Every six months, Dr. Pape and the Isle Smile staff recommend that you and your family schedule a check up in Key West, Florida. This appointment may include a professional teeth cleaning, fluoride, a dental exam, and X-rays. Our hygienist will remove plaque and tartar gently before flossing and polishing your teeth. Fluoride is a mineral that helps protect your teeth from decay by strengthening your tooth enamel. Our dentists will then examine all of your teeth and gums for signs of decay, gingivitis, and other dental problems. This exam includes an oral cancer screening. Sometimes, our dentists will decide to take X-rays to get a closer, more thorough look at your smile. If any issues are found, our dentists will recommend one or more dental treatments to remedy them. Our professional staff will make sure you understand your treatment options so you can make an informed decision. Periodic dental check-ups are extremely important for your overall health and well-being.
We stress the importance of contacting our office as soon as possible if you experience any dental pain or any other type of dental emergency because we are available 24/7. We encourage you to contact Isle Smile today to learn more and to schedule your next appointment.
