Routine checkups with your trusted general dentist, Dr. Baruch Lifshitz, are essential for even the healthiest of patients. Many times, there are areas of your teeth and gums that you cannot see on your own, which have underlying health problems. A dental checkup, including a routine cleaning and exam, can reveal these potential problems so preventive treatment can begin immediately. Dental cleanings with your Airmont general dentist, Dr. Lifshitz, are recommended every six months.
There’s no reason to fear a dental checkup with Dr. Lifshitz at his dental practice near Airmont, New York. In fact, coming in for a routine cleaning can save you from tooth pain and discomfort in the future. During a routine checkup, Dr. Lifshitz will check the health of your gums to ensure there is no infection or inflammation. Many times, gum disease can manifest without any patient pain, which is why it is important to evaluate the health of your gums on a routine basis. During this check-up, Airmont general dentist, Dr. Lifshitz will also check your TMJ, look for any dental decay and perform an oral cancer screening. Lastly, he may recommend you receive dental x-rays depending on his findings, as a more complete diagnosis and an interior look at your tooth health may be necessary.
After your teeth and gums have been evaluated and examined, next you’ll have your teeth professionally cleaned by our dental hygienists. They will remove any buildup of plaque and calculus from your teeth and polish them, so you can leave our Airmont dental practice with a clean and shiny smile. If it’s been over six months since the last time you saw your general dentist for a routine cleaning, please call to schedule an appointment with Dr. Lifshitz!
