Regular dental care is imperative to prevent dental issues from occurring. Drs. Nader and Resek recommend that you receive preventive dental care at least every six months through regular visits to our office. These routine checkups include dental cleanings, X-rays, comprehensive exams, and the explanation of treatment options.
During the teeth cleaning in Oakmont, Pennsylvania, our hygienist will remove any tartar, or hard mineral buildup, from your teeth. Then they will floss your teeth. To finish up, a polishing compound is used and fluoride is applied to your teeth. Our dentists will then perform a comprehensive exam. They will inspect every tooth and all of your gums for signs of decay. We may also want to take X-rays as this helps us locate any cavities or other dental issues. If any problems are found in your smile, our dentists will explain your treatment options to you. Our team wants to make certain that you understand what is going on with your smile.
In addition to your routine visits, our staff at Oakmont Family Dentists urges you to schedule an appointment if you experience any kind of dental pain or emergency. Please let us know as soon as possible if you have a toothache, swelling in the face or gums, a cracked or broken tooth, or if you lose a filling. We look forward to caring for your smile.
