Don’t Brush Off Getting a Great Smile!

The top two reasons adults lose teeth are cavities and gum disease. Even the best daily brushing and flossing won’t get rid of every bit of plaque between teeth and below the gum line. When the plaque hardens, it turns into tartar, which is difficult to remove without professional care. Professional cleanings get rid of tartar above and below the gum line, keeping your teeth and gums on track to stay healthy. 


Dental Checkups with Great Northern Dental Care includes a review of your dental and medical history, concerns you may have, complete x-rays, a gentle, yet thorough cleaning, and an oral exam to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy. During your exam we will also check your blood pressure, assess your temporomandibular joint function (TMJ), and screen for oral cancers and airway issues.
