Healthy Teeth Start With Routine Dental Cleanings

Routine Dental Care in Anchorage for the Whole Family

Regular dental cleanings and checkups in our Anchorage office are your frontline defense against cavities, gum disease, and tooth infection. Routine dental appointments help remove tartar build-up. Most importantly, your checkup is when our dentists examine your oral health and identify potential dental problems before they become more severe.

Dr. Broc Brimhall discusses routine dental care

What To Expect During Your Dental Checkup

Generally, it’s recommended that both children and adults get their teeth cleaned and examined every six months. Here is what a dental cleaning and exam looks like at our office:

  1. A dental hygienist will take you back to one of our dental massage chairs (yes you read that right!).
  2. The hygienist will remove plaque and tartar from your teeth through a deep cleaning process called scaling and root planing.
  3. We’ll polish you’re the surface of your teeth to make it smoother and more resistant to future plaque build-up.
  4. Your dentist comes in to examine your teeth and gums and address any questions or concerns you might have.
