At Dental Life, we focus on a preventive approach to care and recommend visiting us twice a year for a checkup. Our comprehensive preventive program includes a Midtown teeth cleaning, dental exam, oral cancer screening and treatments designed to protect your smile. We also believe education is an important preventive tool and will take the time to teach your family about the most effective oral hygiene habits. Our goal is to make every checkup a positive, stress-free experience for you and your loved ones.
Tooth decay and gum disease are widespread oral health problems, but with a periodic Midtown teeth cleaning and dental exam, as well as brushing and flossing every day, these conditions are almost entirely preventable. Dental plaque is responsible for dental disease and when it builds up around the teeth, it produces acids, which eat away at dental enamel to form cavities. Plaque can also gather below the gum line to infect and inflame the tissues supporting the teeth to produce gum disease. As part of a comprehensive program of preventive care, we perform a professional teeth cleaning to thoroughly remove any residual plaque buildup from difficult to reach areas between your teeth and gums. We’ll also review your home care routine and offer guidance as to how you can keep your teeth clean and healthy between visits. As an added layer of protection against cavities for our youngest patients, we offer periodic fluoride treatments and dental sealants. We strive to make each child’s checkup visit an informative and engaging experience, building the foundation for a lifetime of excellent oral health. At every checkup visit, for patients of all ages, our dentist performs a comprehensive examination, using advanced digital radiography, as needed. Periodic examinations allow for the earliest possible detection and intervention of conditions that may adversely affect your oral health.
When you visit us at Dental Life for your biannual Midtown teeth cleaning and exam, you can expect personalized, state-of-the-art care from a highly skilled team of professionals. To learn more about preventive care or to schedule a checkup, give us a call today.
