Dental Exams & Cleanings

Dental Exam:

Your journey to optimal oral health begins with a thorough dental exam conducted by your dentist during your initial visit. Subsequent regular check-up exams are vital for maintaining dental wellness. Here’s what you can expect during your examination:

  • Diagnostic X-rays: These essential images enable the detection of decay, tumors, cysts, and bone loss, providing valuable insights into tooth and root positions.
  • Oral Cancer Screening: Comprehensive assessments of the face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, and gums are conducted to detect any potential signs of oral cancer.
  • Gum Disease Evaluation: Thorough examination of the gums and bone surrounding the teeth helps identify any indications of periodontal disease.
  • Tooth Decay Assessment: Every tooth surface is meticulously inspected for decay using specialized dental instruments.
  • Existing Restoration Examination: Current fillings, crowns, and other restorations are checked for integrity and effectiveness.

Professional Dental Cleaning:

Performed by Registered Dental Hygienists, professional dental cleanings, or dental prophylaxis, are integral to maintaining oral health. Your cleaning session comprises:

  • Calculus Removal: Stubborn tartar, or calculus, which forms above and below the gum line, is expertly removed using specialized dental instruments.
  • Plaque Removal: The elimination of plaque, a sticky film comprised of bacteria, food debris, and saliva, helps prevent gum inflammation and periodontal disease.
  • Teeth Polishing: Stains and residual plaque that evade conventional brushing and scaling are meticulously removed, restoring your teeth to their natural luster.
