Brushing and flossing go a long way to preventing oral issues, but everyone needs a general dentist to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Nashville, TN, dentists, Dr. Nabors and Dr. Clegg, can provide you with all of the tools you need to make sure that you can always depend on your oral health. We offer a variety of general dentistry services that help you maintain the longevity of your smile.
Our mouths contain billions of bacteria. Some of these bacteria are responsible for the buildup of plaque on our teeth. Because of this, you must constantly clean your teeth to prevent developing cavities.
In addition to cleaning your teeth, it’s also vital that you come to our office twice every year for a professional teeth cleaning. During this teeth cleaning, we use the latest tools in dentistry to make sure that your teeth are clean and remain healthy.
What Can You Expect During a Professional Cleaning?
When you come into our office you will be warmly greeted by our staff. Our dental hygienist will take you back to our dental chair and help you relax.
