Life gets busy. Sometimes there just aren’t enough hours in the day. At Dr. Bill Dorfman, DDS – Century City Aesthetic Dentistry, we understand that. But we urge you to think twice before you cancel a checkup. No matter how good your dental hygiene is at home, you need professional attention twice a year.

The exams and cleanings we provide are vital for keeping your smile in tip-top shape!

Your teeth may feel fine, but dental issues can be progressing without you being aware of it.

1. Your Gums May Be Receding
Gum recession doesn’t happen all at once. Gum tissue can move back almost imperceptibly until teeth and bone are at risk.

2. Decay May Be Lurking
When the acids in plaque start drilling into a tooth, we usually don’t feel it until it has passed through the enamel and dentin and hits the nerve. Ouch! By that time, there is a cavity in the tooth. Regular cleanings remove plaque before it can do any damage.

3. Prevent Oral Cancer
About 50,000 men and women will be diagnosed with oral cancer this year.1 We’ll screen for oral cancer during your exam. As with all types of cancer, early diagnosis is vital.

After your entire mouth has been examined, we’ll tell you what is necessary moving forward. Whether that’s flossing more often or discussing major fixes, we will be certain that you get all the information you need to ensure your smile is bright and beautiful. Scheduling twice-yearly exams at Dr. Bill Dorfman, DDS – Century City Aesthetic Dentistry will ensure you have excellent dental hygiene and no major problems.
