Taking care of your teeth and gums should be an incredibly important part of your everyday routine. You may not realize that taking care of your oral health is integral to your overall health as well. When it comes to scheduling your annual checkups, it is vital that you also remember to include dental checkups and Midtown teeth cleaning. Our dentist and dedicated team at PresiDental Care are here to provide you and your family with the best dental care possible.
There are plenty of benefits when it comes to scheduling regular dental checkups, exams and cleanings with your dentist. It is often believed that the only time to visit a specialist is if you experience any new or unusual symptoms. While this is still absolutely true, it is important to schedule these regular exams as well in order to properly maintain your oral health and even help prevent such conditions from occurring. It is recommended that people have a complete dental checkup about once a year. These exams can allow our Midtown dentists, Dr. Figueroa and Dr. Shifteh, with a means of monitoring your dental and oral health. With the help of comprehensive documentation, including tools such as x-rays can help track the progression of your oral health and help more easily identify any minute changes. Midtown teeth cleaning here at PresiDental Care is a thorough but gentle procedure. Dentists generally recommend that patients have their teeth professionally cleaned about once every six months. Even though brushing and flossing can help limit plaque buildup from day to day, it does not prevent plaque buildup over time or remove it from those hard to reach areas. A thorough dental cleaning can help get rid of more stubborn plaque, keeping your tooth enamel free of decay and keeping your gums healthy and pink.

Our dentists are here to provide you and your family with the dental care, treatment and advice you need to keep your teeth and gums as healthy as can be.
