At Tilger Center for Dentistry we offer fast and efficient dental exams and cleanings for our patients. Regular dental exams and cleanings are critical for optimal oral health. Once every six months, it is recommended that a patient sees their dentist to ensure that the gums and teeth are healthy. During a routine exam one of our friendly staff members will examine your teeth and gums for any signs of disease, decay or other specific health problems. In extreme cases, if the examiner sees anything that might require further investigation beneath the surface of the gums and teeth, X-rays may be taken.
