General & Family Dentistry
Only the most modern of dental treatments are available at East Haddam Dental Associates as we are committed to giving patients beautiful smiles they can be proud of for years to come. However, we strongly believe that the best foundation for a stunning smile is a healthy mouth, which is why we take general dentistry very seriously. Drs. Pear, Stofko and Goldman are dedicated to ensuring that all patients receive the most thorough care available during their twice-yearly dental examination and cleaning.
The first part of a general dental visit is a full mouth X-ray which allows the doctors at East Haddam Dental to examine the health of your teeth and gums. During your examination, a small pick and mirror will be used to examine each tooth for cavities and plaque. You will also undergo a gum examination where your gums will be gently probed to detect any signs of gum disease. The final step in your general dental visit at East Haddam Dental Associates is a head and neck examination, which allows Dr. Pear and associates to inspect for any potential issues with glands or joints, such as TMJ disorder. After your thorough examination, Dr. Pear Stofko or Goldman will sit down with you to discuss the results of the exam and plan any necessary repairs or treatments.
The second part of your bi-annual check-up at East Haddam Dental Associates consists of a complete professional dental cleaning conducted by one of our gentle and caring dental hygienists. While it is recommended for adults to brush their teeth three times a day and floss once daily, the reality is that most people only brush twice daily and floss rarely. Even the most hygiene-dedicated patients who brush and floss regularly will not ever achieve the same results as that of a deep cleaning from one of our trained dental hygienists. For the best dental health and cavity prevention, it is important to have your teeth professionally cleaned, polished, and treated with fluoride twice a year.
