Taking care of your teeth at home is an essential part of maintaining optimal oral hygiene, but alone is not enough to prevent issues such as tooth decay and gum disease. Brush after every meal and snack, and floss at least once a day. This is necessary for the removal plaque and food particles from on, and in between, teeth. These at-home steps can also help prevent tooth and periodontal infection, but unless they are complimented by regular visits to Clovis dentist Dr. Gregory Miyake, they may fail to keep your teeth and gums at peak health.

Professional Cleanings

Professional cleanings and examinations are a necessary part of your oral hygiene routine. You should plan on visiting our Fresno office every six months for the complete removal or plaque and tartar and a thorough examination of your teeth, gums, and jaw. These examinations allow Dr. Miyake to detect small issues such as tooth decay and gingivitis, treating them before they become serious problems. This can help prevent more invasive treatments such as dental fillings and root canal, while also keeping your teeth their brightest year round.

If you live in Clovis or surrounding areas of California, please contact Gregory G. Miyake, D.D.S. or call 559-224-0103 today to schedule your next dental cleaning and examination.
