Why is Routine Dental Care Important?
Biannual dental visits are an important part of maintaining the overall appearance and health of the smile. At regular dental visits, we offer dental cleanings, screenings, and x-rays. These treatments are a part of preventative dental care. For patients who visit the dentist every six months, or twice a year, we are better able to prevent any emerging dental problems. During routine dental visits, our office provides:
- Dental Cleanings: Our dental hygienists use specialized dental tools to thoroughly clean the teeth and gums. They can also perform scaling and root planing treatments. Used in tandem, these treatments help prevent the development of gum disease. Scaling removes plaque and tartar from around and beneath the gums. Root planing removes bacteria buildup on the tooth roots.
- Digital X-rays: Our office uses digital x-rays, which have greatly reduced radiation exposure by 80 percent. Compared to traditional x-rays, digital x-rays create a clearer picture of the teeth and gums. With digital x-rays, we can see any developing problems, including decay, misalignment, and even wisdom teeth eruption.
- Oral Health Screenings: Dental problems like tooth decay and gum disease are highly damaging to the smile. Over time, they can degrade the tooth enamel and gum tissue. We will also examine the smile for any signs of oral cancer, which is often marked by mouth sores

Common Patient FAQs
There are several common questions that we often get from our dental patients, including:
How often should I visit the dentist?
Patients should receive dental care every six months, or twice a year. During routine appointments, our dental hygienists can reach areas of the smile that can be missed by your toothbrush or dental floss.
Do you accept dental insurance?
Yes, Perfect Smiles accepts Aetna, Guardian, Metlife, Cigna, Delta Dental, and more. We also accept payment plans through CareCredit.
What do I do if I have a dental emergency?
Contact our office if you have an urgent dental problem. However, if you also have physical injuries, please visit the hospital first. We can treat common emergencies such as lost permanent teeth, dental injuries, and toothaches in our office afterward.
Can my children receive dental care at Perfect Smiles?
Yes, Perfect Smiles is a family dental office that allows parents and their children to receive care in the same visit. We will often recommend that parents bring their children to the dentist after their baby teeth emerge. For older children, we can provide fluoride and dental sealants to fight off cavities and tooth decay. Every member of your family can receive oral health care in our office.
