Dentistry is not only about the restoration of one’s oral health to its optimal state but also about prevention and maintenance. Maintaining good oral hygiene is essential for an attractive smile and good physical health. Regular dental examinations and professional teeth cleanings can help in the prevention of dental issues and other health problems. The American Dental Association recommends that everyone should see their dentist for checkups and cleanings at least every six months.
Our office provides comprehensive dental examinations in order to evaluate the condition of your teeth and gums and provide you with effective treatment options when necessary. Our regular dental checkups include the following:
A thorough examination of your oral cavity: We conduct a comprehensive checkup of your teeth, mouth and gums to check for any problems related to your dental health.
Digital X-rays: When necessary, X-rays help us take a deeper look at your mouth to detect any underlying problems that cannot be seen with the naked eye. We use digital X-rays that emit much less radiation than traditional X-rays.
A Professional Dental Cleaning: A deep dental cleaning performed at our office will help to remove plaque, tartar, food particles and harmful bacteria in the areas of the mouth where your brush and floss cannot reach. Cleanings help in the prevention of tooth decay, gum disease and bad breath.
Oral cancer screening: We conduct a comprehensive oral cancer screening as a part of our regular oral care exam to rule out the possibility of its occurrence and to help ensure timely treatment in case any abnormalities are noticed.
Fluoride Applications (if needed): A professional fluoride application can help strengthen the enamel and reverse early signs of decay.
