The Exam

During your exam, the dentist will thoroughly examine your teeth

and gums for signs of tooth decay, gum disease, and other

health problems. The dentist may also want to take X-rays to see

what is happening beneath the surface of your teeth and gums.

These X-rays are will help the dentist discover dental issues not

visible to the naked eye.

Professional Cleanings

Your dental hygienist will begin your cleaning by exploring the

surface of your teeth to determine if you have any cavities and to

examine the quality of existing fillings. The dental hygienist will

then perform a periodontal exam to make sure your gums

adhere tightly to your teeth, and no periodontal disease or bone

loss may be occurring.

Next, your hygienist will carefully clean your teeth with a variety

of tools to remove any hard mineral buildup (tartar) from your

teeth. Cleanings usually aren't painful, but if you have any

anxiety about your dental exam, be sure to let your hygienist

know. If your dentist or hygienist finds tooth decay or gum

disease, they will talk to you about changing your brushing or

flossing habits. In severe cases, they may recommend antibiotics

or other dental treatments. If your teeth and gums appear to be

healthy, your dentist will probably recommend that you continue

your brushing and flossing routine as usual.

The first step toward achieving a beautiful, healthy smile is to schedule an appintment. .
If you need to cancel or reschedule an existing appointment, or if you require immediate attention, please contact our practice as soon as possible. Preferably 24-48 hours notice is appreciated.
