Complete Checkups

Preventive Care

In order to maintain good oral health, it is essential that you receive regular professional care. We recommend that patients visit us at least twice a year for cleaning and polishing. During preventive care appointments, our dental team also performs X-rays to detect the presence of tooth decay. Early detection and treatment of decay can prevent the development of serious problems that require extensive treatment later on.

If you haven’t been to the dentist in a while and feel that you may be in need of a checkup, please contact us today to find out how we can help you along the path to a healthy smile.

Digital X-Rays

X-rays are an important part of your dental care. They allow the dentist to see what isn’t visible with the naked eye. They can be used for both diagnostic and preventive purposes.

We are proud to use Digital Radiography, which uses digital sensors rather than traditional X-ray film. Digital X-rays have several advantages. They are faster, offer clearer image quality with lower radiation and are better for the environment.

The images we take will be instantly stored and ready to view, allowing the dentist to show you exactly what’s going on in your mouth.

Oral Cancer Screening

An oral cancer screening is an essential element of your complete checkup. The goal of this screening is to catch oral cancer early when there is a greater chance for a cure.

Your screening will include a visual and physical exam of your face, lips, tongue, gums, throat and oral tissues. The dentist will look for any bumps, swellings, unusual patches of color, ulcerations or any other abnormalities.

Fluoride Applications

Cavities are caused by acid-producing bacteria that live in plaque built up around your teeth and gums. Good oral hygiene including regular brushing, flossing and regular dental checkups help remove plaque and keep your teeth and mouth healthy. Another essential element of good oral health is fluoride, a mineral that helps prevent cavities and can even repair teeth in the very early stages of decay.

Fluoride can be found in certain foods and in most city water sources, as well as in topical sources like toothpastes and mouthwashes you can purchase in the drug store. In addition to these sources, we recommend in-office, professional, topical fluoride treatments, especially for children and patients who may be at a higher risk of developing cavities. The fluoride we use in our office is stronger than what you can purchase over-the-counter. The application is fast and painless. It will be in the form of a gel, foam or varnish, either painted onto your teeth or placed in a tray. We do recommend you wait at least 30 minutes after the treatment to eat or drink, allowing the fluoride time to absorb.

Our Happy Patients

"I was going to another dentist who didn't quite get it... after switching to Dr. Shlafer I now know how THE BEST DENTIST ever operates! Dr. Shlafer first treated me for a bite-issue that would not go away. Soon after my first visit I was pain-free! Recently I had an area where food often got stuck - after Dr. Shlafer worked his magic I no longer have that issue. I drive all the way from Highland Township to see Dr. Shlafer -- and, it's well worth it. No matter where you live Dr. Shlafer is the ONLY dentist that I'd recommend. Thanks Doc!"

"The staff here is stellar. I've been going here for years now and have never had a bad experience. The women at the desk greet everyone by name, and the doctor remembers everything you tell him about yourself. Everyone here knows what they're doing, a trip here is never a hassle, and they'll always keep your best interest in mind."

"I am a patient of Dr. Shlafer and he has helped me tremendously. I had to have a lot corrective dentistry done and I sought out Dr. Shlafer to take on the challenge. I have told many people that he is a master in his field. He pays attention to the details and is extremely skilled in his craft way beyond normal denistry. I send all my friends and family to him especially if there is something out of the ordinary that needs to be done. He has advanced training and can take on serious issues."
