Seeing your dentist regularly and taking proper care of your teeth and gums is the best way to help prevent tooth decay, gum disease and other serious problems from affecting your oral and general health.That's why at Gerber Dental Group, we've developed a two-step preventative care program that helps you to stay healthy, save money and improve your dental health for life.
Most oral health problems are preventable. If a problem does develop, catching it at an early stage means it will be easier and less expensive to treat, not to mention helping you avoid all that pain and discomfort.
When you visit our dental practice, we'll offer preventative care for your oral health in two stages.
Your dentist and hygienist will examine your mouth in detail, looking for any signs of dental cavities (tooth decay), periodontal disease (gum disease) and other dental diseases. We'll also check whether there are any issues with your bite or your temporomandibular joint (TMJ).Your examination also includes digital radiography (x-rays) to give us a more in-depth look at your mouth and an oral cancer screening. We'll discuss the results of your check-up and order any medications or treatments that you need.
If you're at higher risk of getting a oral health disease, we may recommend that you visit us every three or four months so we can keep a closer watch on your oral health.The more often you visit your dentist, the less chance there is that you'll need an extensive dental procedure later on.
