Maintaining your oral health for a lifetime requires visiting the dentist for regular dental checkups to address developing oral issues before they can affect the health of your smile.

Your dental checkup includes a thorough dental cleaning performed by a dental hygienist to remove the tartar that hardens at the gum line. Our team will also keep an eye out for areas of risk that could result in tooth decay or gum disease, and conclude the cleaning by polishing the teeth to remove minor surface stains on your tooth enamel.

During your visit, one of our dentists will thoroughly examine your smile for weakened areas that need attention and for signs of tooth decay or periodontal disease, and then discuss your treatment options. Teeth that have experienced tooth enamel erosion can receive a basic fluoride treatment to improve the quality of the enamel and prevent the development of a dental issue before your next visit.

Finally, we can screen your mouth for signs of oral cancer in the tissues of the lips, neck, tongue, cheeks, or throat.
