Optimal oral health begins with regular dental checkups. At Premier Dentistry of Philadelphia, we recommend a visit every six months for most of our patients. Your regular checkup will include a comprehensive exam, a professional cleaning, an oral cancer screening and when necessary, digital X-rays to take a closer look at your oral health.
Complete Examination and Professional Cleaning - During your checkup at Premier Dentistry of Philadelphia, we will check for any sign of decay, gum disease, or other dental issues. If necessary, we will recommend appropriate follow-up or action. You will also receive a professional cleaning. This procedure involves the use of a hand-held tool to scrape plaque and tartar from your teeth. Then a tooth polish will make your teeth smoother to avoid plaque and tartar from collecting. The hygienist will also floss between each tooth to remove any remaining plaque.
Oral Cancer Screening - This important screening of your mouth and its tissues is to detect any signs that could indicate oral cancer. This vital examination can prevent a life-threatening condition from progressing and greatly improve chances for recovery.
Digital X-rays - In our state-of-the-art offices, we use digital X-rays when necessary to take a closer view of your teeth and gums. These will help us to see any changes or issues that need to be addressed.
