First, six-month dental exams help keep your smile bright. During your appointment, your teeth will be your teeth will be cleaned to remove plaque and polish, which can remove surface stains and brighten your smile.

In addition, a six-month dental exam allows Dr. Merguerian to recognize potential signs of oral health issues like cavities or gum disease early and provide you with the care you need to prevent further complications. This saves you time and money, since you can usually avoid treatments like fillings and periodontal cleanings if you get routine exams and maintain proper oral health habits at home.

Signs of diabetes, for example, can sometimes be recognized during a routine dental exam, and Dr. Merguerian always performs oral cancer screenings as part of routine oral exams to provide you with peace of mind.


Updated Pre-Medication Policy

Recent guidelines by the American Heart Association (AHA) and the American Dental Association Council have changed the recommendations for pre-medication before dental procedures. Exceptions may apply if the patient has a history of complications and a recommendation from their orthopedic surgeon.

Pre-medication is no longer recommended for patients with:

  • Prosthetic joints
  • Mitral valves prolapse
  • Rheumatic heart disease
  • Bicuspid valve disease
  • Calcified aortic stent
  • Congenital heart disease

From this point forward, if affected patients feel like they need pre-medication, they require a written clearance from their doctor.
