Absolutely. Checking in with the doctor on a regular basis—usually every six months—is essential to keeping your smile looking its best. At Phillip T. Fletcher, DDS, we are proud to offer a number of preventive procedures to ensure the health of your mouth and the beauty of your smile. Your smile is just as important to us as it is to you!
Another good reason to visit our Palo Alto, California office is to check for hidden issues in your mouth you may not even realize you had. Bacteria, tartar, and cavities are known to form in the hard-to-reach crevices of your mouth and may only be detected through a professional exam. If left untreated, these cavities and decay can get worse, requiring more extensive treatment, and costing you even more time and money down the road. During your routine exam, the doctor and our team will also check to make sure your fillings or other dental restorations you may have had are in good shape.
Preventing problems before they start is the key to optimal oral health. If it has been more than six months since your last visit, please contact our Palo Alto, California dental office to schedule your routine checkup! See you soon!
