Our team at Snowy River Dental in Bellevue, Idaho, is happy to get your smile ready for summer with our professional dental cleaning and exam. Dr. Danton Bradshaw has found that regular dental cleanings and exams are a fitting complement to daily at-home oral care when it comes to maintaining your healthy smile.

The Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) reports that patients who receive routine dental cleanings and exams every six months benefit from improved oral health. The AGD also reports that routine dental cleanings may help lower the risk for certain diseases, such as heart disease and stroke. In fact, life-threatening medical conditions, such as oral cancer, are often detected in their early stages during a routine dental exam. Just as vital, regular dental cleanings and exams help prevent gum disease, tooth decay and bad breath.

During your visit, our Snowy River Dental team will clean your teeth, perform an exam, and take X-rays. We will remove tartar above and below the gum line, polish your teeth and floss them, check for tooth decay and gum disease, make sure your bite is aligning properly, and evaluate your health for signs of tooth grinding which can cause tooth sensitivity.

Evaluating your oral health regularly is of great benefit to our patients, as it also allows us to detect and fix issues in the early stages when they are the easiest and least invasively treated. Please call us today at 208-788-2006 to schedule your dental cleaning and exam with Dr. Danton Bradshaw and our experienced team in Bellevue, Idaho, and be ready to sport a healthy, confident smile this summer!
