Cleanings and Checkups
Just as you wouldn’t go into battle with a rusty or dull sword, why would you go through life with a broken or stained smile? Regular dental checkups and cleanings are a critical part of general dentistry to help maintain your overall health. Early signs of oral health issues are often discovered at these checkup appointments and can be addressed before they develop into more serious problems.
Buildup of plaque and calculus often occurs in areas that are difficult to reach, which can lead to gum disease. Calculus can only be successfully removed with special instruments. If neglected, what begins as just a pinprick in your tooth enamel today can develop into a costly problem months or even years later. Early signs of oral cancers can also be discovered and diagnosed. Regular trips to the dentist saves you time and money in the long run, which is why we recommend biannual teeth cleanings to keep our patients’ teeth and gums strong and healthy.
Comprehensive Dental Exams
A trip to the dentist for an oral exam should not just be about looking for cavities and gum disease. A variety of factors affect oral health. For example, teeth grinding and jaw clenching are the most common habits that will lead to weakened and damaged teeth and may translate into jaw, head and neck pain in time.
At Les Belles NYC, we examine all areas of your mouth to look for cavities, misalignments, and oral cancers. We take everything into consideration when it comes to your oral health. The early detection of impending issues is the best weapon to prevent the necessity of expensive and extensive dental interventions in the future. An early diagnosis of oral cancer, for example, can be lifesaving.
