Regular dental checkups and cleanings are recommended by the American Dental Association to maintain optimal oral health and detect gum and dental disease early. The ADA recommends regular dental visits every three to 12 months. A dental checkup will include reviewing and updating your medical history, screening for oral cancer, evaluating your gum tissue and performing an examination to detect decay.
Our preventative services include regular cleanings, exams, digital x-rays which effectively reduce radiation by 80%, and an emphasis on patient education. Laser bacterial reduction techniques can be used to reduce bacterial populations under your gums by 80-90% for a healthier mouth.
