Part of maintaining a beautiful, healthy smile is receiving routine checkups and cleanings. At Preston Sherry Dental Associates, we strive to provide the best dental care for our patients, including preventive dentistry. We recommend annual checkups and professional cleanings at least twice a year for our patients to stay on top of dental issues and to prevent the onset of gum disease.
Home dental hygiene is necessary to protect your teeth and overall health. Yet even with stringent adherence to daily brushing and flossing, dental problems can arise. Routine checkups and cleanings can identify dental issues and offer a chance to receive proactive treatments to curb further oral health problems. Our dental hygienists and experienced dentists work together with our patients to maintain excellent dental health during these crucial routine appointments.
Comprehensive Dental Exams
One of the most effective ways to prevent tooth loss and progressive dental issues is by maintaining a proactive approach to dental care. During routine visits, our hygienist will thoroughly inspect your teeth and gums before performing cleanings. Plaque and tartar buildup can be removed using specialized instruments, protecting your teeth and gums from infection, decay and disease.
Once your cleaning is completed, your dentist will perform a comprehensive dental exam. Using digital x-rays and a visual examination of your mouth, the dentist can identify any potential issues that need treatment. By catching small areas of decay or damage early, we can address them before they put your oral or overall health at risk. This can protect your smile and reduce the cost of your overall dental treatments in the long run.
Preventive dental care is usually covered under most insurance plans, making it affordable to stay on top of your oral health. Our friendly team at Preston Sherry Dental Associates can help you determine what your insurance covers for cleanings and checkups. We also offer flexible payment options and a money-saving wellness plan for those needing dental coverage for preventive care.
