Regular dental exams are crucial for not only maintaining a healthy smile, but also identifying and preventing any new issues from progressing. At Webster Dental Care, our dentists recommend that patients schedule appointments twice a year for dental cleanings and exams, but this guideline increases for patients who are at high risk for gum disease, cavities, and decay. During your checkup, our experienced team will professionally clean your teeth, take dental x-rays to check for hidden abnormalities, and review best at-home practices for maintaining your smile.
General Dentistry Services
Dental Exams: During your visit, your dentist will perform preventative oral care procedures, including taking x-rays, checking for gum disease, and examining for tooth decay.
Professional Dental Cleaning: Our hygienists safely remove plaque and tartar buildup that is missed during regular brushing and finish by polishing the teeth for a clean, healthy smile.
Dental X-Rays: In addition to dental exams, dental x-rays detect signs of decay, bone loss, root issues, and more that are not visible on the surface of the teeth.
Home Care: Following your dental exam and cleaning, your dentist will review the best cleaning techniques for at-home brushing, flossing, and rinsing.
