It is important to pair good brushing and flossing habits with regular dental cleanings and checkups. Drs. David, Samuel, and Augustine Borgmeyer recommend that you come in for a teeth cleaning in St. Louis, Missouri, at least once every six months. This appointment includes a dental cleaning, fluoride treatment, a dental exam, and X-rays.
Our hygienist will clean the plaque and tartar from all of your teeth with a small metal tool. After this, the hygienist will floss your teeth, polish them, and apply fluoride. Fluoride is a mineral that strengthens your teeth against decay. Our dentists will examine all of your teeth and gums for signs of decay, gum disease, and other oral health issues. Sometimes, our dentists will decide to take X-rays to get a closer look at your teeth and examine hard-to-reach areas. If any decay or other dental problems are located, Drs. David, Samuel, and Augustine Borgmeyer will go over them with you and form a treatment plan. We will make sure that you understand your treatment options so that you can make an informed decision about your dental care.
