Dental Check-Ups & Cleanings
Scheduling and attending regular check-ups and cleanings is the best way to prevent the need for expensive, time-consuming restorative treatments over a lifetime. Because your oral health is closely linked to your overall wellbeing, steering clear of cavities, gum disease, and other issues improves your systemic health, too. We recommend patients of all ages visit Liscio Dental at least every six months.
During a regular checkup and cleaning, we will discuss the details of your oral health, including any changes that may have developed since your last visit with us. Then, your dental hygienist will thoroughly remove plaque and tartar from your teeth and just below the gum line. By carefully charting your gums and monitoring the development of any pockets — or loose spots where infection develops — we provide early detection, diagnosis, and treatment of gum disease.
We also take x-rays at least once a year to keep track of what’s going on beneath the visible surface of your smile. If your dentist spots any issues during the examination, we will put together a plan for restorative treatment to help you regain your healthy smile as soon as possible. Gum disease therapy, fillings, traditional crown and bridge, root canal therapy, and other treatments rescue smiles after decay, infection, and injury.
When was your family’s last visit to the dentist? Don’t ignore the need for preventive care. From ages three to 103, patients of all ages should visit the dentist at least twice a year. Request an appointment with your dentist in Colchester today!
