A healthy mouth free of tooth decay, periodontal disease and other oral health problems is very important for your overall quality of life. To that end, the American Dental Association recommends that you attend a routine dental checkup and cleaning with a dentist every six months.

At Joy Dental, each dental checkup starts with a thorough dental cleaning with one of our highly skilled dental hygienists. They will use professional tools and techniques to remove all traces of hardened tartar from your teeth and polish away minor surface stains. Throughout the cleaning, your hygienist will keep an eye out for signs of tooth decay or periodontal disease.

Dr. Maral Seroon will then perform a thorough dental exam. Should he detect any tooth decay or periodontal disease issues, he will discuss your treatment options. This might also include administering a simple fluoride treatment. If you have any oral hygiene questions or concerns, this is also a good time to ask them.

At the end of the checkup, Dr. Maral Seroon will administer an oral cancer screening. This will involve an examination of your tongue, neck, cheek, and throat to look for any overt signs of oral or pharyngeal cancer.

If you live in the Norristown, Pennsylvania, area and you are due for your next dental checkup, you should call 484-704-7675 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Maral Seroon.
