When you stay on top of your six-month checkups and cleanings at Kulick Dental Group, you’re doing more than visiting a team of friendly faces twice a year. You’re giving a team of professionals the opportunity to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy and strong -- preventing far more serious problems later on.
At your regular appointment, we’ll check your mouth for the small but significant warning signs of potentially serious conditions – like periodontal disease, oral cancer, tooth decay and worn dental work. Most of these issues are easily resolved when caught in their earliest stages, but can often result in uncomfortable symptoms and time-consuming treatments when ignored for too long.
To keep your teeth and gums as healthy as possible, schedule a dental appointment to make sure you’re getting adequate exposure to fluoride. It’s an important mineral for strengthening tooth enamel. Children and adults alike benefit from regular exposure to fluoride.
Although most cities throughout the United States have added fluoride to their water sources, many people opt for bottled water. However, that decision greatly reduces exposure to the wonderful, tooth-strengthening benefits of fluoride. If you prefer to drink bottled water over tap, make sure you choose a toothpaste that’s approved by the American Dental Association, as these formulas are guaranteed to contain the mineral.
Fluoride treatment is a crucial step for healthy teeth, but you should never add a supplement without obtaining a professional opinion first. We can evaluate your need for fluoride at your twice-annual checkup and cleaning, and make a recommendation if we believe you could use more for healthier teeth. Fluoride mouth rinse is one good option for added exposure when combined with fluoridated toothpaste.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Every six months during your checkups, we’ll also conduct an oral cancer screening. This is a fast, simple process that has the ability to save our patients’ lives, which is why we’re incredibly thorough when we conduct them. We’ll examine your lips, oral tissues, and throat for any signs of cancer, like red and white patches in the mouth or oral sores that haven’t healed within at least two weeks. If we spot anything out-of-the-ordinary, we’ll refer you for additional testing.
Dental Checkups & Cleanings for Kids
Just like yourself, your little one should come in for checkups and cleanings every six months. While we don't treat all ages, we will happily make a referral for any patients outside of our care. Because their smile is still growing, it’s important for us to make sure that everything is developing properly. We’ll take digital X-rays of their mouth and conduct a thorough visual examination in search of any common oral health problems, like cavities. Then, we’ll clear their mouth of any plaque and tartar that has accumulated over the months. We’re also happy to provide parents with helpful tips and tricks to get their children invested in their oral health.
