At Truman Village Family Dental in Independence, Missouri, Dr. Mark Jensen and our team are excited to boost your smile this summer with a professional dental exam and cleaning. According to the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), patients who receive routine dental checkups every six months benefit from improved oral health. We have found our dental exams and cleanings to be the perfect complement to your daily at-home oral care when it comes to maintaining your oral health.
The AGD also says that routine dental exams and 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. Routine dental exams and cleanings also help to prevent gum disease, tooth decay and bad breath.
During your checkup, our experienced team will clean your teeth, perform an exam, and possibly take X-rays. We will remove tartar above and below the gum line, polish your teeth and floss them. We will also check for signs of tooth decay and gum disease, make sure your bite is aligning properly, check for signs of tooth grinding, tmj and oral cancer. Having your teeth checked regularly also allow us to detect and fix issues in the early stages when they are the easiest and least invasively treated.
So if you are ready to rock your summer with a healthy, confident smile, call us today at 816-569-9800 to schedule your dental cleaning and exam with Dr. Mark Jensen and our caring team in Independence, Missouri!
