Dental Exams & Cleanings
We bet you know the saying “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” At L Dean Simmons DDS, we’ve got our own saying: “Two dental exams a year keeps the cavities away!” Okay, it doesn’t quite rhyme as well, but it gets our point across well enough. Alongside your daily brushing and flossing, regular dental exams and cleanings are vitally important in keeping your teeth healthy, strong, and looking their best. With L Dean Simmons DDS, dental exams include thorough inspection by our expert dentists, tooth X-rays (using our digital X-ray system), and consultations on any issues that are spotted so you can make the most informed choice on how to proceed with necessary treatment. If you let too much time go between dental exams and cleanings, plaque and tooth decay can slowly build up until you’re faced with a much bigger—and potentially more painful—oral health issue that is costlier to fix. But when you visit L Dean Simmons DDS in Mt Airy for regular dental exams, here are just a few benefits you’ll receive:
- Better Health – Tooth maintenance is key to avoiding decay, gum diseases, halitosis, and other unwanted oral conditions.
- More Savings – Which would you rather pay for? A low-cost sealant procedure that protects your teeth against decay for up to 10 years…or a costlier and more painful root canal because you let a cavity go undetected for too long? Save money upfront and in the long run with more constant dental checkups and maintenance.
- More Beautiful Smiles – When your teeth get regular cleanings, it improves their aesthetic appeal, which, in turn, can boost your moods, confidence, and helps others view you in a more positive light.
