The team at Gladstone Family Dental want all their patients to experience optimal oral health so they recommend routine exams and cleanings to be done every six months. During routine exams Drs. Platt or Dale or the hygienist can detect problems when they are small and very easy to treat, many times preventing costly, more involved treatments down the road.
Our routine visits also include education 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 crucial to having a healthy mouth.
During a routine exam we check for any signs of decay, gum disease, cracked or leaking fillings, cracked, chipped or broken teeth, or sores, which may 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.
