Regular dental care is a vitally important part of overall health. Dr. Roberts Family Dentistry offers comprehensive exams, cleanings, and general dental care for families and children 3 and up.
Your general care visit, recommended every 6 months, includes a check-up and a cleaning. During the check-up we’ll examine your teeth, checking for cavities, plaque, and tartar. We also examine your gums and mouth, checking for signs of swelling or gum disease.
During the cleaning, one of our dental professionals will use special tools to remove tartar and plaque. While regular brushing and flossing are important and help to clean plaque from your teeth on a daily basis, this periodic deep-cleaning removes tartar, the hardened plaque that you may have missed, and is an important part of your dental health routine.
We highly recommend coming in every 6 months for your general care visit, and pride ourselves in offering a warm, comforting environment.
Don’t be surprised when Dr. Roberts puts on some weird yellow glasses and starts shining a blue light at you in your next dental visit! Believe it or not, she’s checking your mouth for cancer. No poking, prodding, or bad-tasting dyes are needed.
OralID™ technology allows Dr. Roberts to easily and efficiently check every mouth signs of cancer. This quick, easy screening is done free of charge each and every time you come in for a routine cleaning and checkup!
OralID’s fluorescence technology uses a simple blue light that Dr. Roberts will shine into your mouth; this allows her to identify oral cancer, pre-cancer, and other abnormalities at an early stage.
Dr. Roberts cares about your total oral health, and we’re thrilled to have this cutting edge, simple but powerful technology at our fingertips.
