Regular checkups provide our team with the opportunity to check your mouth for any serious issues and to provide timely treatment, if necessary. We recommend that all of our patients visit us at least twice a year for this purpose. When you come in for a regular checkup, you will receive a full examination, a professional cleaning from an expert hygienist, an oral cancer screening, and when necessary, digital X-rays.
While you are here, the dentist will provide a thorough exam of your teeth, gums and all oral structures. Some of the issues we may find include tooth decay, cavities and gum disease. If we find anything, we will recommend appropriate treatment.
A professional cleaning is a deep cleanse to remove harmful bacteria and plaque. We use specialized tools to scrape away any buildups on the surface of the teeth. Next, the teeth are thoroughly cleaned, polished and flossed.
Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer is a serious condition that is best treated when discovered early. During every checkup, we will examine the lips, tongue, face, gums, throat and for early signs of oral cancer.
Digital X-rays are highly effective in viewing the areas of a patient’s mouth that cannot be seen with the naked eye. Issues that can be found using digital X-rays include tooth decay, cavities, jawbone deterioration and oral cancer.
