Did you know that tooth decay and gum disease are the most common dental conditions, yet are nearly entirely preventable with a proper oral healthcare routine? The American Dental Association, in which Dr. Sharkey maintains active membership, recommends visiting your dentist every six months, as well as brushing and flossing your teeth at least two times a day. At our Ellicott City dental office we perform a comprehensive smile examination and thorough professional teeth cleaning as part of every checkup visit. Our exam allows us to assess every aspect of your oral health, including your teeth, gums, jaw as well as the head and neck area. Performing a clinical inspection aided by diagnostic films as needed, we’ll check for any conditions, which may be harmful to your oral health or overall well being. Our dentist will provide important instruction in the best methods of brushing and flossing, nutritional guidance, and guidance as to which habits may be harmful to your dental health. We will also conduct a professional teeth cleaning to remove dental plaque buildup that may have been missed by your toothbrush and floss.
