Dental Cleaning and Examinations

Good oral health is important regardless of how old you are.  At Chapman Family Dentistry, we believe that preventative care is essential for having good oral health.  Our goal is to keep our patients as healthy as possible, and the best way to do so is regular visits to see your dentist and understanding the importance of regular home care to improve your oral health.  We recommend that adults have their teeth cleaned a minimum of twice a year.  As teeth age, they are susceptible to breakage.  Brushing and flossing is important, along with visiting your dentist every six months.  We offer flexible appointment times so that you can schedule an appointment around your work or family schedule, making it easier than ever to get your teeth cleaned.

Dr. Chapman works with patients of all ages and knows how to help children to feel comfortable while visiting the dentist.  We recommend that children receive their first dental exam at a very young age (usually 3-4); ensuring that baby teeth are properly cleaned and stay healthy until permanent teeth replace them.  Children can get cavities just like adults and leading by example is important for children.  While cleaning children's teeth, our staff has been trained to take it slowly and educate our children in good oral health and the importance of brushing and flossing.  By building rapport with our young patients, they will feel more relaxed during their dental appointments and visiting the dentist becomes fun instead of intimidating.
