If caught early enough, problems such as cavities, gum disease, and oral cancer can be treated or prevented. The American Dental Association recommends having a checkup every six months.

Each dental cleaning and exam at Molinare Dental Group’s dental clinic starts with one of our dental hygienists performing a thorough dental cleaning. This will remove the plaque and tartar that your brush did not reach. The hygienist may also polish your teeth to remove surface stains .

Once this is done Dr. Jon Molinare will conduct a thorough exam during which time he will check for cavities, gum disease, oral cancer, and other problems. If your dentist has any concerns, he will suggest treatment or prevention options with you. A routine exam is needed to detect and treat any small problems before they become big (and expensive) ones.

Regular dental appointments, combined with a sound oral hygiene routine will go a long way to making sure that your smile stays healthy and strong for years to come.

If you live in Cedar Knolls, New Jersey, and you have an oral health concern, you should call 973-993-1979 to schedule a cleaning and exam at Molinare Dental Group.
