Welcome to Diamond Dental in Beachwood, where we believe that preventative dental care is the foundation of a healthy smile. Our experienced team, led by Dr. Diamond, is committed to helping patients in Beachwood, Solon, Pepper Pike, University Heights, Shaker, and beyond achieve and maintain optimal oral health through regular dental cleanings and checkups.
Why is preventative care important?
Preventative care is important because it helps catch dental problems early, before they have a chance to develop into more serious and costly issues. Regular teeth cleanings and checkups are an essential part of preventative care because they allow us to remove plaque, tartar, and other harmful bacteria from your teeth and gums. These harmful bacteria can lead to tooth decay, gum disease, and other serious oral health issues if left untreated.
What is a dental cleaning?
A dental cleaning, also known as prophylaxis, is a procedure that removes plaque, tartar, and other harmful bacteria from your teeth and gums. During a cleaning, our skilled hygienists use specialized tools to gently and thoroughly clean your teeth, including those hard-to-reach areas that may be missed during your daily brushing and flossing routine.
What happens during a dental checkup?
During a dental checkup at Diamond Dental, we'll thoroughly examine your teeth, gums, and mouth for any signs of oral health issues. This includes a visual inspection, as well as X-rays to check for cavities, bone loss, and other issues that may not be visible to the naked eye. We'll also discuss your oral health habits and provide tips for improving your brushing, flossing, and overall dental care routine.
How often should I get a dental cleaning?
We recommend that our patients visit us for a dental cleaning and checkup at least twice a year. However, the frequency of your visits may vary depending on your individual oral health needs. During your visit, we'll work with you to develop a personalized dental care plan that's tailored to your specific needs.
