Our team is devoted to helping you achieve and maintain your ideal, healthy smile. To help us achieve this goal, it is important that you visit our team at Lakeland Dental Care at least once every six months for cleanings and exams, in addition to your routine of daily flossing, brushing and maintaining a proper diet. Our professionally trained dental hygienists will thoroughly clean and care for your teeth in a way that you cannot do at home. Exams give our team a chance to evaluate your oral health and help prevent any serious dental problems.

During the regular cleanings, you can expect to receive:

  • Scaling
  • Root Planing
  • Polishing
  • Periodontal evaluation for gum disease
  • Oral cancer exam
  • Diet counseling, if needed
  • Home care instructions
  • Dental X-rays, if needed
  • Evaluation by Dr. Abernathy and the hygienist

Regular checkups and professional cleanings are very important for maintaining your optimal oral health. Here, we work hard to prevent the dental problems that can be avoided with proper attention, including cavities, infections and diseases.
