Check-ups & Cleanings
Maintaining good oral health over the years is not only important for your smile, but also for your quality of life. After all, healthy teeth help you to feel and look good, not to mention how much functions like speaking and eating depend on them. At Combs & Associates Family Dentistry, our team would love to be your trusted partners in oral health care. Dr. Chris Combs strongly recommends that patients of all ages attend at least two evaluations and two hygiene appointments a year so we can better protect smiles and prevent problems at their onset. Patients from Bella Vista, Pea Ridge, and beyond are welcome!
Refreshing Oral Hygiene
We also recommend that children and adults alike undergo a refreshing cleaning/prophy with one of our hygienists after their check-ups. This allows our Pea Ridge and Bella Vista, AR team to remove any stubborn plaque and tartar from teeth and thoroughly clean the gums as well, leaving your whole mouth feeling nicely polished.
Before we begin any treatment, our team needs to understand the unique state of your smile. During a check-up, either Dr. Combs and our team members closely inspect the surfaces of each individual tooth, gums, bite, and other important areas. Digital X-rays allow us to view what’s out of sight, and a perio chart and oral cancer screening gives us even more valuable information. Additionally, we’d like to discuss you and your approach to dental care (what your past experiences have been like, if you have any concerns or fears regarding our service, etc). Once we’ve formed a complete picture of your unique situation, we develop a personalized treatment plan that fits your needs.
