A biannual checkup allows your dentist to provide any dental services and monitor your oral health, keeping your smile healthy and stop any possible infections. Be sure to visit the dentist twice a year. This is key along with your daily regimen of brushing and flossing daily to help prevent dental damage. Drs. Keith Huff and our dental team want to help you maintain a healthy smile with a professional exam and cleaning.

Your chances at fighting off plaque buildup, cavities, and other dental dangers increase greatly when you attend yearly appointments. This dental examination includes a look for any sign of dental diseases as well as signs of oral cancer or other complications.

Our hygienists will do extensive cleaning to remove tartar (aka dental calculus), plaque, and other deterrents that can lead to decay, cavities, or periodontal (gum) disease. A professional fluoride treatment, flossing and polishing of your teeth will be done as well. X-rays are used to examine your teeth’s insides to check for healthy pulp and roots.

If there are any signs of dental problems, you may need to visit the dentist more than twice a year. Getting biannual exams and cleanings can detect problems early. Give your smile a chance to be strong and healthy for a long time by calling South Coast Family Dentistry at 541-269-5353. At our dental exam in our office in Coos Bay, Oregon, our team will give you the care you need and want for your smile!
