Cleanings and Checkups

If you want to attain and maintain optimal oral health, routine dental checkups and cleanings are non-negotiable. In fact, even the most avid brushers need to come in for a professional dental cleaning at least twice a year. When it comes to preventive care at Cardinal Dental, we stop at nothing less than the best. By regularly evaluating your teeth and gums we can catch dental problems early and save you from worsening pain or more costly treatments. Dr. Blalock leads a team of caring dental professionals who work hard to make your routine visits a comfortable and rewarding experience.

We also offer valued convenience when it comes to your appointment times, your payments and even your childcare. When visiting our St. Peters office, you will find yourself surrounded by modern patient amenities, cutting-edge dental technology and a staff who is dedicated to tailoring our services just for you.

Comprehensive Dental Exams

Your oral health involves more than just the visible appearance of your teeth. Therefore, we perform a comprehensive exam during each routine dental visit. This includes measuring your gum health, taking digital x-rays, checking your bite and screening for oral cancer. At Cardinal Dental, we have the skillset and experience to be able to address all types of dental problems if they arise, from restorative dentistry to TMJ therapy.

A primary component of your routine checkup is a professional cleaning. This allows one of our hygienists to remove hardened plaque and stubborn stains. Once plaque hardens into tartar, only a dentist can effectively remove this harmful substance before it causes decay, gum disease or other oral health issues. We do a meticulous job cleaning your teeth so that you can leave refreshed and confident in your smile.
