Regular Exams and Cleanings

It is very important for patients to take good care of their oral health. Studies continue to find that one’s oral health has a direct correlation to his or her body’s overall health and wellbeing. While patients can maintain good at-home dental care every day, they should also visit Dr. Kotecha and her associates, of Dentistry On 10, to receive regular examinations and professional cleanings at least twice a year.

During these examinations, Dr. Kotecha and her associates examine the gums and teeth for any signs of periodontal disease. They look for signs of decay or cavities, and may complete x-rays to check the health of the bone and tooth roots. At this time, They also perform a thorough cleaning of the teeth to remove plaque and tartar and polishes the teeth. The appointment takes approximately 45 minutes to complete.

Gingivitis, which is the first stage of periodontal disease, is controllable and early intervention can assist patients in stopping the problem before it progresses into severe stages and causes permanent damage to the smile.

These visits are a great time for patients to talk to Dr. Kotecha and her associates about their dental health and discuss any concerns that they may have.
