Dental Cleanings and Regular Checkups in Kennewick, WA

Regular dental checkups at Mid-Columbia Dental are an important part of maintaining your oral health. During your regular checkup, your hygienist will:

  • Check for any problems that you may not see or feel
  • Look for cavities or any other signs of tooth decay
  • Inspect your teeth and gums for gingivitis and signs of periodontal disease
  • Provide a thorough teeth cleaning, rinse, and polish

Visiting Dr. McNamara every six months gives you the chance to talk with him and receive answers for any questions you may have about your oral health. Checkups are also a great way for you to find out about new treatments that may benefit your smile.

Choosing the Right Toothpaste and Toothbrush

From toothpaste and mouthwash to toothbrushes and dental floss, it's important to choose the right products to meet your oral health goals. Keep in mind that when you're looking for a new toothpaste or toothbrush, choose one that has been approved by the American Dental Association (ADA). Dr. McNamara or your hygienist can also help by recommending certain dental products for use at home.
