Visiting our Patchogue dentist office for periodic teeth cleanings, examinations and oral cancer screenings can help you and your loved ones maintain healthy, beautiful smiles throughout your lives. At the office of Frank J. Granati DDS & Associates, we make checkups a positive experience, keeping you and your family informed and at ease throughout every step in care. Our focus is on the prevention of dental disease as well as diagnosing harmful oral health conditions from their outset, when they are typically the easiest to treat.
Preventive care begins at home with brushing, flossing and limiting your intake of sugary foods and beverages. These steps help protect your teeth against the detrimental effects of plaque, which is a sticky film that gathers continuously in your mouth, harboring harmful bacteria that feed on sugar. To complement your daily oral hygiene regimen, it is also important to visit our Patchogue dentist office at least twice a year for checkups and professional teeth cleanings. While performing checkups on patients of all ages, we thoroughly examine the teeth, gums and their supporting bone structure, to assess one’s overall oral health. With periodic checkups, we can detect any emerging conditions that may adversely affect your oral health and deliver the most straightforward, effective course of treatment. Routine care also includes a professional cleaning, during which we thoroughly remove any residual plaque, tartar or debris from the most difficult to reach areas between your teeth and gums. We’ll also review your oral hygiene habits and make suggestions on how you can brush and floss more effectively at home. For our youngest patients, education is an especially valuable preventive tool; we take the time to teach your children the importance and responsibility of cleaning and caring for their teeth. To keep your child’s smile cavity-free from the start, we can also provide dental sealants and fluoride treatments.
At the office of Frank J. Granati DDS & Associates, we make it easy and stress-free to keep up with your family’s biannual checkups. Our Patchogue dentist office offers convenient evening and weekend hours, and works with many major insurance companies, making the quality care you deserve affordable and accessible.
