Dr. Milla Openko and our team recommend that you visit us for a dental cleaning in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, at least twice a year. Even if you brush and floss perfectly, professional cleanings are needed so that tartar buildup can be removed and so that our dentist can detect any dental issues early on. We have found that our patients feel more at ease if they know what to expect when they visit Milla Openko, DMD. Because of this, we are more than happy to tell you about dental cleanings and exams.
Our dentist or hygienist will scrape built-up plaque and tartar from your teeth and from below the gum line. This can help prevent gum disease, tooth decay, bad breath, and other issues. They will then polish and floss each tooth.
Dr. Milla Openko will then examine each of your teeth and your gums and mouth closed, looking for signs of gum disease, decay, and other issues. Our dentist’s goal is to help you improve and maintain your oral health. This includes detecting and treating any dental issues as soon as possible.
Our dentist may recommend that you have dental X-rays taken. These X-rays can detect issues that may have otherwise been unspotted. Early diagnosis of these issues is ideal, as this allows our dentist to treat them while the issues are still minor.
We welcome you to contact our dental office at 412.885.5590 today to learn more and to schedule your next visit.
