While many of our patients initially come to us for Dr. Eskow’s expertise in periodontics and implant dentistry, many choose to stay with us for our comprehensive oral health services. We believe that a beautiful smile is a healthy smile. Our preventive dental care program includes professional cleanings and oral health check-ups at intervals tailored to your individual dental needs.
A routine oral health visit with Dr. Eskow includes:
- Comprehensive oral exam
- Cone beam 3D dental imaging
- Oral cancer screening
- Periodontal exam
- TMJ and occlusal analysis
- Consultation with the dentist
The American Dental Association recommends that children and adults visit the dentist at least every six months for a professional tooth cleaning. Patients who have a history of gum disease or other periodontal problems may need more frequent cleanings (every 3 to 4 months) to effectively prevent and manage gum disease.
Advanced Dental Technology
We utilize the latest technology in our DC area dental offices including the iCAT cone beam imaging system which takes incredible three dimensional scans of the oral cavity and surrounding areas. This allows Dr. Eskow to get a clear picture of what is going on with the teeth, bone and joints as well as the soft tissue structures. The scans are complete in just seconds and the technology is much more comfortable when compared to traditional bite wing x-rays. We utilize this imaging for all of our treatments including preventive care, TMJ treatment, dental implant planning, bone grafting and other procedures.
