Dental Cleanings and Checkups

Having your teeth professionally cleaned and checked once or twice a year is not only beneficial to your oral health, but it can benefit the health of your entire body. Riverwood Dental in Vinings, GA provides comprehensive dental checkups and cleanings as part of our extensive menu of dental services in the Cumberland area. Our family dental practice understands the importance of preventive dental care. Regular cleanings and checkups are the key to keeping your mouth healthy at any stage of life.

We have a caring team of dental professionals who are committed to providing a rewarding routine visit for each member of your family. These visits include a thorough cleaning of your teeth and a gentle checkup of your entire mouth. A professional teeth cleaning removes any damaging plaque or tartar that has built up on your teeth over time. Plaque is made up of thousands of bacteria that will eat away at the tooth enamel if not removed. A cleaning from your dentist is the only way to remove plaque once it has hardened on your teeth and gums. Regular cleanings and exams help you avoid decay, gum disease and other disruptive dental issues down the road.

Why Regular Cleanings and Checkups Matter

  1. Plaque and Tartar Removal
    Professional teeth cleaning eliminates plaque and tartar buildup, preventing bacterial growth that can lead to tooth decay and gum disease.
  2. Preventive Dental Care
    Routine checkups help identify potential dental issues early, preventing more significant problems down the road.
  3. Oral Health and Overall Well-being
    We recognize the connection between oral health and overall body health, emphasizing the importance of regular dental visits for holistic well-being.

Comprehensive Dental Exams

Riverwood Dental proudly provides the most complete and comprehensive dental exam using the best that modern dentistry has to offer. We understand the connection between your oral health and the health of your entire body. By keeping regular dental appointments, our doctors have the unique ability to notice even the slightest changes in your oral health that may indicate an issue that needs to be addressed.

Our comprehensive exams go beyond a visual evaluation; they include:

Visible Evaluation
Thorough examination by our dentist to identify any visible issues or changes in oral health.

Gum Measurement
Precise measurement of your gums to detect and address potential gum disease.

Oral Cancer Screening
Regular screenings for oral cancer to catch any abnormalities early on.

Dental X-rays
Necessary dental x-rays to provide a complete picture of your oral health.

Our commitment is to promote optimal oral health and long-term vitality. By addressing even subtle changes during routine checkups, we can proactively manage your oral well-being.

Deep Cleanings

While daily brushing and flossing are essential, professional deep cleanings are equally vital. Our skilled dental hygienists and dentists utilize a combination of ultrasonic and handheld tools to:

  1. Remove Plaque Build-up
    Thoroughly remove plaque from tooth surfaces, preventing decay and gum disease.
  2. Polish Teeth
    Polish teeth to remove stains, revealing a brighter and healthier smile.

For those with dental anxiety, our practice offers sedation dentistry to ensure a relaxing and stress-free experience.
