Preventive Services (Teeth Cleaning and Exam)
Having a routine dental cleaning and oral examination is one of the simplest and surest ways to maintain healthy teeth and gums. At these visits, our hygienist evaluates your gum tissues, removes any plaque, calculus (tartar), and stain from your teeth and polishes them clean. Dr. Remigailo will examine your mouth to be sure your teeth are healthy and free from tooth decay or other damage such as cracking, chipping, or deterioration of fillings. He will also check for periodontal disease and perform an oral cancer screening to detect any evidence of cancer on the gum tissue, lips, or tongue.
We customize the frequency of these visits to meet your specific dental needs. Most of our patients come in for this type of visit twice a year but sometimes it is necessary to return slightly more often if a patient has any chronic problems or a history of gum disease. We focus on providing exceptional care when you are in the office, but we also realize that your oral hygiene at home is the most important aspect of maintaining your oral health for a lifetime. If you desire, we are happy to coach you in any areas that might improve your cleaning technique at home.
