Dental Exams & Cleanings

Dental Exams & Cleanings in Northeast Philadelphia, PA

Here at Mayfair Family Dentistry on Frankford Avenue in Philadelphia, PA, we specialize in family dentistry, and we want to provide you with high-quality care. You should schedule routine check-ups with your dentist every six months to keep up with your oral health. Routine check-ups and cleaning help preserve your oral and dental health.

The Importance of Regular Exams

Regular check-ups are important because they help you catch dental issues early on. For instance, oral cancer takes someone’s life every hour. However, many cancers are curable if they are caught within the beginning stage. Check-ups are also important for those who have had dental work done in the past. Your dentist will check on any existing fillings to ensure that they are not cracked. Cracked fillings create spaces in the teeth where bacteria can fester and cause infection and tooth decay. If your dentist is able to catch dental issues early on, then you have more time to discuss financial arrangements to cover the procedures that are necessary. Here at our practice, we offer in-house payment plans.

The Importance of Teeth Cleanings

If you are concerned about having yellow, dingy teeth, you may want to consider getting your teeth cleaned regularly. During a professional dental cleaning, a hygienist will be able to remove most of the stains and discoloration from your teeth. While there is the aesthetic value of teeth cleaning, there are also a multitude of health benefits as well. Having your teeth cleaned can help prevent gum disease, which can lead to tooth loss. Gum disease has also been linked to cardiovascular disease. Getting your teeth cleaned regularly can reduce the chances of having a stroke or a heart attack. We specialize in cosmetic dentistry, so if you want more than just a teeth cleaning, you can take advantage of our teeth whitening promotion. Get a whitening service for $250. Or, if you need a little more than that, you can try Invisalign for $500.
