Exams and Cleanings in Newark, Ohio

Newark Dental Associates encourages our patients to schedule routine exams and cleanings to prevent serious problems, such as gum disease and oral cancer, from developing and keep your teeth healthy and strong.

During these check-ups, our staff examines teeth and gums for any signs of disease or decay and removes any build-up, including tartar and plaque, which has not been cleaned by regular brushing. Regular cleanings are essential for maintaining optimum oral health.
