A healthy smile can last a lifetime. The key is through preventative care. As we assist you in preventing common conditions like tooth decay and gum disease, you can avoid more extensive (or unnecessary) treatments in the future. Early intervention allows for smaller, more minimally-invasive therapies to keep you smiling for years to come.
Dental Checkups and Cleanings in in Kinnelon, NJ
As part of your family's six-month checkups, we'll complete appropriate steps like:
Preventative Cleaning — Gentle removal of plaque, tartar deposits, and a final polish to remove any superficial staining.
Dental Exam — Dr. Robert or Dr. Jessica in Kinnelon, New Jersey will evaluate your teeth, gums, existing dental work, and discuss any concerns you may have.
Gum Disease Screenings — Periodontal disease is the leading cause of tooth loss. Early screenings prevent bone and gum deterioration.
Dental Sealants — Block out cavity-causing bacteria in the deep grooves of back teeth. Sealants are ideal for children whose adult molars are newly erupted.
Diagnostic X-rays — Low-dose digital X-rays allow us to screen for decay or disease that's not visible during your clinical exam.
Oral Cancer Exam — This deadly disease can be difficult to screen for on your own. Regular assessments can help save your life.
Orthodontic, TMJ, or Sleep Apnea Screening — Your oral anatomy (including tooth alignment and oral tissue positioning) can affect the way you bite, sleep, and even if you get headaches frequently.
Fluoride — Professional fluoride applications help to remineralize weak areas of enamel to prevent tooth decay.
