Is it time for your six-month dental checkup? If so, our David J. Harsant, DDS, PA dental team is so happy to clean your smile and inspect your teeth and gums so you can uphold the strong and effective oral health you need. To help you get ready for your appointment, we’d like to explain the steps involved.

First, a member of our team will take X-Rays so that Dr. David J. Harsant can examine them and assess the health and strength of your teeth and gums. We will also inspect your mouth for signs of oral cancer.

Your dental cleaning will be simple and relatively painless, though it might involve a little pressure. Your hygienist will remove the plaque and tartar from your smile with special tools and techniques. This is extremely valuable because it helps you thwart gum disease. Then we will inspect the gum line for any dental issues. Next, we will floss between your teeth and eliminate what lives there. Finally, we’ll polish your teeth to remove the surface stains on your smile.

To conclude your appointment, your dentist will tell you about any problem areas he may have seen on your X-rays and do one last check of your mouth, and then will provide the essential tips or clarify your treatment options for mending your smile.

If you have any questions about your six-month check-ups in Fayetteville, North Carolina, you can always call our office at 910.864.4646. We are excited to hear from you and help you!
