Cleanings and Exams Are Important If You Are Going To Keep Your Teeth For A Lifetime

Are you scheduling at least two professional checkups and cleanings with a trusted dental team every calendar year? If not, our team at Bartusiak Dental Care of Washington strongly encourages you to do so. Even good brushers and flossers can fall victim to oral health problems that may go unnoticed in their earliest stages, and our dentists can potentially help you avoid serious damage and sunk cost down the road by catching these concerns as early as possible. Don’t hesitate to contact us to schedule dental checkups and teeth cleanings in our Washington, PA, dental office!

Here is what you can expect at your exam:

  • Diagnostic X-rays: Used to determine tooth and root position as well as to detect decay, cysts, tumors or bone loss.
  • Gum disease evaluation: The gums and bone around your teeth will be evaluated for signs of periodontal disease.
  • Exam for tooth decay: All tooth surfaces will be examined using special dental instruments to check for signs of decay.
  • Exam of all previous restorations: Previous fillings, crowns, etc. will be checked to ensure they are still strong and functional.
  • Oral cancer screening: A thorough examination of the face, neck, lips, throat, tongue, and gums will be done to check for any signs of oral cancer.

In addition to an exam, your regular appointments will include a professional cleaning performed by one of our talented dental hygienists. Using special instruments, the hygienist will remove any tartar build-up. Tartar is plaque that has hardened and become firmly attached to the tooth. This can only be removed by a professional using special dental instruments. The hygienist will also remove any plaque and polish your teeth for that squeaky-clean smile!

Dr. Barry and his staff are wonderful. They make you feel comfortable the moment you walk in. During your visit, they are always asking if you need anything and if you’re okay. Every staff member is very friendly. I have had both routine cleaning and dental work done and am extremely pleased with both. I definitely recommend this office for your dental needs.

Fantastic experience. Started seeing Dr. Barry for a dental emergency a few months ago. I tried contacting 10+ dentists in the area, none of them would see me. Crazy, right? I'm very happy those 10+ dentists declined me as a patient. I had an appointment scheduled with Dr. Barry the next day. Professional, knowledgeable, friendly staff. Nothing but good things to say as a new patient. And no, I wasn't provided a gift card to leave this review. I did so on my own free will.
