In our last post, we talked about including regular visits in your New Year’s resolutions.

Regular visits are important for two reasons. One is that regular visits give us a chance to thoroughly clean your teeth and gums, ridding your smile of built up bacteria and plaque (which are the building blocks of serious oral health problems). The second reason is that regular visits also give Dr. Polley a chance to perform a comprehensive oral exam.

During a comprehensive oral exam at our Summerlin dental office, Dr. Polley will check for signs of gum disease, tooth decay, TMJ dysfunction, bruxism, and even oral cancer. By checking closely for each of these, Dr. Polley can help patients support their overall health while helping them to achieve optimal oral health as well.

If you’re ready to schedule your next with Dr. Polley, call our Summerlin office today. We want to help patients from Summerlin, Spring Valley, and the northwest Summerlin area make 2012 a banner year for oral health.
