General and Preventive Dentistry
Our patients can expect a full assessment of their oral health at their first dentist appointment. As a general dentist, Dr. Schweifler will complete a full mouth examination to see if a patient needs further treatment. Full mouth digital x-rays, screening for oral cancer and periodontal disease, professional teeth cleaning, and a consultation is included in a new patient’s first appointment.
The dentist office of Dr. Ken Schweifler recommends patients schedule their dentist appointments every six months as part of a regular oral hygiene routine. These visits are important to maintain oral health and for early detection of dental problems. Teeth cleanings are essential to maintaining healthy gums and teeth. Even if you brush and floss regularly, there are places in your mouth where plaque can hide and only a dental hygienist can reach it with special tools. If it is not professionally removed, the bacteria in plaque and tartar can cause tooth decay. Dental cleanings are very important for oral health and will keep your smile beautiful.
Dr. Schweifler also offers personalized smile makeovers for patients who are unhappy with the way their smile looks. Our smile makeover process allows us to give our patients the most natural looking results possible. After a consultation, Dr. Schweifler is able to recommend the cosmetic treatments he feels you need to attain the smile you want. This may involve one or several dental treatments depending on what you want.
