Sherrill Dental Arts
Providing General and Cosmetic Dentistry
After the examination is complete, one of experienced hygienists will perform a complete cleaning of your teeth. A professional cleaning is encouraged twice a year to help in the prevention of cavities and to ensure timely treatment of any oral health conditions. This cleaning is secondary to the oral hygiene that you complete at home on a daily basis. We strongly encourage our patients to brush and floss their teeth twice a day.
Our team is enthusiastic and educated in providing a strong foundation for the best possible oral hygiene. We are committed to providing the highest quality of care for our patients.
The Dental Examination
A complete dental examination and cleaning should be completed twice a year for children and adults of all ages. During your initial examination, our staff will take a complete set of x-rays to ensure the health of your gums, teeth and jaw. While this procedure is not mandatory, it is recommended for once a year.
After the x-rays are complete, you will go through a thorough examination of your teeth, gums, tongue and jaw. Each tooth will be inspected for cavities, plaque and damage by using a small dental pick and mirror.
