Routine dental cleanings and exams are essential, no matter what age. Even young children need to see a dentist at least twice a year for routine dental cleanings and exams. That’s why our Bergenfield and Tappan offices are proud to serve your entire family.
When you come for a visit, our gentle hygienists will clean your teeth and inspect your gums for any signs of gum disease. Not only is gum disease the leading cause of tooth loss in adults, it can make patients more susceptible to a range of other health problems as well. Our hygienists are trained to detect, deter, and treat gum disease before it becomes a serious issue. We always want to treat it—and any other oral health problem—as soon as possible to prevent more advanced trouble later on.
If we find anything during your visit that requires additional care, we’ll be happy to discuss your treatment options with you. We can also answer questions you may have. We want every one of our patients to be fully informed of their needs and options so they can make the most educated choices possible.
Is it time for you to schedule your family’s next visit? Call Smile More Dentistry to schedule a consultation. We offer cleanings and exams to patients of all ages living in or around Bergenfield, NJ and Tappan, NY.
