West Long Branch Exams and Teeth Cleanings
Oral wellness, done right.
What are dental exams and teeth cleanings?
Dental exams and cleanings provide us with the opportunity to evaluate and improve your current methods of dental care, as well as detect problems before they become serious. We also use this time to teach you about prevention so that future visits do not require more extensive treatment than necessary.
For our exams at Jersey Shore Smiles in West Long Branch, we begin by expertly cleaning your teeth and thoroughly checking for signs of tooth decay or gum disease. We may or may not perform an x-ray depending on your personal oral health. Then, we’ll ask a few tailored questions about your current methods of dental care and with all the information gathered we will demonstrate proper dental care and provide suggested treatments for optimal oral health.
As a general rule of thumb our West Long Branch dentists at Jersey Shore Smiles recommend you regularly schedule an exam and cleaning every six months. However, some patients may need more or less time between their exams which is why we recommend you consult with our team with regards to future exam scheduling.
What are the benefits of dental exams and teeth cleanings?
The importance of oral hygiene cannot be overstated. If you don’t keep your mouth clean, bacteria can build up and form plaque which can lead to long-term problems such as gum disease or tooth loss later in life. A good personal dental care routine that includes regular dental exams and teeth cleanings at Jersey Shore Smiles in West Long Branch can prevent these long term ailments from ever happening to you.
