At Baxter Dental in Baxter, Minnesota, our experienced team is excited to get your smile ready for summer with a professional dental cleaning and exam. Our skilled dentists, Dr. Timmons and Dr. Carlson have found that regular dental cleanings and exams are a fitting complement to daily at-home oral care when it comes to maintaining our patients’ healthy smiles.

The Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) reports that patients who receive routine dental cleanings and exams every six months benefit from improved oral health. Not only do these visits help prevent gum disease, tooth decay and bad breath, but routine dental cleanings and exams can help lower your risk for certain diseases, such as heart disease and stroke. In fact, life-threatening medical conditions, such as oral cancer, are often detected in their early stages during a routine dental exam.

During your cleaning visit, our Baxter Dental team will clean your teeth, perform an exam, and take X-rays. We will remove tartar above and below the gum line, polish your teeth and floss them, check for tooth decay and gum disease, make sure your bite is aligning properly, and evaluate your health for signs of tooth grinding (bruxism).

Are you seeking a smile boost this summer? If so, please call us today at 218-829-4207 to schedule a dental cleaning and exam. Dr. Timmons and Dr. Carlson will help you sport your most vibrant smile yet!
