The American Dental Association was formed to help keep consumers informed about the wide range of topics and products necessary to maintain good oral health. To aid in this worthy endeavor, the ADA offers a series of suggestions. This includes practicing a consistent daily oral hygiene routine, as well as visiting a dentist’s office every six months for a routine dental checkup.
Here at Dr. William Robison’s dental office in Las Vegas, Nevada, each dental checkup starts with a dental hygienist performing a thorough dental cleaning. Once all signs of calculus and plaque have been removed from your teeth, the hygienist will then polish each tooth in your smile. This simple treatment designed to remove minor surface stains. If you have more significant dental stains Dr. William Robison can help you understand your professional whitening options.
Once the dental cleaning has been completed, Dr. William Robison will examine your teeth and gums. If he detects any signs of cavities or gum disease he will present you with the applicable treatment options.
