Take Advantage of Our $79 Dental Exam and X-rays for New Patients

Maybe it has been a while since your last dental exam and X-rays. Perhaps you meant to do it and kept putting it off for fear of the costs. However, it’s crucial that you make the care of your teeth and your oral health a priority. 

In fact, it’s such an important issue that we’re offering a $79 dental exam and X-rays for new patients. Our providers at Union Square Dental, located in the Flatiron neighborhood of New York City, present this helpful guide about dental exams and X-rays and why you should take advantage of this special offer.

What happens during a dental exam

Dental exams are not the same thing as dental cleanings. You don’t have to be nervous. If you are experiencing dental pain, that’s all the more reason that you should make an appointment for a dental exam.

During a dental exam, we check the overall health of your teeth and gums. We also check if you have any issues that will need to be addressed, such as cavities or receding gum lines, the latter of which is a sign of developing gum disease.

X-rays are also part of a dental exam and they are a useful tool for our team to examine your oral health. X-rays can reveal if you have cavities developing or even cracks in your teeth that aren’t visible to the naked eye. Fortunately, like a dental exam, X-rays are also completely painless.

Why you should get a dental exam

When it comes to your teeth, you can’t just ignore problems and hope that they will go away on their own. In fact, most dental problems tend to get worse if left untreated. Waiting may cause more pain and cost more money to fix.

However, it’s also important to note that not every dental exam will reveal problems. It’s not uncommon for people to have a perfect dental exam. Often, if you need any procedure, it might be something as simple as a small cavity that needs to be filled.

If your teeth do have problems or you’re experiencing dental pain, it’s important to get a dental exam so that you know the cause. In some cases, you could have a dental infection that requires a course of antibiotics. It’s always better to know what’s causing your pain, rather than just silently suffering with it. The solution is often easier and less expensive than you might assume.

Taking care of your teeth with a dental exam and X-rays also has an impact on your future overall health. Untreated gum disease, for example, increases your risk of stroke and heart disease. But gum disease is very treatable and even preventable when caught early enough.

Make a small investment in your future health by taking care of your teeth. Of course, that means regular brushing and flossing. But it also means getting regular dental exams and X-rays. If you would like to take advantage of our $79 dental exam and X-rays, contact our office today or request an appointment online.
