Preventive dental care is important throughout your life, no matter your age. By practicing good oral hygiene at home and scheduling regular checkups with your dentist, you can help keep your smile bright and healthy for many years to come. 

Regular Exams and Cleanings

Regular exams are an important part of maintaining your oral health. During your regular exam, we will:

  • Check for any problems that you may not see or feel
  • Look for cavities or any other signs of tooth decay
  • Inspect your teeth and gums for gingivitis and signs of periodontal disease
  • Perform a thorough teeth cleaning

Your regular exam will take about 45 minutes. Each regular exam includes a detailed teeth cleaning, in which we will clean, polish, and rinse your teeth to remove any tartar and plaque that have built up on the tooth's surface.

Visiting our office every six months gives you the chance to talk to the doctor about any questions you may have about your oral health. Regular exams are offered by appointment only, so please contact our practice today to schedule your next dental exam and teeth cleaning.

Oral Cancer Screenings

Did you know that more than 40,000 Americans are diagnosed with cancer of the mouth and throat every year? Unfortunately, many people are not diagnosed until the condition has reached the later stages. However, when detected early, oral cancer can be treated. That’s why our dentists always perform a detailed visual exam of your gums, tongue, lips, cheek, throat and neck for any signs of tissue that is either cancerous or precancerous. In the event we find anything concerning, we’ll let you know what steps to take to improve your chances of a successful recovery.
