At the heart of any successful dental practice is quality routine dental care. Maintaining a happy, healthy smile starts with following a proper oral health care routine and maintenance plan.
With over 20 years of general dentistry experience, Annapolis dentist Vernon Sheen, DMD provides patients of all ages with effective oral hygienic care solutions – treating problematic symptoms with exceptional care and comfort.
Routine dental visits play an important role in the long term maintenance of both oral and overall health and well being. The health of your teeth and gums has an impact on your risk for the development of cardiovascular and systemic health issues. During routine visits, Dr. Sheen screens for the early warning signs of decay, periodontal disease, oral cancer, and other oral symptoms of other health concerns. Addressing any health concerns early almost always provides a better long term prognosis and can avoid permanent damage to the teeth and gums. At every visit, Dr. Sheen gives patients his full attention so he can fully understand the patient’s dental needs.
