Check-ups & Hygiene

Diligent brushing and flossing is crucial for maintaining a healthy, happy smile – but it’s not all that you need. After all, tricky problems can develop that are difficult for an untrained eye to notice, leading to damage and decay. That’s why Lakeland Family Dental strongly recommends that patients of all ages attend an in-depth check-up and cleaning at least once every six months, or twice a year. This allows Dr. Eric Ruiz, Dr. Samantha Ruiz, and the rest of our team to learn everything we need to know about your unique smile, recommend treatment options if necessary, and give it a nice, fresh shine here in Oconomowoc, WI.

What to Expect During Your Check-Up

During your evaluation, our team will be as thorough and gentle as possible so that we can create a complete picture of your current oral health. We will closely inspect the surface of each individual tooth, take a look at your soft tissue, conduct an oral cancer screening, inspect your bite and TMJ, and take any necessary X-rays. If we do finds signs of problems, we can work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses your needs and fits your schedule and budget.

What to Expect During Your Cleaning

Over time, soft and hard deposits of plaque and tartar form over teeth and increase your risk of cavities, even when patients practice diligent homecare. Your regular cleaning allows our team to remove them and protect your smile from the threat of decay. We can also work with you to improve the oral hygiene techniques you use at home, if there’s room to improve.

You and your loved ones deserve true excellence when it comes to oral healthcare, and here at Lakeland Family Dental, we’d enjoy nothing more than getting to exceed your expectations.
