Dental Cleanings: why visit the dentist?
Even if you are enjoying good oral health it is highly beneficial for your long-term dental health to visit our Bucks County dentist twice a year for a dental exam and cleaning.
Our dental care team is experienced in all aspects of dental hygiene. A dental cleaning with one of our hygienists is far more thorough than at-home tooth brushing. We take digital x-rays on a regular basis to look for any signs of wear, damage, or decay. The combination of digital diagnostics, a thorough visual dental exam, and dental cleaning will help you avoid dental health problems.
We are focused on patient comfort and will make every effort to explain the steps of a routine dental care visit. Our gentle and compassionate manner will help you feel relaxed and confident in your dental care. Dr. Kalochie takes a personal approach to the oral health needs of every patient and will take the time to get to know you and understand your unique risk factors for dental concerns. This allows our team to support the health of your smile with individualized advice for at-home oral hygiene between visits.
Routine dental cleanings also include screenings for tooth decay, gum disease, and signs of oral cancer. Spotting any of these concerns early is important and can enable conservative treatment measures to be successful. Tooth cavities and gum disease do not go away without proper treatment and are leading causes of tooth loss in adults today. Prompt treatment in the early stages of development typically means that we can halt the progression of disease and restore your dental health with a tooth filling or periodontal therapy.
