Most patients should have a dental checkup and get their teeth professionally cleaned every six months. Patients who have periodontal disease may need more frequent cleanings to keep the disease under control.
Another important element of preventive care is X-rays. We use digital X-ray technology, which emits minimal radiation, for instant images that are powerful diagnostic tools when it comes to identifying cavities and other issues that are unseen by the naked eye. These are taken at your dental checkups.
Fluoride treatments, prescription-strength fluoride toothpaste and dental sealants are other preventive measures that can be taken to promote oral health for your family.
