Our dental check up Quincy MA provides you with peace of mind to know that your teeth and gums are healthy, or if they need attention, that they are getting it in a timely manner. Here at Quincy Dental, our priority is prevention first, and early treatment second. Our dental exams are designed to ensure your oral health now and in the long run.
Dental plaque is the center of problems such as tooth decay and gum disease. And while you can have an enormously positive effect simply by eating a nutritious diet, limiting your sugar intake, and brushing and flossing on a daily basis, our dental check up Quincy MA is essential. Plaque can hid in gum pockets, out of reach of your oral hygiene efforts. Ultimately, it hardens into tartar, and that requires a professional teeth cleaning to deal with it. A visit to our office twice per year begins with a physical and visual inspection of your teeth and gums. If you have any loose teeth, fillings, or restorations, they can be addressed right away. And if your gums are red or irritated, it may be due to gingivitis, the early stage of gum disease. Our teeth cleaning not only eliminated all of the remaining plaque and tartar, but reverses gingivitis. And with the help of periodic x-rays, our dental check up Quincy MA will detect any cavities, even small ones, before they can lead to more serious issues. With a filling, the cavity is treated, and your tooth is no longer prone to a bacterial infection due to the breach in the protective layer of your enamel. You will also be screened for oral cancer, and referred to an appropriate specialist if any indications are found.
Schedule your six month dental check up Quincy MA and cleaning right now. When you consider the consequences of putting it off, it makes perfect sense to be proactive.
