If you wish to have a strong and healthy oral cavity, we strongly recommend coming into the dental practice of David J. Harsant, DDS, PA every six months for a dental exam and dental cleaning in Fayetteville, North Carolina.
When you first come into our office, we will guide you back into a comfortable, relaxing, and peaceful treatment room. When you are ready, our dentist or hygienist will begin the cleaning by scraping the surfaces of your teeth to remove the plaque that resides there. This is a very important technique that eliminates the risks associated with gum disease and periodontal disease, which is one of the main reasons why we strongly recommend these appointments. We will then wash, rinse, floss, and polish your teeth. This is a great way to deeply clean the hard-to-reach areas in your mouth and destroy any bacteria and infection. To finish the cleaning, we will give you a fluoride treatment, which will be flavored and will also be in the form of a foam, gel, or varnish. We will place the fluoride in your mouth and ask you to wait for a few minutes. While you wait, the fluoride minerals will soak into your teeth and will nourish and strengthen them. When the time is up, we will rinse your mouth with cool, refreshing water.
Your dentist will then come into the room and closely examine your entire oral cavity with special dental tools. Dental x-rays will also be taken to allow your dentist to examine your teeth, roots, and underlying bone. This is a great way to identify and diagnose any dental issues you have.
