Preventive Care

Dental Cleanings, Exams and X-Rays

Checkups are recommended every 6 months for a healthy mouth, and every 3-4 months for those with periodontal disease. Examinations should occur at least once a year, depending on your past history of cavities. X-rays should be taken between every 6 months to 3 years depending on your past history of restorations and how regularly you visit the dentist for exams.

Gum Disease

Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Because gum disease is usually painless, you may not know you have it. Also referred to as periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by the bacteria that is constantly forming on our teeth. It occurs when plaque builds up below the gum line and starts to pull the gums away from the roots of the teeth. Gum disease has been linked to diabetes and heart disease.

Oral Cancer Screening

Regular visits to your dentist can improve the chances that any suspicious changes in your oral health will be caught early, at a time when cancer can be treated more easily.
