Research by the American Academy of Periodontics has found links between oral inflammation and many chronic diseases, including Alzheimer's and cardiovascular ailments. Regular exams, like the one you will receive at Elite Smiles, can help prevent these conditions and make sure your mouth is in tip-top shape. X-rays shine light on rooty toothstalks, exposing any cracks, cavities, and misplaced Micro Machines, and the complete teeth cleaning scrubs away all traces of tartar, plaque, and surface staining to prepare your teeth for the complimentary take-home whitening kit. If you go on to become an Elite regular, you'll also be entitled to free whitening gel twice a year with regularly scheduled checkups (up to a $700 value; call for details).
