At Landmark Smiles of Scottsdale, we understand that every individual has different needs. This is why we encourage our patients to talk with us during their examination regarding their dental care and are committed to educating our patients about each and every aspect of their dental health and treatment. Cleaning (called prophylaxis) and prevention are an important component to having a happy, healthy smile.   All cleaning appointments begin with perio charting, a consultation with our hygienist and evaluation of your general oral dentition.  Cancer screening is generally done at these appointments and bite-wing xrays are taken for detecting decay that may not be immediately visible.  (We use digital x-rays which you will be able to view via the computer screen on the dental chair.)   Following your dental cleaning, your Dentist will do a comprehensive exam and discuss treatment needed as well as any preventative recommendations.  Landmark Smiles sincerely believes that every smile requires individualized attention and instructions and are committed to providing informed solutions for their patients.

Brushing and flossing daily are two common dental care regimens that everyone should follow. But the “tools” you use to care for your teeth can vary depending on your needs. For example, individuals with highly sensitive teeth will benefit from heavily concentrated fluoride toothpaste such as PreviDent and Brite Smiles, while those with abrasion issues due to certain toothbrushes may want to try a special toothbrush such as  Rotadent. Individuals who have struggled with bad breath may benefit from antimicrobial agents such as BreathRx, and those who are recovering from periodontal disease may find special toothbrushes like the Sonicare are easier and gentler on their healing gums.

When a patient gets a full examination, they will also receive recommendations as to what they should use in their oral care regimen in order to keep their mouth healthy and clear of bacteria. Your medical history and dental concerns will be discussed in order to determine the best toothbrush, toothpaste, and oral products to help you follow an effective dental care regimen.  REMEMBER:   ORAL HEALTH IS THE PRIMARY KEY TO OVERALL HEALTH.   TAKING CARE OF YOUR TEETH IS PRIMARY TO TAKING CARE OF YOUR ENTIRE BODY!

If you have questions or concerns about your own dental care, schedule a consultation appointment with Landmark Smiles to find out if you are using the right tools for your smile. A happy, healthy smile will help you maintain optimal health, feel better about yourself and be more confident in all aspects of your life!
