Your chances at fighting off dental dangers such as plaque buildup and cavities, increase greatly when you attend your biannual dentist exams and cleanings. Signs of dental diseases as well as oral cancer and other complications can be detected early.

At your yearly examinations, your dentist and their associates will do an extensive cleaning to remove tartar also known as dental calculus, plaque, and other deterrents that may lead to decay, cavities, or periodontal (gum) disease. Other treatments include a fluoride application, flossing and polishing of your teeth. X-rays are used as well to examine your pulp and roots underneath tooth enamel.

Biannual examinations allow your dentist to monitor your oral health, stopping any possible infections before they have time to spread. Visiting the dentist twice a year is key along with your daily dental care of brushing twice a day and flossing daily. Dr. Nitya Balan and our professionals strive to give you a healthy smile with a professional exam and cleaning.

You may need to visit the dentist more than twice a year if there are any signs of dental problems.
