Oral Health Care
Regular Dental Exams help protect your oral health and general well-being. A dental exam gives your dentist a chance to provide tips on caring for your teeth and to detect any problems early — when they’re most treatable.
Routine Exams are also a very important part of preventive care. At Belltown Dental we will evaluate your overall dental health, tooth decay, gum disease and hygiene. It might include x-rays. After your Routine Dental Exam, Dr Danziger will discuss preventive measures you can take to improve and protect your oral health.
Even if you take excellent care of your teeth and gums at home, you still need to see a dentist regularly. Your dentist can check for problems that you may not see or feel. Many dental problems don’t become visible or cause pain until they are in more advanced stages. Examples include cavities, gum disease and oral cancer. Regular visits allow your dentist to find early signs of disease. Problems can be treated at a manageable stage.
On average, seeing a dentist twice a year works well for many people. Read more..
