Routine Dental Care
Visiting our office twice yearly for cleanings and examinations is an essential part of your overall healthcare management. These visits allow our experienced hygienists to thoroughly clean your teeth, helping keep your smile strong and beautiful. Equally important, they allow Tarrytown dentist Dr. Wanda Mejia to detect early signs of oral health issues such as decay, infection, and gum disease, enabling her to provide swift treatment before more invasive procedures are required.
In addition to keeping teeth and gums healthy, dental visits are important for systemic health. Some oral health issues are risk factors for heart disease, stroke, respiratory problems, and other potentially deadly problems, which makes spotting small issues and providing prompt treatment best for your overall health as well.
