Dental Exams and Cleaning
We perform dental exams and cleanings at Short Hills Smiles to prevent and diagnose any problems you may have or might have in the future.
Your dental cleaning starts with removing any plaque or calculus from your teeth then flossing, cleansing, fluoride treatments and polishing.
We may also take a few x-rays of your teeth and jaw in order to examine the health of your mouth. Dr. Barker will be able to better understand what is going on in your oral cavity by viewing these x-rays and may suggest any treatments or services needed to improve your dental health.
We have a modern sterilization system that surpasses OSHA requirements. The source of water for our dental units is distilled water (bottled water) which removes any chances for contamination from regular tap water such as that used in most dental offices.
We recommend a visit to our dental practice in Short Hills, NJ at least once every six months in order to get a checkup and cleaning. If you have an emergency dental problem, you can call us right away and set up a quick appointment.
