Routine cleanings are an important part of maintaining your oral health. Brushing three times a day and flossing daily will go a long way towards preserving a healthy mouth, but it is wise to check for plaque that has hardened into tartar, which will require a professional cleaning to avoid gingivitis or more severe problems. Our dentists recommend visiting Westwood Dental for a professional cleaning and checkup every six months. During your checkup with our dentists, your teeth will be cleaned and polished, X-rays taken will be taken, and your mouth will be examined for any signs of oral cancers and other dental problems.

Digital X-Rays
The X-rays that we use at Westwood Dental utilize advanced digital technology to provide images of your teeth with even more accuracy. This helps Dr. Shelly Galvin and Dr. Kritika Thomas to tailor their dental care to you specifically. Additionally, digital X-rays use far less radiation than traditional methods, providing you the safest care possible.

Patient Education
During our cleanings and examinations, we may detect an issue that needs extra care. If you require any additional dental treatments, our dentists will explain the procedures to you before moving forward. This lets you make the best decisions for your smile.
