Over 20,000 Patients Treated in the New Orleans Greater Metro Area
Our experienced dentists provide quality preventive care as part of our commitment to your overall oral health. To help maintain your healthiest and happiest smile, Drs. Andreotta and Garrity recommend that you visit Southern Dental Care twice a year for regular dental exams and teeth cleaning in Marrero, LA.
As part of your regular oral health exam, our registered dental hygienist will perform a professional dental cleaning. This cleaning will remove tartar and plaque from your teeth both above and below your gumline. Even the most careful at-home brushing and flossing methods don’t fully clean the tartar and plaque off your teeth. However, our special dental instruments at Southern Dental Care can get rid of anything that stubbornly clings to your smile. In addition, our complete dental cleaning also includes a thorough teeth polishing to remove any residual stains or plaque.
Your 5-Star Dental Exam at Southern Dental Care
Once your teeth have been cleaned and polished, our expert dentist will perform a thorough dental exam to ensure that you go home free of any underlying dental concerns. Your exam will address the following:
- Digital X-Rays – If necessary, we will take dental x-rays to find decay, tumors, cysts, and bone loss. For children, these x-rays help us diagnose developmental problems that can arise with newly erupting teeth.
- Oral Cancer Screening – We check your face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums for any signs of oral cancer.
- Gum Health Screening – The gums and bone around your teeth will be examined for any signs of periodontal (gum) disease.
- Check for Tooth Decay – We test the surfaces of all your teeth to ensure that no decay or cavities are forming.
- Examine Existing Restorations – If you already have any fillings, crowns, or other dental restorations, we evaluate each of these to confirm that they are still in strong shape.
After you have clean bill of dental health, don’t forget to continue your valuable at-home brushing and flossing regimen!
