Your oral health plays an important role in your overall well-being. At the office of Merkley Dental, we offer a comprehensive range of dental services to keep your smile healthy and happy. From the state-of-the-art in cosmetic, restorative, and emergency dental care, to the essentials in pediatric and preventive dentistry, we’re prepared to address the oral care needs of your entire family at our state-of-the-art facility. At every stage of life, the best way to keep your smile in good health is by practicing good oral hygiene at home as well as scheduling routine checkups and care.
How often? The American Dental Association advises patients to schedule checkups every six months. Research has shown that by combining semi-annual checkups at the dental office with a consistent oral care regimen at home, you can greatly reduce your risk of tooth decay and gum disease. When you visit our office for a checkup, our dentist will perform a comprehensive oral examination, assisted by the most advanced diagnostic technology. In this way, we can detect a wide range of emerging dental issues, from early signs of tooth decay and the first signs of gum disease, to oral pathology and more. In addition to your oral exam, we’ll also perform a professional dental cleaning to remove any accumulated plaque or tartar from the difficult to reach areas of your mouth. Because plaque buildup is responsible for the development of cavities, and gum disease, we also provide personalized instruction in the proper methods for brushing and flossing at home. When your children come in for their checkup, they’ll also receive specialized treatments such as dental sealants and fluoride therapy to strengthen their developing teeth and give them an added level of protection against tooth decay.
At the office of Merkley Dental, we’re dedicated to providing the highest quality of skilled and compassionate care. For more information on our practice and the many services we provide, give our office a call today.
