Protecting one of your most valuable assets, your smile, starts with visiting your dentist for regular check-ups. Regular dental check-ups including complete examinations, teeth cleanings and X-rays will help in the early detection of problems such as cavities and gum disease, and minimize more costly treatments later on.
During your first visit, we will conduct a thorough examination of your mouth, including your teeth, gums and other soft tissue. We also check for early signs of periodontal disease, cavities, oral cancer and other potentially serious problems. The exam may include necessary x-rays to accurately determine the condition of your oral health. Following a careful diagnosis, we will discuss a treatment plan that is suitable to you. When treatment is indicated, we will try to restore optimum dental health in a few well-planned appointments. The first visit also includes a thorough teeth cleaning.
We encourage all patients to schedule regular dental check-ups and cleanings every six months unless more frequent visits are recommended. Early detection is essential to the successful treatment of any dental condition.
