Preventative Care

If you have not been to the dentist in a while, we invite you to schedule your preventative care dental checkup with Lee Plaza Dental. At our Plaza family dental care office we treat patients of all ages, focusing on improving the health and appearance of our patients’ smiles.

Not everyone is as excited about dental care. as Dr. Jodie Lee,  D.M.D. and our staff. We understand that visiting the dentist takes a backseat priority for many reasons: busy schedules, lack of insurance, or fear of dentists. If that is you, don't worry, you are not alone. According to the USA Today, 34 percent of Americans do not visit the dentist on an annual basis.

Lee Plaza Dental provides you comfortable preventative care options to help relieve some of the obstacles you may encounter. Not having a dental checkup can place you at risk for a variety of health issues. Brushing and flossing are good for at home daily maintenance, however, a regular dental check-up helps keep your teeth and gums healthy by removing plaque and tartar. You should have a regular dental visit at least every 6 months or as recommended by your Plaza family dental care professional.

Our Preventative Care Services

  • Dental Check-up - At your dental check up the dental professional will check for cavities (this may include X-rays), plaque and tartar on your teeth, and the health of your gums.
  • Cancer or Tissue Screening - Your check-up includes a careful examination of your tongue, throat, face, head, and neck. This is to look for any signs of trouble - swelling, redness, or possible signs of cancer.
  • Teeth Cleaning – Your dentist uses tools to thoroughly clean your teeth and remove tartar that at home brushing and flossing cannot. After the tartar is removed, this is called scaling, your teeth will be polished. This helps to remove any surface stains on your teeth. The final step is flossing. Your dental professional will use floss to make sure the areas between your teeth are clean.
