Our dentist and team are eager to assist you in readying your smile for the spring season by performing a professional dental exam and cleaning at regular intervals. Receiving dental checkups every six months advances your oral health, and should be combined with your daily at-home routine of brushing and flossing your smile.

Regular dental exams and cleanings prevent oral issues such as bad breath, cavities, and gum disease, and give us the ability to identify and address these conditions right away before the reach advanced and expensive stages. Dental exams can also identify health concerns such as the early stages of oral cancer, and dental cleanings contribute toward lowering your risk of stroke, heart disease, and other medical issues.

During your dental checkups, our team will examine your smile, take a few dental X-rays, remove tartar around your gums, and floss and polish your teeth. Then Dr. Steven Sachs can follow up by examining your smile for the following:

— Signs of tooth decay

— Any vulnerabilities in your gum health

— The health of your bite

— Signs of TMJ or bruxism

— Presence of oral cancer or an infection
