Dental Checkups & Cleanings – Lincoln, NE

How We Make Your Smile Shine

An essential part of daily oral hygiene is regularly brushing and flossing at home. Dr. Shirk recommends brushing at least twice a day, flossing at least once, and rinsing with a quality mouthwash. In addition to this, regular dental checkups and teeth cleanings in our Lincoln, NE dental office are also vital. That’s why our practice is proud to offer preventive checkups and cleanings for patients of all ages.

How Often Should You Get a Dental Checkup?

We recommend visiting our dental office twice a year for routine cleanings and exams. If that sounds like a lot, just consider how frequently you brush your teeth. Everything we eat and drink contributes to the buildup of bacteria and plaque on our teeth and gums. Both contribute to the development of common oral health problems like tooth decay and gum disease. Controlling their presence with regular checkups will help you enjoy a lifetime of quality oral and overall health.

What to Expect

During your next checkup, your hygienist will begin by asking if you’ve noticed any changes regarding your teeth and gums since your last visit. We may also take X-rays of your smile before beginning your cleaning. With the X-rays we collect, we can gain a deeper understanding of your needs, allowing us to provide more personalized care.

Every one of your checkups will also include a full oral exam by Dr. Shirk, Dr. Claire, or Dr. Chris. The purpose of these exams is to look for signs of decay, disease, teeth grinding, and even oral cancer. If we find anything during your exam, we will discuss your treatment solutions with you and answer any questions you might have.

Is it Time for Your Next Checkup?

If it’s been more than six months since your last cleaning and exam, we invite you to call our Lincoln dental office to schedule your next visit. Pioneer Greens Dentistry welcomes patients of all ages from in and around the Lincoln area. We look forward to serving you!
