Your Annual Dental Exam
Early Detection Means Better Health
Keeping your smile healthy and bright is easy when you remember your routine dental care. Part of that routine is your annual exam. Annual oral exams are just as crucial for keeping your smile and your body healthy as any of the other routine exams you schedule for yourself and for your children every year.
Regular Visits Maintain Good Health
Regular visits ensure that you are maintaining your good oral health by visual examination and comparison with your previous dental check-ups. Dr. Ratner will be able to detect any early signs of problems with your teeth or gums. With early detection, cavities, broken fillings and gum disease are easily treatable. If these problems go untreated, root canals, gum surgery and removal of teeth could become the only treatment options available. And according to the Oral Cancer Foundation, someone dies from oral cancer every hour of every day in the U.S. When you have your dental cleanings, Dr. Ratner is also screening you for oral cancer, which is highly curable if diagnosed early.
