Regular cleanings and checkups will go a long way towards maintaining a healthy smile for Dr. Mihalos’ Midtown NY dental patients.
It is recommended to do this at least once every 6 months. Many patients may even benefit from getting cleanings every 3 or 4 months due to excessive buildup of tartar and unsightly staining of their teeth.
During these visits, Dr. Mihalos will be able to diagnose any potential disease processes such as tooth decay, gingivitis and periodontal disease. Dr. Mihalos employs the use of the Dexis digital imaging system (digital x-rays) to aide in his diagnoses.
Digital X-rays are beneficial for patients in that there is reduced exposure to radiation as compared to traditional x-ray films. There is also no development time needed for digital x-rays so appointment time is greatly reduced. Dr. Mihalos will also perform an oral cancer screening on all patients regardless of age or medical history.
Also during these visits, a patient may consult with Dr. Mihalos regarding any general and cosmetic dental concerns they may have. To schedule your Midtown Manhattan dental exam and cleaning, contact our office today at (212)355-1100.
