The Peck team want all our patients to experience optimal oral health so we recommend routine exams and cleanings to be done every six months. During routine exams Dr. Peck or the hygienist can identify problems when they are minuscule and very easy to treat, many times preventing more involved, and costly treatments down the road.
Our routine appointments also include education about how you can best care for your teeth and gums at home to keep them healthy. A well-executed at-home oral care routine is necessary to having a healthy mouth.
During a routine exam, we check for any signs of ,decay, gum disease, cracked or leaking fillings, cracked, chipped or broken teeth, or sores, which could lead to serious problems if left untreated. We will also address any concerns you may have such as halitosis (bad breath), crooked or crowded teeth, and tooth or mouth pain.
