The American Dental Association provides a series of guidelines, recommendations, and informational tools to help consumers maintain strong teeth and a healthy mouth throughout their lives. This includes recommending that your brush your teeth each morning, and night, while also making sure to floss at least once each day, as part of an effective and consistent daily oral hygiene routine.
The ADA further recommends that you attend a routine dental checkup with a professionally trained dentist like Dr. Samy Samaan every six months. This basic, yet important, outpatient appointment is designed to clean your teeth and monitor the general health of your mouth.
The first phase of treatment starts with a dental hygienist performing a dental cleaning and polishing treatment. This is designed to thoroughly remove plaque, and tartar from your teeth, as well as polishing away minor surface stains.
A comprehensive dental exam will them be performed by Dr. Samaan. This will detect any dental caries as well as signs of gum disease and oral cancers. If he finds an area of concern he will help you understand your treatment options.
If chronic plaque acid buildup in your mouth have weakened the mineral density of your tooth enamel, Dr. Samaan might recommend a fluoride treatment to bolster the strength of your tooth enamel. This can help prevent cavities before your next dental exam. The concentrated fluoride gel will help bolster the mineral strength of your tooth enamel.
