Planning a visit to the Centennial dentist every six months is highly recommended! During these routine visits a dental hygienist will perform a dental cleaning, take x-rays and the dentist will have a look in your mouth to make sure everything looks good. People who practice good oral health hygiene at home will typically not have any discomfort during a routine Centennial dental visit. However, those who do not practice good oral hygiene may experience some sensitivity during these visits. In this case, the dentist can provide a topical anesthetic before the cleaning to help relieve any discomfort the client may experience.
