Scheduling a cleaning twice a year can help keep your teeth and gums free of bacterial plaque and tartar. Without regular cleanings, you are at an increased risk of developing cavities, periodontitis (gum disease), and other dental health concerns. Regular professional cleanings can also help keep your enamel (the hard surfaces of your teeth) bright and your breath fresh.
During your visit, a member of our dental team will perform a complete examination of your mouth, teeth, tongue, and gums. This will allow us to check for signs of decay, damage, infection, and other issues. Early diagnosis helps our dentists prescribe the appropriate treatment and get your oral health back on track. Following your exam, we will provide an update of your dental health and make any recommendations as needed to keep your smile healthy.
Digital X-rays are an important diagnostic tool that allows us to assess the health of your teeth, tooth roots, and jawbone beneath the surface of your gums. Unlike traditional film X-rays, digital X-rays emit up to 90 percent less radiation. This makes them safe for children and pregnant women.
Early detection of cancerous and precancerous conditions is critical to swift and efficient treatment. During your visit, we will perform an oral cancer screening to check for signs of cancer and give you a complete understanding of your overall oral health.
