Keeping teeth healthy is easy when you get dental cleanings and check-ups at our Center City dental office every six months. Even if you brush and floss every day, there is no substitute for a professional teeth cleaning.
Our dentists and hygienists are standing by, ready to be part of the dental team that keeps your mouth healthy.
Dental cleanings and check-ups are routine procedures, but they are also tailored to your unique oral health needs to ensure that your mouth is clean and healthy. Here’s what to expect:
Cleaning: Every visit begins with a thorough cleaning of your teeth and gums by one of our talented dental hygienists. They scrape away built-up tartar and plaque, particularly in hard-to-reach places and between the teeth, polish the teeth, and floss carefully.
Education: Our hygienists also educate patients about the basics of oral health and the best methods for at-home dental care, including recommendations for toothbrushes, toothpastes, and other cleaning tools.
Consultation: If you have questions about procedures or problems, now is the time to ask. Want to talk about veneers, teeth whitening, or dental implants? Get your answers and estimates so you can think about what you want for your smile going forward.
X-Rays: Usually once a year, depending on your dental insurance and your oral health needs, you will have bitewing x-rays taken so your dentist can see your teeth in greater detail. These low radiation x-rays identify any hidden or growing problems so they can be addressed quickly and effectively.
Exam: Either Dr. Kimmie Patel or Dr. Kunal Parikh will visit you during your check-up and conduct an exam of your oral health. This comprehensive evaluation includes an oral cancer screening which only takes minutes but is critical to your health. A dentist will recognize signs of this cancer immediately so aggressive early action can be taken to treat it.
Regular dental cleanings and check-ups may seem like just one more thing you have to fit into your already full schedule, but they’re an important part of your overall health and well-being, for many reasons:
