One of the best ways you can protect your smile is through routine dental checkups and cleanings. While your home oral hygiene is important, professional preventive dental care is vital to your oral health. The Dentist Centers offer comprehensive dental exams to monitor for dental and oral health issues, with professional dental cleanings to help prevent decay and gum disease.
Brushing and flossing at least twice a day can eliminate many of the bacteria that cause decay and oral infections. Yet, even with meticulous oral hygiene habits, you can have areas that hide pockets of plaque and tartar. Most people should have professional cleanings twice a year or more to remove any tartar or plaque that is difficult to reach during home oral care. Our hygienists perform a thorough cleaning and monitor your gums for periodontal disease, helping to prevent further oral health problems down the road.
Comprehensive Dental Exams
At least once a year, you should receive a comprehensive dental exam to identify any possible oral health issues. Not only does Dr. Myers check for tooth decay, infections or damage, he can also screen for oral cancer during your exam. Catching any issues in the early stages, whether it is tooth decay or a possible cancerous lesion, is essential for protecting your health. Our office uses the latest options in dental technology and imaging to help identify dental and oral health problems that can be missed when only performing a physical dental exam.
Preventive care visits are not only one of the best ways to maintain optimal oral health, they are usually cost effective. Most dental insurance plans cover checkups and cleanings, and we accept many different types of insurance at our office. We also have an in-office dental savings plan that covers most exams, x-rays and cleanings.
