Check Ups & Exams
Before any type of treatment is ever performed, we need to get to the root of the problem and see whether you have any dental problems that need to be resolved. This is done with a simple and quick dental check-up. During your check-up, our staff will examine your teeth and look for common problems such as cavities, tooth decay, or gum disease.
Our certified and professional dental hygienist will recommend that you come in at least twice a year to maintain the maximum in oral health. We strongly suggest a cleaning be performed at least once every six months. Not only can this prevent future issues from cropping up, but it will also give us an idea of any areas in your mouth that need special attention or treatment. During your dental cleaning, you’ll receive diagnostic and preventive services as well as advice to maintain a fresh smile. Our cleaning services may include:
- Evaluation of your gum tissue

Advice We Tend to Give Patients
