Cleanings & Prevention
Expert Dental Cleanings for Beautiful Smiles in Roanoke Rapids
At our Roanoke Rapids practice, we take care of our patients’ oral health. Dr. Thomas Fleming and our team are experts in dental care, helping families achieve bright smiles for a lifetime. Our preventive approach emphasizes education and routine cleanings, minimizing health concerns before they can grow too advanced.
We offer professional dental cleanings for patients of all ages. Our team treats every patient with respect and kindness, and our office environment is very lighthearted. We aim to make you feel comfortable at every visit, especially the checkups and cleanings.
The Importance of a Clean Smile
Brushing, flossing, and dental visits are the elements of healthy teeth and gums. The daily care protects oral structures, and the routine appointments are meant to be a quick checkup and deeper cleaning, eliminating plaque and calculus buildup. Patients that maintain their home care and see us every six months experience a brighter smile and generally require fewer treatments.
A cleaner smile slows or stops tooth decay, reducing the risks of cavities. Brushing and flossing eliminates food particles that build up each day. Bacteria feed off these particles and spread, eventually eating away at decay and soft tissue. This is why neither daily hygiene nor dentist visits are enough to prevent health concerns on their own, as decay or gingivitis can develop without apparent symptoms.
How We Maintain your Family’s Oral Health
Dr. Fleming and our hygienists are thorough when performing examinations and polishing teeth. When necessary, we take X-rays and go over our findings with patients. Dr. Fleming will recommend treatment options and give patients the first choice in their care. Throughout the exam, we answer any questions and instruct in ways to improve oral hygiene.
Cleaning teeth is the easy part. We chart the gum line, making sure it is within normal parameters, then we remove the hard layer of calculus buildup. The teeth are brushed with a special tool, and then we floss them.
Traditional Values, Quality Care
Dr. Fleming and our team are focused on patients and their needs, not our bottom line. We protect our patients’ well-being and deliver excellent dentistry. We are passionate about helping people smile again without feeling self-conscious or feeling as though their teeth don’t function properly.
