Regular dental cleaning allows both your dentist and hygienists to keep your teeth healthy. By removing plaque and “dental calculus” (sometimes called tartar--which is hardened plaque), we lower the chances of tooth decay or periodontal disease.
As part of your dental cleaning (the fancy term is “prophylaxis”), we also floss and polish your teeth. The polishing removes stains and keeps your smile bright and healthy.
Dental cleaning requires less than an hour at our Virginia Beach office.
Most people should come to Dr. Ronald Fuhrmann’s office every six months--twice a year. These routine visits allow us to examine your teeth, and spot problems early--before they become major.
Based on our examination, we may make recommendations for further treatment appropriate to what we find. Sometimes it may just take more frequent visits; with other conditions, more extensive treatments may be indicated.
