Good oral hygiene not only affects your dental health but your overall wellness. There are multiple health conditions that may be influenced by your oral health, including diabetes, strokes, and cardiovascular disease. For this reason, it is important to receive routine dental cleanings and exams to ensure your good dental and overall health. Dr. John Gotwalt and his team value the health of their patients and work closely with each and every patient to improve their smiles.
Make sure to visit our office at least twice a year for exams and cleanings. These routine dental visits allow us to check your smile for any dysfunction and recommend the appropriate treatments to help improve your dental health.

What are the Benefits of Dental Exams?
Dental exams are designed to spot any signs of complex dental problems. With a detailed exam, our dentists will be able to
- Find signs of tooth decay
- Diagnose gum disease
- Detect oral cancer
- Identify weak or damaged teeth
- Recommend any necessary dental treatment
- Help you improve your overall dental health
During a routine dental exam, one of our dental hygienists will clean your teeth thoroughly as well as examine your teeth and gums. If necessary, we may take x-rays to gain a more in-depth look at your jaw, bite, and overall oral health. Dr. Gotwalt will review the x-rays and your results with you. He will also discuss any necessary treatment you may need to restore health and balance to your smile.
