Ensuring the Health of Your Smile with Dental Checkups
Every day, our teeth accumulate dental plaque and food debris, and while some of that buildup can be brushed and flossed away, professional dental exams and cleanings ensure your smile is clean, polished and as healthy as possible. So, while dental cleanings can feel overemphasized, they are actually one of the most important and effective treatments available.
With a regularly scheduled dental exam and cleaning in Palos Heights, Illinois, patients receive the following benefits to their oral health:
- Signs of oral diseases or advanced decay are more likely to be caught at an early stage
- Your teeth are smooth, cleaned, flossed and polished
- Any plaque and tartar is removed, helping to prevent cavities and periodontal disease
- A topical fluoride is applied, strengthening your protection against dental caries
We also use advanced digital X-rays during any checkups to visualize the internal integrity of your oral health. With this added precision and magnification, Dr. Nils Sandstrom can ensure your smile is healthy and free of any structural and functional concerns. We can also make sure that, with the results of your X-rays, that any harmful dental conditions are treated as early as possible.
As you can see, there are a number of advantages in visiting us regularly for your oral healthcare needs. If you would like to meet with our dentist and learn more about the condition of your smile and how it may be improved and cared for, we encourage you to call us at 708-388-2500.
