits at an early age. Visiting a dental office twice a year is essential to the lasting health of all patients’ smiles, however. During these check-ups, our doctors and assistants thoroughly examine your smile and can diagnose oral health concerns such as bite misalignment, gum disease, and tooth decay. Bi-annual examinations are a proactive measure to prevent disease and apply treatments before current conditions worsen. If any problems are found, we talk with you about your treatment options and can begin the services immediately. 

Our Fountain general dentists and assistants take the time to understand your dental concerns and aesthetic goals to promote your comfort. We understand that visiting the dentist, even for a bi-annual visit, can be stressful for some. We are experienced in treating patients with dental fears and anxieties and promote a positive visit through gentle care. 

Professional Dental Cleanings in Fountain

Many patients are diligent with their oral care at home, brushing twice a day and flossing at least once per day to maintain a smile healthy between visits. However, a professional cleaning twice a year ensures complete removal of debris, which can evolve into plaque and tartar if not removed promptly. These are the main causes of tooth decay and periodontal disease; tartar is difficult to remove with simple at-home care, and can only be effectively removed with a professional cleaning. We thoroughly clean all surfaces of teeth and apply fluoride, which strengthens the tooth enamel and protects against decay. 

Our hygienists also measure gum pockets to ensure your soft tissue is healthy and that there are no signs of periodontal disease. If soft tissue pockets are deep, indicating gum recession caused by disease, we can recommend deep cleanings to prevent advanced periodontitis.
