Maintaining a healthy, beautiful smile can be easy and stress-free when you visit us at our Whitestone dental office twice a year for comprehensive preventive treatment. At Eileen Morrissey DDS we provide professional teeth cleanings, dental exams, oral cancer screening and protective treatments to keep your smile healthy and beautiful. We strive to make every checkup a positive learning experience and help patients of all ages feel at ease throughout their visit.
Tooth decay and gum disease are caused by the buildup of a sticky film called plaque, which gathers continuously in your mouth, harboring harmful bacteria that feed on sugar. By brushing, flossing and making the right nutritional choices, you can take important steps each day towards protecting your teeth and gums. To complement your daily home care routine, it’s also important to visit our Whitestone dental office for periodic checkups, which include a professional teeth cleaning and exam. A teeth cleaning allows us to thoroughly remove plaque and tartar from difficult to reach areas between your teeth and gums. We’ll also offer guidance as to how you can brush and floss most effectively between checkups. For our youngest patients, these visits serve as an educational opportunity, helping your child establish healthy oral hygiene habits that will last a lifetime. We can also provide your child with dental sealants and fluoride treatments, for an added layer of protection against cavities. At every checkup visit patients of all ages receive a comprehensive examination using advanced digital radiography, as needed to assess the overall health of their smiles. Periodic examinations allow for the earliest possible detection and intervention of conditions that may adversely affect your oral health.
At Eileen Morrissey DDS, we focus on a preventive approach to keep your family’s smiles healthy from the start. When you visit our Whitestone dental office for your biannual checkup, you can expect personalized, compassionate care from a highly trained team of professionals.
