Life is busy! There’s work, school, carpool, grocery shopping, meals, laundry, homework help, volunteer commitments and the list goes on and on. Just reading about all you do in a day, week, month or year is tiring! So, why do you need to add twice yearly dental exams and cleanings for you and everyone else in the family to that list? Because regular checkups may actually save you time and trouble. When you take the time for a dental checkup with one of the dentists at D&G Dental, you may be saving yourself from having to deal with an oral health problem and that can be trouble.
As general dentists, we are first and foremost committed to the health of your teeth and gums. To fulfill this commitment, we need to see you and each member of your family at least every six months. Beginning when children are between two and three years old and continuing throughout life well into old age, checkups give us the opportunity to help all of our patients maintain optimal oral health. In between these checkups, of course, it’s important for you to maintain a regular at-home oral hygiene routine.
Dental Checkups with the Dentist West Orange Trusts
When you come to D&G Dental with offices in West Orange, NJ, and Caldwell, NJ, for a dental checkup, we’ll clean and polish your teeth and remove any plaque and tartar, which can be the precursors to gum disease. We’ll also conduct a thorough oral examination. During this exam, we’ll look for signs of tooth decay, evaluate the health of your gums and perform an oral cancer screening that includes a head and neck exam. Based on our findings during this exam, we’ll be able to make treatment recommendations to help you enjoy a healthy and beautiful smile.
These regular appointments are also your chance to ask us questions or bring concerns you may have to our attention. We want to be your partner and with your help, we can provide you with the dentistry you need. Want to have a whiter smile? Then ask about our teeth whitening services, which include our Whitening for Life program. Have you been experiencing jaw pain and headaches? The problem may be temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMJ. At D&G Dental, The West Orange dentist, we treat TMJ with a custom-fitted oral appliance that you’ll wear overnight to reduce the pressure of teeth grinding and clenching. After years of crooked teeth, are you considering straightening your smile? Ask about Invisalign, which straightens teeth with clear plastic aligners that are practically invisible, removable for eating and hygiene, and as effective as traditional metal braces.
