Why Dental Exams And Cleanings Are Important
Did you know that regular dental cleanings and exams are the only way to completely prevent major instances of decay and disease? By allowing our skilled dental professionals to examine your mouth twice per year, you are ensuring that we catch any problems that do pop up while they are still small. At this point, we can offer treatment or other advice for correcting the problem before it becomes a large problem. This can save you money, pain, and time. By scheduling a quick exam twice per year, you can save yourself countless headaches due to large dental problems.

Cleanings are also especially important because our trained professionals are able to remove buildup from your smile that you simply cannot at home. This buildup can be harmful, causing decay and gum disease … by allowing us to remove it regularly, you are preventing problems from occurring in the first place.

What To Expect From A Routine Visit To Our Office
A routine dental cleaning and exam visit at Edgewood Dental Care is simply and stress-free. You will first see our hygienist. They will take care of getting your X-rays and providing you with your cleaning. They will remove buildup and send you on your way with a squeaky-clean smile! Next, you will be examined by the doctor. This is the time to talk about any minor problems that may have popped up and discuss solutions.  If you maintain regular visits, your problems should be minimal if they exist at all and this discussion should be short.

Other Preventive Services We Offer
In addition to our routine dental cleanings and exams, we offer a variety of preventive services that you may be interested in. Take advantage of these options to protect yourself even further from disease and decay.
