We recommend you schedule a dental exam every 6 months so we can monitor your oral health.
During your appointment, we’ll be able to discover gum and teeth problems before they threaten your health.
Unlike other dentists, we provide comprehensive dental care by seeing how soft tissues and muscles affect your oral health. For example, during your appointment, we’ll examine your bite to make sure your teeth fit together and that there are no uneven wear patterns.
Why Oral Examinations are Important:
Dentistry for Children
Tooth decay is the most common chronic childhood disease in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Fortunately, our dentists have plenty of experience helping children understand how to take care of their smiles. We take pride in helping children develop good oral hygiene habits that will last a lifetime.
During your child’s appointment, we will examine the inside of their mouth and remove plaque and tartar buildup. Plaque is an invisible film of bacteria that increases your child’s risk for cavities. Once plaque hardens into tartar, it can only be removed by a dental professional.
Comprehensive Dental Care
In addition to checking for gum disease, your dentist may also do an oral cancer screening or check for TMJ disorder. People with TMJ disorder tend to experience migraines, jaw pain, sensitive teeth, and worn tooth enamel. Our dentists take a comprehensive approach to preventive dentistry so you can avoid larger health complications.
