Regular cleanings and checkups are a critical component to maintaining a healthy mouth. Skipping or avoiding your general dental care can lead to problems such as tooth decay, gum disease and more. If left untreated for an extended period of time, you may be faced with tooth loss and/or threats to your overall health. While your oral hygiene habits at home are an important step towards optimal dental health, nothing can be a substitute for a professional cleaning from your dentist. At Town Center Dental of LaGrange, we deliver excellence when it comes to dental cleanings and checkups. Dr. Paes is a gentle and skilled dentist who can treat your entire family with preventive dental care in a comfortable environment. If it has been six months or longer since your last dental checkup, please call our Lagrangeville office today to schedule your appointment.
Comprehensive Dental Exams
A comprehensive exam at Town Center Dental of LaGrange includes a detailed examination of your teeth, jaws and oral soft tissues. We use advanced digital x-rays and intraoral pictures to reveal the most accurate depiction of your oral health. If necessary, additional diagnostics using 3D imaging are also available. Our experience and knowledge are combined with the use of state-of-the-art equipment to ensure we catch dental problems at the earliest, most treatable stage.
Your routine dental appointment will also involve a meticulous cleaning of your teeth and gums. One of our hygienists will use special instruments to remove stubborn plaque and stains from your smile. Hardened plaque, or tartar, is a primary trigger for tooth decay and gum disease. However, it cannot be removed with simple brushing and flossing at home. Maintaining your professional cleaning schedule with your dentist is paramount in protecting your oral health through all stages of life.
Beyond x-rays and a cleaning, your dental exam will also include screenings for oral cancer and periodontal disease. We do everything we can to help patients maintain a healthy and beautiful smile. If a problem should arise during your comprehensive dental exam, you can trust Dr. Paes to handle it with ease. We offer a full range of services in general, restorative and cosmetic dentistry under one roof.
