Twice-a-year cleanings and examinations are essential for optimal oral hygiene. These regular visits allow Dr. Blaine McLaughlin and Dr. Meghan Nelson to thoroughly clean your teeth, removing plaque and tartar even from those hard-to-reach surfaces. What’s more, routine dental visits allow both doctors to detect small issues such as minor decay or the beginning signs of gum disease and provide swift and effective treatment before serious problems arise.
If you live in Cedar Rapids, Marion, or surrounding Iowa communities and are looking for an experienced dentist, please contact Dental Touch Associates online or by calling 319-373-5082 to schedule an appointment with Dr. McLaughlin or Dr. Nelson.
Routine dental care visits may include:
- Professional tooth and gum cleaning
- Fluoride treatments
- TMJ evaluation
- Digital X-rays
X-rays are typically only necessary once a year, but certain problems may require more. Because we value your safety we use only the most advanced x-ray techniques. This allows us to reduce your exposure to potentially harmful radiation.
Dr. McLaughlin and Dr. Nelson are dedicated family dentists who provide these services to children, teenagers, adults, and seniors alike. No matter what your age, visiting the dentist regularly is one of the most effective ways to protect your teeth. And it will help preserve your smile for years to come.
Your role in maintaining good dental health includes regular dental appointments and taking care of your teeth at home. This should include brushing after every meal, flossing once or twice a day, and reducing your intake of sugary and acidic foods and beverages. These steps will help prevent damage to tooth enamel and keep gums free of disease in between visits, allowing your examinations to be more about maintenance than repair.
Call or contact us to schedule your appointment with Dr. McLaughlin and Dr. Nelson. We serve the Cedar Rapids-Marion area and surrounding towns.
