General Dentistry for the whole family!
General dentistry services in Deerfield Beach FL are so important – for patients of all ages. From tooth cleaning to examinations, general dentistry is often preventative, to help patients maintain clean, healthy, white teeth. At Maureen O’Flanagan DDS, we provide expert general dentistry services.
General Dentistry Services Offered
We recommend patients come to our offices every six months for standard tooth cleanings and examinations. We’ll keep track of your dental record and perform services as needed, and when you come in, we’ll let you know which services are due. Below are some general dentistry services we provide.
Teeth cleanings are one of the most important dental services that you’ll ever receive. Teeth cleanings protect the health of your teeth by removing plaque and tartar, thus protecting your teeth from the acids and bacteria that can cause tooth decay. Dental cleanings also help to remove stains that can affect the aesthetic appearance of your teeth over time.
Dental x-rays are a safe and effective way to see what’s happening in the parts of your teeth that aren’t visible to the naked eye. X-rays help us determine when you’re having problems like cavities, wisdom teeth growth, infection and more.
Dental x-rays aren’t necessary with every visit to our dental office, but every patient has different needs. Some patients need x-rays more often than others. We’ll let you know when you’re in need of x-rays.
Fluoride is a mineral that strengthens your teeth and helps prevent dental decay. Like dental x-rays, fluoride treatments may not be necessary with every visit to the office. We’ll track your fluoride treatments and let you know when its time for your next round of fluoride.
Dental examinations help us identify problems that your teeth may be experiencing. Sometimes dental problems aren’t obvious in their earliest stages. Even if your teeth feel fine and look fine, they may not be! That’s why it’s important to come in for regular dental examinations.
During the dental exam, we’ll look for problems like gum disease, cracked tooth enamel, loose teeth, plaque, tartar and more. During your dental exam, we’ll also look for signs that your oral hygiene routine needs a change. We can walk you through tooth brushing best practices and show you how to floss your teeth properly. Dental exams are also a great time to ask the questions you might have about your dental hygiene routine!
