Regular dental exams are essential for early detection of tooth decay, gum disease, oral cancer, and many other oral conditions. When problems are detected early it makes the treatment easier, less expensive, and more effective. Exams are complemented with x-rays, which reveal problems that are not visible in the oral cavity.
Dental cleanings are a crucial part of preventive dental care. When plaque and tartar are removed, your oral health improves, minimizing your risk of gingivitis and periodontal disease.
