The American Dental Association advises everyone to have a dental checkup every six months with a qualified dentist like Dr. Rani Ramnath and the staff at Hoke Road Dental. This simple appointment will give the staff a chance to thoroughly clean your teeth and evaluate the health of your gums, teeth and mouth.

If the dentist finds an area of concern, she will talk with you about your treatment options and provide preventive care such as treating any tooth decay or periodontal inflammation. Make sure to let the dentist know about any problems you may have noticed in your mouth.  

If you have been experiencing tooth sensitivity problems, our dentist can develop an effective treatment plan. This often includes administering a fluoride treatment at the end of the dental checkup. Depending on the condition of your tooth enamel, the dentist might recommend the use of prescription fluoride supplements. Increased fluoride can help strengthen your tooth enamel and reduce tooth sensitivity. If necessary, the dentist might also talk with you about possible improvements that you can make to your daily oral hygiene routine. This could include strengthening your brushing and flossing technique or making sure that you are always using oral care products that have earned the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance.

If you live in the Clayton, Ohio area and you have an active oral health concern, you should call 937-832-8000 to plan your visit to Hoke Road Dental.
