The field of general dentistry covers many dental services. As a general dentist, Dr. Skopp can help you maintain the appearance of your teeth and your overall oral health. In addition, he is also skilled in all aspects of diagnosing, preventing, and treating common mouth, teeth, and gum diseases. Dr. Skopp works to protect your teeth and ensure your smile is as bright as possible.
The American Dental Association recommends a full dental exam and check-up every six months in order to properly diagnose and treat any potential problems.
If you’re in need of a check-up, even if you don’t think you have any problems, let Dr. Skopp and his friendly, professional staff perform a complete and thorough dental exam to ensure your teeth are in healthy, working order.
Most dental exams take approximately thirty to sixty minutes to complete and are entirely painless. Dr. Skopp and his professional dental team will simply take a look at your teeth and gums to ensure you don’t have any issues, such as cavities, or gum disease. Most exams also include taking x-rays of your mouth in order for Dr. Skopp to examine your root cavities, jaw bone, and surrounding areas for any problems.
If you suffer from pain in your mouth or jaw, we have full x-ray facilities available at our office, where Dr. Skopp can examine the underlying structures of your teeth. As a full service general dentist, Dr. Skopp is here to help to ensure your teeth are properly cared for.
Along with your bi-annual check-ups, it’s also highly recommended that you have your teeth cleaned at the same time. After taking x-rays of your mouth, one of our highly skilled dental hygienists will then work to gently remove the plague and tartar build-up from your teeth.
Even with the best oral hygiene, tartar deposits will still build up. This is why it’s incredibly important that you undergo routine cleanings to keep your teeth in the best possible shape. Along with removing the tartar and plaque from your teeth, the hygienist may also polish or scale the teeth, before applying special chemicals to protect the tooth enamel.
Having your teeth cleaned is relatively painless and is definitely one of the most important aspects to keeping your teeth and mouth happy and healthy.
Regardless of whether you are looking for a simple check-up, x-rays, or are overdue cleaning, let Dr. Skopp and his expert staff give your mouth the care and attention it deserves.
