At Regency Family Dental, we believe that an in-office oral care routine is a crucial step in helping patients maintain their dental health.
Good oral health is an important part of your overall health. Even one infected tooth can cause major problems with your oral health if timely treatment is not administered. Regular dental checkups go a long way in detecting problems in early stages when they are easily treatable. We recommend that all of our patients visit us at least once every six months for a regular checkup to complement their at-home oral care routine.
A dental examination helps us to take a close look at the health of teeth, gums and other oral structures. We use digital X-Rays to dig deeper into potential issues that we may not be able to see with the plain eye. These emit much less radiation and also allow us to view your results instantly on a screen without having to wait for the film to develop.
Oral cancer screenings are an important part of your dental exam at Regency Family Dental. Oral cancer can be a deadly disease, and our simple screening procedure could go a long way in detecting the early signs of this problem so that treatment can be started immediately.
One of the most important parts of your regular dental exam at Regency Family Dental is a professional dental cleaning, also known as prophylaxis. Even if you brush and floss daily, plaque and tartar tend to accumulate in hard-to-reach areas in your mouth. A professional cleaning treatment performed by a skilled hygienist using special dental instruments helps to clean off all plaque deposits, giving you squeaky clean, shiny white teeth and fresh breath.
