While brushing and flossing your teeth is very important to your dental health, it is also imperative that you visit your dentist regularly. Dr. Kinra, Dr. Kinra, and our team recommend that you and your child come in for a professional dental cleaning in Jackson and Saline, Michigan, at least once every six months. These visits allow our hygienist to thoroughly clean your teeth and for our dentists to examine your teeth and gums for any problems or potential problems. Because of this, dental issues can be treated while they are still minor. Other dental problems can be avoided altogether.

Dental Cleaning
When you visit Great Lakes Family Dental, your visit will begin with a thorough cleaning. Our hygienist will remove the plaque from all surfaces of the teeth. Your teeth will also be polished. Dental fluoride may be applied to the teeth to strengthen the enamel against decay.

Dental Exam
Our dentists will examine all of your teeth and your gums for signs of inflammation, decay, or other dental issues. X-rays may be taken to get a closer, more precise look at the teeth and the surrounding bone. An oral cancer exam will also be performed. This is important so that any cancerous tissues can be detected early, when they are easier to treat.

Our dentists will discuss any issues that were detected with you. A treatment plan will be suggested and explained. Drs. Kinra and Kinra will answer any questions that you may have. Of course, you have the final say about your oral health. Sometimes, our dentists or hygienist will educate you or your child about proper tooth brushing and flossing.
