At the office of Dr. Carl M. Hillendahl, we place an emphasis on prevention and early intervention to keep your family’s smiles healthy and beautiful. We recommend visiting our office twice a year for your Placerville teeth cleaning, examination, oral cancer screening and treatments designed to help protect the health of your smile. We’ll personalize our preventive program to meet the individual needs of each member of your family, keeping you informed and at ease throughout your checkup.
Preventing tooth decay, gum disease and other oral health problems requires a daily home care routine that includes brushing, flossing and making the right lifestyle and nutritional choices. These steps help protect your teeth against the detrimental effects of plaque, which is a sticky film that harbors the harmful bacteria responsible for both tooth decay and gum disease. While brushing and flossing are of the utmost importance, it’s also essential to receive routine professional care. With biannual checkup visits and a professional Placerville teeth cleaning, our office can help patients maintain optimal oral health.
At every checkup visit, our dentist performs a comprehensive examination, using advanced digital radiography, as needed. Periodic examinations allow for the earliest possible detection and intervention of conditions that may adversely affect your oral health. We also provide a cleaning to thoroughly remove and residual plaque from the difficult to reach areas between your teeth and gums as well as offer guidance as to how you can clean and care for your teeth most effectively between visits. For our youngest patients, we offer an added layer of protection against tooth decay with dental sealants and fluoride treatments, as well as the educational tools your child needs to establish a lifetime of cavity-free smiles.
Maintaining the healthy, beautiful smile is easy when you visit our office for your biannual Placerville teeth cleaning and exam. At the office of Dr. Carl M. Hillendahl, we make checkups informative and engaging for you and your loved ones. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, call today.
