At Georgetown Family Dental, our expert dentist is Dr. Roy D. Maynard, Jr. Dr. Maynard has been providing exemplary dental care to our patients for nearly a decade. At our dental practice, we emphasize the importance of preventive dental care. During an oral exam, our dentist will perform many very important oral health checks. X-rays will be taken to make sure that there are no cavities developing between the teeth, and no problems developing below the gum line. Our dentist will then physically examine your teeth to make sure there are no other dental issues are developing, including problems resulting from teeth grinding or TMJ. These problems cannot only damage your teeth, but they can hurt your overall bite and cause pain and jaw problems. Additionally, during an oral exam, our dentist will thoroughly screen your mouth for any signs of oral cancer. He will also check your bite to make sure it is not shifting. Additionally, he will check your gums to make sure they are healthy. When you come in for periodic dental exams you can be sure that you are getting the very best Savannah dental care possible.
If during the oral exam our dentist determines that you are developing gingivitis, a precursor to gum disease, he may recommend that you have several regular dental cleanings over the coming months to help your gums return to good health. If our dentist sees that you have mild to moderate gum disease, with deep pockets between your teeth and gums, he may recommend that you have a periodontal scaling and root planing treatment. This type of periodontal care is available at our office. Our patients remain perfectly comfortable during this procedure, which will, be able to help your gums return to good health. If you want to make sure that you have excellent oral health, including healthy gums and teeth, you will want to come to our practice for top-notch Savannah dental care.
