Are you looking for a dentist who can provide you and your family with top-notch dental care? Patients who want the very highest level of dental care and treatment come to see our expert dentist at our dental practice, Dr. Vidya Reddy. Dr. Vidya Reddy is able to provide our patients with a full range of dental services for the entire family. When you are looking for a leading Carlisle dentist, you can do no better than to come in to see our dentist at our highly-regarded dental practice.
Getting dental checkups by our Carlisle dentist is not only a smart thing to do for your dental health – it is also a very cost-effective thing to do. This is because when it comes to dental care an ounce of prevention is truly worth a pound of cure. For example, it is much more cost-effective to come in for a dental exam and be treated for a small cavity, rather than putting off having a dental exam and ending up needing root canal treatment to save your tooth. This is just one way in which dental exams can help save your dental health as well as your hard-earned money.
During a dental checkup our Carlisle dentist will thoroughly examine the health of your teeth, gums and mouth. Initially, a full set of x-rays will most likely be taken to make sure that you do not have any cavities developing between teeth or have any problems developing below the gum line. Our dentist will then thoroughly examine your teeth to make sure that no other problems are developing. Your teeth will be checked for any cracks or breaks in existing fillings. Your mouth will be fully reviewed for any signs of oral cancer. The health of your gums will be fully evaluated, and your bite will be reviewed to make sure it is not developing any problems resulting from teeth grinding or TMJ. If it is determined that you have gingivitis, a precursor to gum disease, it will most likely be recommended that you have several dental cleanings over the coming few months to make sure that your gums return to good health. If you have already developed gum disease and have deep pockets between your teeth and gums you will most likely need to have a scaling and root planing treatment. This treatment is like a deep cleaning for the gums which will remove all plaque, bacteria, tartar, and food debris from the deep pockets. This will allow your gums to begin to heal.
