Routine dental examinations are essential in keeping your teeth and gums healthy. Our dentists will thoroughly inspect your teeth, gums, mouth and jaw during these visits to check for signs of decay or damage.
We may use a metal probe with an angled mirror to look behind and between your teeth for any warning signs of cavities. We will also check for any issues with the gums, such as swelling, redness, or sores. As for your jaw, our dentists will make sure your jaw is aligned correctly when you bite down and there is no clicking from the joints.
Detecting problems early makes treatment more effective, simpler, and less costly. We can also prevent issues from developing in the first place because we will be able to spot problems that have no apparent symptoms.
If any dental issues are detected, our dentists will devise an effective treatment plan to restore your smile's function and appearance.
Scale and Polish
Good oral health comes down to being consistent with your dental hygiene. While you should always take proper care of your dental hygiene at home, visiting your dentist for regular professional cleans will give you a healthier and brighter smile.
A professional clean will remove any build-up on the teeth and gums. This build-up, also known as plaque or tartar, results from poor dental hygiene.
During the dental hygiene visit, our dentists will remove the build-up using the scale and polish method to ensure that bacteria is removed from the gums and between the teeth. To finish, we will use fluoride treatment to help strengthen the tooth's enamel and prevent tooth decay or disease.
