Dr. Mark McClure's St. Louis Dental practice believes along with the American Dental Association's recommendation to visit your Dental Hygienist every six months. Regular dental visits are essential for the maintenance of healthy teeth and gums. Besides keeping a beautiful smile we know that poor dental hygiene is linked to heart disease, diabetes, and other health issues. Our goal is to keep you healthy. Your Dental Hygienist will also take the time to instruct you on how to keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy between visits.
What Goes On During Your Visit
Our dental hygienists work closely with Dr. McClure to assure you have excellent oral care.
Checking your teeth for tooth decay is only one part of a thorough dental examination. When x-rays are needed our digital x-ray system remits the lowest radiation levels around. Our dental hygienists will address any health concerns you have during your checkup and evaluate the health of your gums and bone level. During the exam the dental hygienist will examine your mouth for any indications of oral cancer, diabetes or vitamin deficiencies.
If problems are detected we will advise you of the best plan of action. Investing in your oral health care is an investment in your overall health.
