dentist regularly is key to maintaining healthy teeth and gums. Regular dental
exams and dental cleanings can help you avoid dangerous oral problems,
such as periodontal disease, and will help you maintain good health and
a confident smile.
During your first dental visit, Dr. Spalitto will first examine your mouth
and gums for signs of tooth decay, cavities, gum disease, and oral cancer.
He may also check your jaw, face, and neck for signs of oral cancer or
illness. Next, he will take dental X-rays to check the condition and health
of your teeth and bones. Your dentist will also check your biting, chewing,
and swallowing patterns to make sure that there are no problems.
A member of his team will perform your dental cleaning. She will remove
the tartar and plaque from your teeth that can lead to periodontal disease.
She will also clean your teeth with toothpaste, and then polish them to
remove stains. If a serious problem has been identified, such as a cavity,
missing crown, or a tooth that needs to be extracted, she will let you
know. Dr. Spalitto is known for being able to do same day dental implants
and same day crowns.
