Prevention is the best medicine.
“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”
The old saying certainly holds true when you’re talking about dental care. This is the checkup that can save your life… literally.
You’re wise to make regular dental appointments for yourself and your family.
This consists of a visual examination, periodontal probing (to evaluate your healthy gum tissue), x-rays, oral cancer screening, diagnosis and treatment recommendations.
