Dental Exams

Did you know that over half of long term teeth problems, including cavities and tooth decay, can be identified and prevented by regular checkups? As the old saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Besides being very important for your teeth, regular dental exams or checkups are also important for your gums and mouth in general. Catching little issues before they become large problems can save you money, hassle, as well as spare you discomfort. Usually by the time something does start bothering you, the treatment required is more serious and expensive! If you have children, regular dental exams and check ups not only can spare your kids the discomfort of getting cavities, but together, we can teach them good dental habits that will last a lifetime.

We recommend getting a checkup every 6 months. By having a bi-annual checkup and cleaning, your teeth will always be healthy and look good. At Pershing, we understand that life gets busy, and if its been over a year since you or your family has been to the dentist, then let our friendly staff help schedule an appointment.

When you come in, the hygienist or assistant will take a set of x-rays or a panoramic x-ray. Then, the doctor will examine the entire mouth area, including the cheeks, throat, tongue, and lips. The teeth will be checked for cavities, cracks, decay, infection, malformations and malocclusions. He will looks for any signs that signify the beginnings of cysts, tumors or symptoms of oral cancer.

After the examination, we will put together a personalized treatment plan for you, showing you your different treatment options, the cost, and number of visits. Financing options are available. Take the best care of your smile and health by having a dental exam twice a year.

Teeth Cleanings

We provide very thorough teeth cleaning. The cleaning will remove soft and hard deposits of plaque found around the base of your teeth, which cannot be removed by brushing or flossing. The plaque can cause cavities, tooth decay, infection, and periodontal disease, which is also known as gum disease.

Regular teeth cleaning is one of those things that really is a great investment of both time and money. By getting your teeth and your family’s teeth cleaned on a regular basis, you are warding off hassles, headaches (both literal and figurative), toothaches, and expenses down the road.
