Healthy teeth, gums and other structures in your mouth play an essential role in your overall quality of life. Problems with tooth decay, periodontal disease and oral cancers can cause significant discomfort and could lead to medical complications.

Having a routine dental checkup administered twice a year by a dentist like Dr. is essential for cleaning your teeth and monitoring your mouth for any early signs of a problem.

Each of these appointments starts with one of our dental hygienist performing a professional dental cleaning. It also includes a polishing treatment to help remove minor dental stains from the surfaces of your teeth.

Our dentist will then administer a comprehensive dental exam, which includes checking your mouth for signs of tooth decay and periodontal disease as well as oral cancer. Be sure to let know if you have noticed a change in a tooth or soft oral tissues since your last dental checkup.

If our dentist notices signs of a developing problem, might recommend administering a preventive treatment. I there are concerns about the strength of your tooth enamel might recommend performing a fluoride treatment to help prevent it from developing into a significant case of tooth decay.

If you live in the Edina, Minnesota, area and you have an oral health concern, should call 952-841-0122 to schedule a dental checkup at York Dental.
