Dental Checkups and Cleanings – Cherry Hill, NJ
Proactive Steps to Protect Your Teeth and Gums
As the old axiom states, “An ounce of prevention is worth more than 10 pounds of cure.” This perfectly conveys the importance of visiting us at Meadvin Dental for a checkup and cleaning, as preventive dentistry is the #1 way to avoid some of the more complex dental issues. To experience the joy of knowing that you’re fully protected, contact our Cherry Hill office to request a visit with Dr. Jodi B. Meadvin. We’re more than happy to help you achieve and maintain the excellent dental health you desire!
What You Can Expect During Your Checkup
We recommend that you visit us every six months for a checkup. Therefore, if you’ve had a new development between appointments, Dr. Meadvin can identify it, formulate a plan of action and address it before it gets out-of-hand. However, if you have a history of cavities or other forms of decay, we’d like to see you more frequently to make sure that you’re staying on track and that there are no new flare-ups.
A Thorough Cleaning for Healthy Teeth and Gums
Oral bacteria accumulation is the primary threat to your dental health. If allowed to linger, several types of the microorganisms can mix with your saliva to form dental plaque, which is a clear, sticky substance that can cling to your teeth and along the gum line. If it’s allowed to hang around, it can eat away at your enamel and cause germ pockets to form (the first stage of gum disease).
By receiving a thorough dental cleaning from one of our highly-trained dental hygienists, you can have the assurance of knowing that any harmful growths are kept at bay, which provides you with a chance to take control of your dental health moving forward.
The Other Benefits of Dental Cleanings and Checkups
In addition to serving as a major form of protection, preventive care visits also help you save money. If you have dental insurance, you can usually count on at least one visit being 100% covered each year. Better yet, by being proactive about your dental health, you can prevent the need for complex forms of care that require greater out-of-pocket contributions.
