Comprehensive Dental Exams
On your first visit, after a thorough cleaning, we perform a detailed exam to gauge the wellness of your teeth. Our practice is equipped with intraoral cameras, small pen-sized devices that allow us a clear view of every area of your mouth.
We also take images of your teeth using our panoramic x-ray machine. This technology captures a comprehensive view of the mouth quickly and efficiently, and also uses a lower dose of radiation than traditional dental x-rays. Combining these two techniques gives us the best indication of your dental health, so that we can spot and address potential problems before they become severe.
Thorough Dental Cleanings for a Fresh, Healthy Mouth
Regular cleanings are just as essential as daily brushing and flossing. Even the most thorough toothbrush can miss plaque - especially around the gum line - which then hardens into tartar. This can lead to gum disease and increase the likelihood of cavities and dental caries.
Professional cleanings remove plaque and tartar buildup, reaching beneath the gums where normal brushing can’t. It can also lift mild surface stains from your teeth. A good cleaning will leave your mouth feeling refreshed and healthier.
Patient Education for Effective Dental Care
The best dental care is born of a partnership between the dental professional and the patient. While we work to keep your teeth clean and healthy at every visit, we also provide you with the tools and education you need to do your part at home. This includes discussion of brushing techniques, good hygiene habits, diet and lifestyle. We also answer any questions you may have in a caring and attentive manner.
With these combined efforts, we can minimize the risk of expensive dental problems, and keep your teeth in optimal health for years to come.
