Preventive dentistry is the difference between spending thousands of dollars and having bad teeth, and saving money while keeping your smile bright. At Mahar Dental, our priority is helping you be proactive about your dental hygiene, so you don't have to worry about more significant procedures down the road.
Effective oral care happens both at home and in the office. With our expert team to counsel you on your dental health, you can be sure that you'll get the best cleanings, exams, and other care available.
Cleanings, Exams & Digital X-rays
The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends a routine check-up up roughly twice a year. A routine appointment with Dr. Mahar will typically include a professional cleaning and a detailed examination of your teeth, gums, and other oral tissues. We may also recommend an oral cancer screening for our older patients.

Also known as periodontal disease, gum disease is something we check for at every cleaning and exam. Gum disease usually happens when not brushing and flossing enough, though some plaque still builds up anyway. If not treated early on, it can cause painful infections and even the loss of teeth.

Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer can start minor, appearing as a growth or sore that sticks around. But if it's not treated the cancer can spread to your tongue, your lips, and even your throat. And if it gets really bad, it can even become life-threatening. Oral cancer is particularly risky for men, who are twice as likely as women to develop it.
That's why it's crucial to make screenings a regular part of your preventive dentistry routine. At our offices, we can do a simple physical and visual examination of your mouth and throat when getting your routine exam.
