Cleaning and checkups

 

Dental Exam

 

A comprehensive dental exam will be performed by your dentist at your initial dental visit.  At regular check-up exams, your dentist will include the following:

  • Examination of diagnostic x-rays : Essential for detection of decay, tumors, cysts, and bone loss.  X-rays also help determine tooth and root positions.

  • Gum disease evaluation: Check the gums and bone around the teeth for any signs of periodontal disease.

  • Examination of tooth decay: All tooth surfaces will be checked for decay with special dental instruments.

  • Examination of existing restorations: Check current fillings, crowns, etc.

 

 

 

 

Professional Dental Cleaning

 

Your cleaning appointment will include a dental exam and the following:

 

  • Removal of Calculus (tartar): Calculus is hardened plaque that has been left on the tooth for some time and is now firmly attached to the tooth surface. 

  • Removal of plaque: Plaque is a sticky, almost invisible film that forms on the teeth.  It is a growing colony of living bacteria, food debris, and saliva.

  • Teeth polishing: Remove stain and plaque that is not otherwise removed during tooth brushing and scaling.
