Hi, I’m Dr. Steve Haywood. If you are one of my existing patients, welcome back. If this is your first visit, I appreciate you stopping by. My quality team and I love taking care of our revered patients. Today’s article is for Baltimore smiles that are overdue for a cleaning and exam.
During dental deep cleanings, our hygienists thoroughly remove the plaque and tartar above and below the gumline. By scaling and planing, they remove areas where bacteria can easily multiply. We are enthusiastic about preventative dentistry to keep your smile healthy and beautiful. If you are due for a cleaning, call us today at 410-453-9399 to schedule.
After your teeth have been cleaned, I perform a thorough examination. I check for overall tooth and gum health, the presence of cavities, gum pocket depth, bite issues, and signs of oral cancer.
Some Timonium people mistakenly believe that they can skip dental visits if they don’t notice anything out of the ordinary. This attitude is risky. Many dental issues advance silently. When the patient experiences pain, much damage has been done. Gum disease, especially, often progresses unnoticed.
If you don’t have dental insurance, ask us about dental financing options. It is far less pricey to prevent dental problems than to treat them after they have become severe. Those who perform regular auto maintenance, for example, understand the wisdom of prevention. Don’t you value your smile far more than your car? Call Dr. Steven W. Haywood today to schedule preventative maintenance for your irreplaceable smile.
