Checkups & Hygiene

The most important aspect of preventive dental care includes six-month checkups and hygiene visits. Dr. Wei encourages patients to book their next checkup early to reserve a convenient time and date.

At a checkup, we screen for many diseases and oral problems that can escalate into serious issues if left untreated. These include oral cancer, gum disease, tooth decay, malocclusion, and faulty dental work. X-rays and digital photos will help Dr. Wei determine underlying issues that need to be addressed, as well. We can also discuss cosmetic enhancements if you are interested in improving the appearance of your smile.

We will inspect your teeth and gums, give you tips for effective brushing and flossing, then answer your questions about your homecare routine. To clean your teeth, we will gently remove plaque and calculus and polish them to a silky finish. If we find that you have early-stage gum disease (gingivitis) or advanced gum disease (periodontitis), we will recommend periodontal therapy.
