The team at Peck want all our patients to experience optimal oral health so we recommend periodic cleanings and exams to be done every 6 months. During routine exams the hygienist or Dr. Peck can see problems when they are small and very easy to treat, many times preventing more involved, and costly treatments in the future.
Our routine visits also include education on 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 crucial to having a healthy mouth.
During a routine exam, we check for any signs of gum disease, decay, leaking or cracked fillings, chipped, cracked 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 crowded or crooked teeth, mouth or tooth pain and halitosis (bad breath).
