A full dental examination performed at our office goes a long way towards helping you maintain your oral health by giving us the opportunity to evaluate the condition of your teeth and other oral structures. The American Dental Association recommends that everyone should have a routine dental examination at least twice a year.
A routine oral care checkup at our office includes the following:
- A full dental examination: As the name suggests, a full dental checkup involves a complete and thorough evaluation of your mouth, teeth, throat, lips and inner cheek tissues. This helps us to detect underlying problems such as gum disease, tooth cracks, bite issues, cavities or any other irregularities that may need attention and treatment.
- A Professional Cleaning: A professional dental cleaning is also known as prophylaxis. It involves a deep cleaning of the mouth using special dental instruments to remove plaque and tartar deposits between the teeth and at the surface of the gums. Professional cleanings leave you with an ultra-clean mouth and fresh breath.
- Digital X-rays (when needed): We make use of digital X-ray technology to help detect any possible issues with your teeth. Digital X-Rays are much better and safer than traditional X-Rays as they emit less radiation and can be viewed immediately on a screen.
- An Oral Cancer Screening (when needed): Oral cancer is a life-threatening disease. Sometimes, we may recommend an oral cancer screening as a part of your dental examination, to help detect and treat the problem at an early stage.
