The Peck team want all our patients to experience excellent oral health so we recommend routine cleanings and exams to be done every 6 months. During routine exams the hygienist or Dr. Peck can identify problems when they are small and very easy to treat, many times preventing more involved, and costly treatments down the road.
Our routine check-ups 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 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 might have such as halitosis (bad breath), crooked or crowded teeth, and tooth or mouth pain.
