For your convenience, our office can provide you with flexible scheduling options and dental financing to accommodate your family’s unique lifestyle and budget needs.

How Often Should I Go To The Dentist?

Every smile is unique, and so are your dental care needs! Some patients, especially those with gum disease, should see a dentist more than others to maintain good oral health and wellness. According to the American Dental Association, you should see your trusted local dentist at least twice a year (every six months) to maintain optimal oral health. Our team will recommend a preventive care schedule that’s right for you and your children!

Your Next Checkup At Dental Town

We hope to see you soon for your next checkup! When you arrive for your next scheduled preventive care visit at your local Chicagoland Dental Town office, here is what you can expect:

Dental Exam

One of our friendly dental assistants will perform a thorough dental examination to assess your overall oral health. As part of our routine exams, we will check your teeth, gums, and other oral tissues for signs of disease, decay, or infection.

Dental Cleaning

A professional cleaning performed by a dental hygienist can help prevent tooth decay and gum disease. Your hygienist will thoroughly clean those hard-to-reach places with scaling tools to remove plaque from your teeth. This will freshen your breath and remove surface-level stains, revealing a brighter, more confident smile.

Digital X-Rays

Our office uses digital X-rays for your safety and convenience. Digital X-rays emit up to 80 percent less radiation than traditional X-rays, making them safe for children and pregnant women.

Oral Cancer Screening

Early detection and treatment are essential to a swift recovery. We check your mouth, lips, tongue, gums, and other tissues for signs of cancerous and precancerous conditions. Common signs and symptoms of oral cancer include oral sores, mouth pain, and a white or red patch on the inside of your mouth.

How Can I Maintain Good Oral Health Between Dental Visits?

While going to the dentist regularly is important for the diagnosis and treatment of dental conditions, prevention is the best treatment of all. Here are some simple steps every patient should follow to keep their teeth healthy between checkups:

  • Brush your teeth twice and floss daily as recommended by your dentist. This will prevent tooth decay, plaque build-up, staining, and other dental problems.
  • Be sure to use fluoride toothpaste to strengthen your enamel. Antibacterial mouth rinses can also help prevent the development of cavities and gum disease.
  • Eat a balanced diet and avoid sugary foods and beverages as much as possible. If you do enjoy a sugary snack, be sure to brush afterward to remove bacteria or acids that can build up in your mouth.

Do You Accept Walk-ins and Emergency Appointments?

Yes, Dental Town welcomes walk-ins! Our team will see you as soon as scheduling permits to provide you with quality care. We also offer emergency appointments to treat injuries, accidents, and other dental conditions. No matter your dental needs, our Chicagoland practice is here to serve!

Do You Accept Insurance?

Dental Town is in-network with many dental insurance providers. Our team also accepts most PPO plans, major credit cards and offers payment plans. For your convenience, we offer affordable financing options with CareCredit.
