We know that many people may feel anxious about coming to the dentist, so it is our goal to make your visit with us as pain and anxiety free as possible. At Riverdale Dental Associates, our practice is dedicated to creating beautiful, long-lasting smiles and maintaining healthy mouths. Our Fort Myers dentist can effectively help all kinds of patients, from those who are simply seeking regular, semi-annual check-ups to maintain their oral health through the years, to those who need much more in-depth reconstructive work to truly regain a healthy, beautiful smile.
Regardless of your particular needs, the best place to establish your dental health is with a teeth cleaning. This is the first step in our dental hygiene program which is designed to help prevent new cavities, preserve teeth that have been restored, and manage periodontal (gum) disease. However, we will do much more than merely clean your teeth and gums during your teeth cleaning. Your Fort Myers dentist will perform a complete oral examination which includes an oral cancer screening, periodontal evaluation, and an analysis of your occlusion (bite). This ensures a thorough examination of your teeth, their supporting structures, and of the oral anatomy. Furthermore, routine teeth cleanings and oral examinations are an incredibly effective method in preventing future dental problems, such as gum disease. There are many different varieties of periodontal disease, and many ways in which these variations manifest themselves. Gingivitis is among the most common. However, all forms of gum disease require immediate treatment by their dentist to halt the progression and save the gum tissue and bone.
Taking care of your teeth is one of the easiest and best ways to present yourself to the world. So all those things you’d rather be doing than visiting the dentist — imagine how much better they’d be if you could enjoy them while confidently showing off your beautiful and healthy smile! Call Riverdale Dental Associates today to make an appointment for your teeth cleaning with our Fort Myers Dentist. We look forward to working with you and giving you the beautiful smile that you deserve.
