Doing the following activities on a regular basis will make your trip to see the dental team at Wellesley Family Dental quick and pleasant:
Floss once and brush your teeth 2-3 times daily.
Eat a healthy diet: vegetables, fruit, meat, dairy products and whole grain foods.
Visit Wellesley Family Dental’s hygienist for regular checkups and cleanings.
During a dental cleaning, our experienced dental hygienists are gentle and work hard to make you feel as comfortable as possible. We will remove plaque and tartar buildup on the teeth to prevent the development of tooth decay, gum disease, inflammation, and other potential issues. The teeth are also polished during a cleaning to remove stains and further buildups of plaque that may not be removed during regular tooth brushing. You can expect to walk away feeling refreshed with a brighter smile.
Comprehensive Dental Exams
During a typical dental exam, our dentists will check your oral health and examine your mouth, gums, teeth, jaw, and bite to detect for any dental problems. If a we find any issue (cavity, gum disease, etc.), we will work with you directly to create a specialized treatment plan. These visits help identify any tooth decay and early signs of gum disease or oral cancer through diagnostic x-rays and physical examination. Early detection of these conditions can help ensure effective treatment and prevent permanent damage. Additionally, we will discuss maintaining good oral hygiene and show you how to care for your teeth each day to prevent future issues.
The American Dental Association recommends coming in for a cleanings and comprehensive dental exams 2x a year. If you would like to schedule a cleaning or exam, feel free to call our office at 781-263-9900.
