Regular cleanings and check-ups are the most basic ways to maintain a healthy oral cavity and to catch any potentially harmful problems before they become serious issues. Seeing a dentist 3-4 times per year for professional cleanings and examinations ensures proper oral hygiene and prevents the development of advanced dental problems. Tooth decay, gum disease, oral infections, and oral lesions can be identified, treated, or even prevented by seeing a dentist regularly.
At the Kurpis Center for Advanced Dentistry, your dental hygiene visit will include a thorough professional cleaning and home hygiene instructions, an expert diagnostic examination including careful analysis of digital x-rays, an evaluation of your teeth and gums, and an oral cancer screening to ensure your oral cavity is free of any abnormal or precancerous lesions. Our dentists will also make any recommendations for additional treatments that may be necessary. We want to protect your dental health and help you avoid future dental work by catching problems early. Prevention is really the best medicine!
