Best Dental Preventive Checkup | Joplin MO

“Dental problems usually start small and continue to get worse as time goes by, like a pothole in the road or a crack in a windshield.”

Preventive Checkup

At Joplin Family Dental, our team is dedicated to providing a strong foundation for great oral hygiene and health. It is recommended that you brush your teeth at least twice a day (four minutes each time) and floss once a day. You are an important piece of the puzzle to successful dental health. 

A professional examination and teeth cleaning by a Registered Dental Hygienist is recommended for most people every six months. This professional cleaning will supplement the oral hygiene you maintain at home and will help protect your teeth from decay and prevent cavities. Diagnostic x-rays allow us to see beginning decay between the teeth and at the gumline.

A Preventive Care appointment includes more than a professional cleaning. Our Hygienists will also do a cancer screening and update your medical history. Preventive care and professional teeth cleaning appointments allow us to treat many dental problems early before they become more serious.
