What can you expect from your next dental visit in Pleasant Hill?

Has it been a while since the last time you visited one of our Pleasant Hill, CA dentists--Dr. Michael Huguet, Dr. Mariangela Verano or Dr.oral hygiene Tran Hoang? If so, then you’ve probably forgotten what goes into a regular dental checkup. Let us dispel all the myths and give you a clear picture of what you can expect when you walk through our doors for routine dental care.

Every six months you should be visiting us for routine cleanings and exams. Why? Because this is the best way to prevent dental issues from arising. A professional dental cleaning is the only way to fully remove plaque and tartar buildup. Tartar is the leading cause of gum disease and can’t be removed with your at-home toothbrush. Only our Pleasant Hill general dentist has the proper tools to remove tartar to prevent gum disease and decay.

If this is the first time you are getting your teeth professionally cleaned in a while then we will not only perform a thorough cleaning and evaluation but we may also run a series of x-rays to check for dental problems that we may not be able to detect through a physical exam alone. During your cleaning we will remove plaque and tartar as well as surface stains.

If it’s been a while since your last visit we may also find decay or other issues present. If this is the case then we will need to come up with a treatment plan. You may require a dental filling, a root canal or dental crown. If we find any issues that need to be addressed we will discuss the best course of action.

If you need to schedule your six-month cleaning then it’s time to turn to the dental experts you can trust to give you a clean smile every time. Call Michael Huguet & Associates in Pleasant Hill, CA today to schedule your consultation.
