Regular Check-ups & Cleanings
Regular check-ups and cleanings are essential for maintaining healthy teeth and gums. Cavities and gums disease usually do not hurt until they become very serious. Your check-ups will include a cleaning, an exam with Dr. Malouf and any necessary x-rays.
X-rays help Dr. Malouf see problems that are not visible by his examination alone.
Our office uses digital x-rays, which use 75% less radiation than conventional x-rays. Digital x-rays are very accurate, and the images are instantly displayed on a computer monitor for Dr. Malouf to review with you.
Daily brushing and flossing will minimize the amount of plaque and tartar build-up in our mouth, but only a professional cleaning will remove tartar in places your toothbrush and floss have missed.
