Preventative check-ups keep you ‘in the know’ about your dental health and are suggested for most patients twice a year. During your general dentistry check-ups, our Dental Hygienists provide a thorough teeth cleaning and assist the Dentist in identifying any possible issues you may be experiencing. If X-Rays are suggested or needed, the Hygienist providing care will collect the digital X-Rays using our state-of-the-art technology, which emits much less radiation than traditional X-Ray machines. After the Dentist reviews the X-Rays and consults with the Hygienist, an oral cancer screening, mouth, and teeth check is completed by the Dentist. At this time, any needed consultation about your oral health will be discussed.
During your dental cleaning and check-up we check for oral cancers, signs of abnormal wear on tooth enamel, gingivitis and gum disease, cavities or cracks in teeth, changes in your oral health since the last visit, and we are open for consultation about specialty services, oral health care techniques, and also general or unique questions.
Having a check-up and cleaning every 6 months is the best way you can stay ‘in the know’ about your oral health and keep a healthy mouth and smile.
