Dental Exam

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

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

~Oral cancer screening: Check the face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues and gums for any signs of oral cancer.

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

~Examination of tooth decay: Check all tooth surfaces for decay with special dental instruments and lasers.

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

Professional Dental Cleaning

Professional dental cleanings (dental prophylaxis) are usually performed by registered dental hygienists.  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 sometime and is now firmly attached to the tooth’s surface.  Calculus forms above and below the gum line and can only be removed with special dental instruments.

~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. The bacteria produce toxins (poisons) that inflame the gums. This inflammation is the start of periodontal disease!

~Teeth polishing: Removes stains and plaque that are not removed during regular brushing and scaling.
