Regardless of your age, routine dental cleanings and checkups as part of our general dentistry treatments are vital to your oral health. They are the best way to detect dental problems at their earliest stages so that you can avoid the time, pain and money of more invasive treatments. At Riverheart Family Dentistry, we see most patients twice a year for dental cleanings and checkups. Dr. Schwarz is an experienced and skilled dentist who is equipped to address the changing oral health needs of patients through each stage of life.
It is our mission to provide superior, patient-centered dental care in an environment that feels like home. Therefore, your routine dental checkup will be a positive and rewarding experience, and never something you dread. Helping patients achieve their most confident smile is what we do best. At Riverheart Family Dentistry, this starts with top quality preventative care.
Comprehensive Dental Exams
During your dental exam, we address all aspects of your oral health. Not only do our hygienists remove hardened plaque and stains that can only be addressed with a professional cleaning, but they also take special notice of your gum health and problem areas such as enamel erosion, tooth decay or gum disease. Our comprehensive dental exams include the following:
- A visual exam of your mouth, face, jaw and neck
- Digital diagnostics, including x-rays or laser cavity detection
- Gum health monitoring, or gingival pocket exam
- Professional cleaning and polishing of your teeth
- Oral cancer screening
- Comprehensive data capture in an electronic dental record
Our practice proudly adopts the latest technique and technology in modern dentistry. This enables us to provide dental care that is more comfortable, faster and safer than ever before. We utilize this state-of-the-art technology in our preventative services as well as our restorative and cosmetic procedures. Your smile deserves the very best and we are proud to offer that to families in O'Fallon.
If your dental checkup revealed an area of concern, you can trust that Dr. Schwarz is equipped to handle it. Riverheart Family Dentistry provides complete dental care with services ranging from crowns and root canals to extractions and dental implants. Regardless of the type of dental work you may need, we create smiles that retain both function and aesthetics for years to come.
