Children and adults alike should visit the dentist at least twice a year for routine dental exams and cleanings. At Summerwood Family Dental, we strive to make your and your family’s checkups run as smoothly and efficiently as possible. With the help of our highly trained hygienists, Dr. Spaniel will carefully examine your mouth for signs of any potential problems. Digital X-rays and other advanced technologies will be used to get an up-close look at your teeth and gums. If a dental problem is detected, Dr. Spaniel will explain your treatment options in detail to you, including the advantages and disadvantages of each.
During your professional cleaning, one of our hygienists will use special instruments to clean your teeth, focusing on the tiny nooks and crannies of your mouth — areas that are not easily reached with a regular toothbrush — where plaque and bacteria often reside. Once cleaned, your teeth will be polished for a beautiful finish. Our team can also go over the proper brushing and flossing techniques to help you maintain optimal oral hygiene at home.
