At Omega Family Dental in Little Rock, Arkansas, Dr. Rebecca Barfield and our team are excited to help you get your smile ready for summer with our gentle dental cleaning. According to the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), patients who receive dental cleanings regularly every six months benefit from improved oral health. If you have an oral health condition like gum disease, you may need to come in more often. Our dental cleanings are the perfect complement to your daily at-home care, brushing and flossing routine, to protect your oral health.

The AGD also says that regular dental cleanings may help lower the risk for certain diseases, such as heart disease and stroke. Life-threatening medical conditions, such as oral cancer, can often be detected in their early stages during a dental exam. Regular dental checkups and cleanings can also help prevent gum disease, tooth decay and even bad breath. Another benefit to regular dental cleanings is that it allows us to detect and fix issues early on, when they are most easily, economically and least invasively treated.

During your gentle dental cleaning and exam, our Omega Family Dental team will clean your teeth, perform an exam, and take X-rays. We will also remove tartar above and below the gum line, as well as polish your teeth and floss them. We will also check for the following:

— Signs of tooth decay
— Your gum health
— Your bite
— Signs of tooth grinding or TMJ
— Infection or oral cancer

So if you are desiring a confident smile for the active days of summer, schedule your gentle dental cleaning with our skilled dentist, Dr. Rebecca Barfield in Little Rock, Arkansas, at 501.228.6360!
