What is a teeth cleaning?

Teeth cleanings are an essential step in keeping your smile healthy. A teeth cleaning in Logan, Utah involves two main parts: cleaning and polishing. Our gentle dentist and dental hygienists will remove any plaque or tartar (hardened plaque) from your teeth that you might have missed during your normal flossing and brushing. We will then polish your teeth, giving you a shiny, healthy smile.

What are dental X-rays?

Dental X-rays are a diagnostic tool that helps Dr. Brandon Schvaneveldt detect and diagnose dental problems that might otherwise go undetected. At Ridge View Smile Care, we utilize digital X-rays, which use significantly less radiation than conventional film X-rays. The process for taking digital dental X-rays is fast and comfortable. Using dental X-rays, we can identify dental conditions such as tooth decay, infection in the tooth nerve, bone loss, and more.

How often should I go to the dentist?

We recommend that you visit our dental office every six months for a routine teeth cleaning and X-rays. This ensures that we keep your smile healthy and that we treat any problematic dental conditions as early as possible.
