Routine cleanings and regular exams with your dentist are critical for optimal oral health. It is recommended to come in for a routine exam and cleaning at least once every six months to make sure that your teeth and gums are healthy. With technological advancements, exams are done quickly and more efficiently than ever before. During an exam the dentist will examine your teeth and gums for signs of decay, disease and any other specific health problems. X-rays may be taken if your dentist sees need for further investigation into what is happening beneath the surface of the gums and teeth. No matter how efficiently you brush and floss, dental plaque is bound to build up over time and can lead to cavities, gingivitis and periodontal disease. Routine cleanings done at our office are quick and easy. During our cleanings, all dental plaque is removed, leaving your mouth feeling healthier and cleaner than ever before. Here at Dr. Schreiner’s office we use all of the latest technology, and have a caring and committed staff to assist you throughout your routine exams and cleanings.
