Welcome to Tolland Hill Family Dental, your local experts in dental cleanings and checkups, serving the communities of Tolland, Willington, and Ellington. Regular dental checkups and cleanings should be completed every six months for most patients. These visits are crucial for maintaining not just your oral health but also your overall well-being.

Why Regular Dental Cleanings & Checkups are Essential

Preventative Care: Regular cleanings and checkups are the best way to prevent dental problems before they start. They are key in maintaining good oral hygiene and preventing issues like tooth decay and gum disease.

  • Early Detection: Routine visits allow for early detection of potential oral health issues. This early intervention can save time, money, and discomfort in the long run.
  • Oral Cancer Screening: Each checkup includes an oral cancer screening, a vital process in detecting any signs of cancer at an early, more treatable stage.

What Happens During Your Dental Checkup

A comprehensive dental checkup at Tolland Hill Family Dental includes several key components:

  • Teeth Cleaning: Our dental hygienists gently remove plaque and tartar that regular brushing and flossing might miss, leaving your teeth clean and your breath fresh.
  • Gum Charting: We assess the health of your gums, checking for any signs of gum disease, which is critical in maintaining both dental and overall health.
  • Oral Cancer Screening: We conduct a thorough examination of your mouth, throat, neck, and face to detect any signs of oral cancer.
  • Dental X-rays: X-rays help in detecting problems that are not visible during a regular exam, such as issues below the gum line, hidden cavities, and the health of your jawbone.
  • Examination by the Dentist: Our dentist will examine your teeth, gums, and mouth, discuss any concerns you may have, and provide recommendations for your oral health care.

Reasons Not to Skip Your Routine Dental Cleaning

Skipping dental cleanings and checkups can lead to several issues:

  • Progression of Oral Diseases: Without regular checkups, conditions like gum disease and tooth decay can progress unnoticed.
  • Higher Costs in the Long Run: Neglecting routine care can lead to the need for more complex and costly treatments later.
  • Missed Oral Cancer Detection: Regular screenings are crucial for early detection of oral cancer, which can be life-saving.
  • Overall Health Risks: Poor oral health has been linked to other health issues, including heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.

What Our Patients Say

Never had I had so much attention paid to my whole mouth health. Performed mouth cancer checks and measured gum gaps (didn't know this was a thing). A lot of time with doctor, not just the hygienist. Explained everything they were doing and why.
Daniel Keener
The team at this office was very kind, understanding, patient and persistent in working with my child. She is highly anxious at the dentist and they took their time to help her through the experience. Would highly recommend them to others!
