The Sanders-Loe team want all our patients to experience optimal oral health so we recommend periodic exams and cleanings to be done bi-annually. During routine exams the hygienist, Dr. Sanders or Dr. Loe can see problems when they are minuscule and very easy to treat, many times preventing more involved, and costly treatments in the future.
Our routine visits 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 essential 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 halitosis (bad breath), crooked or crowded teeth, and tooth or mouth pain.
