Hygiene & Oral Screenings
The true secret to a patient keeping healthy and beautiful teeth, is coming to see us every six months, and doing their part to maintain general oral hygiene. Dr Boucek and Brawner offer a wide variety of services to patients throughout Memphis. However, many patients who have been with us for years know that these regular cleanings and screenings are all they need.
Routine Dental Cleanings Keep Your Smile Healthy
Our dental hygienist, along with Dr Boucek and Brawner, only need about 30 minutes every six months, and regular brushing and flossing on your part, to keep your teeth healthy. During these routine checkups, our dental hygienist will remove plaque from your teeth with our dental instruments. We will also use a fluoride polish to clean your teeth and help give them a whiter color. Brushing twice per day and flossing helps, but our comprehensive cleanings will help ensure maximum oral health.
After your cleaning, Dr Boucek or Dr Brawner will take a look for any abnormalities in you teeth and gums. They look for cavities forming, soft spots on the surfaces of teeth, discoloration, swelling, and a number of other signs that experienced dentists know can show early onset disease. If necessary, we may take an x ray to get a more detailed look of the oral cavity. If we find anything abnormal, Dr Boucek or Dr Brawner will discuss multiple treatment options with you, but for patients who come in regularly, treatment can be minimal. Periodontics is very important for no only your mouth, but your overall health.
