Hi, we are David Thompson and Vicki Frey of Thompson & Frey Cosmetic & Family Dentistry. If you are one of our existing patients, welcome back. If this is your first visit, we appreciate you stopping by.
We, along with our friendly and helpful team, love taking care of our esteemed Owensboro, Philpot, Tell City, IN, and Hartford patients.
Today’s article is for 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 270-683-0620 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 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 problems 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.
If you perform regular auto maintenance, you understand the wisdom of prevention. Don’t you value your smile far more than your car? Call Thompson & Frey Cosmetic & Family Dentistry today to schedule preventative maintenance for your irreplaceable smile.
