Gerald V. Hansen, DDS, recommends that you and your family come in for a teeth cleaning in Reno, Nevada, at least once every six months. This appointment includes a professional dental cleaning, a dental exam, and X-rays. To start off the appointment, our hygienist will clean your teeth of tartar and plaque with a metal tool. Our hygienist will then floss your teeth, polish them, and may also apply fluoride. Fluoride is a mineral that helps fight cavities by strengthening your tooth enamel. Dr. Gerald Hansen will then perform the dental exam. Our dentist will examine your gums and teeth all the way around for signs of decay, gum disease, and other oral health problems. Our dentist may decide to take X-rays of your smile to get a closer, more thorough look at your teeth. This will help him to locate and diagnose dental issues that are hard to spot with the naked eye.
Please contact Hansen Cosmetic Family Dentistry as soon as possible if you experience dental pain or any type of dental emergency. Please contact our dental office today to learn more and to schedule your next visit with our dentist. We are excited to provide dental care for you and your family!
