A dental examination is an important part of preventative health care and should be completed every six months along with a cleaning and x-rays. During this examination, Dr. Franzese will be identifying patient risks for gum inflammation, cavities, tooth decay or bone loss. A patient can expect a discussion regarding their diet and oral hygiene in the event that there are some concern areas regarding their oral health. In addition to the dental exam and x-rays, Advanced Dental can also provide free digital photos for patients who are interested in a cosmetic evaluation. New patients are also encouraged to get a cleaning along with their exam and x-ray to remove plaque and bacteria that may have accumulated along the gumline.
