Dr. Damon T. Armstrong recommends that you and your family schedule a teeth cleaning in Blackfoot, Idaho, at least every six months. This appointment includes a professional teeth cleaning, fluoride, a dental exam, and dental X-rays.
Our hygienist will first scrape all of the plaque and tartar from your teeth using a small, metal tool. Then our hygienist will floss your teeth and polish them. Fluoride, which is a mineral that helps protect your teeth from decay, is then applied. Our dentist will then perform a dental exam. All of your teeth and gums will be checked for signs of decay, gingivitis, and other dental issues. Sometimes, our dentist will perform dental X-rays to get a closer, more thorough look at your smile. If any dental issues were found, our dentist will recommend one or more of our general and family dental services. We will make sure that you understand all of your treatment options so that you can make an informed decision about your dental care.
We urge you to contact Armstrong Dental immediately if you experience dental pain or any other type of dental emergency. Feel free to contact our dental office today to learn more and to schedule your next visit with our dentist.
