If you ever wonder why your dental checkups are so important, you’re not alone. Many people have the same question. Your dentist, Dr. Mohamed Waheed, strongly encourages you to visit Elite Dentistry PC every six months for your dental checkup because it helps your smile and oral health survive. This is because it includes many services that can help your teeth, gums, and entire mouth stay in tip-top shape. To explain a little more, we are happy to list the services provided, which are:

-Diagnostic services: These include things like examining your teeth, gums, and entire mouth for dental issues; taking dental X-rays to further and deeply examine your smile; checking your biting, chewing, and swallowing patterns; and proving an oral cancer screening and examination.

-Preventive services: These include things like removing harmful substances from the smile (like plaque and tartar) to prevent major dental issues, removing stains from the surfaces of the teeth, strengthening the chompers with a fluoride treatment, protecting the teeth with dental sealants (if possible), polishing the smile (including the teeth, dental fillings, and dental crowns), deeply cleaning the mouth, and caring for dentures, dental bridges, and other restorations.

-Educational services: These include things like teaching you how to properly clean your teeth and gums, telling you about the best nutrition choices that help your smile, recommending future treatments and appointments, evaluating your oral hygiene routine and helping you improve, and helping you with tobacco cessation.
