One of the most common, and important, services we offer at Blissful Dental is a dental exam and cleaning. Dr. Howard recommends that you visit our office at least once every six months for this routine exam and cleaning. One of the most important reasons for this cleaning and exam is to ensure that your gums and teeth remain healthy. During this examination and cleaning, we will:

• Remove any tartar, which is hardened plaque that can only be removed by dental instruments.
• Remove any plaque, which is a sticky layer where bacteria multiplies
• Polish your smile
• Examine your mouth for signs of gum disease, oral cancer, and other complications

Another reason we recommend frequent visits with us is that the harmful plaque and tartar that cause gum disease should be removed often, and cannot be removed by just brushing and flossing. Depending on your individual needs and the results of your examination, our dentists may recommend more frequent visits. If you have any questions about the benefits of having a teeth cleaning in Lanham, Maryland, we invite you to contact us today. We are determined to help you have and maintain the smile you have always wanted. Our team looks forward to hearing from you soon!
