Dental Exams, Cleanings & X-Rays
Avoid cavities, infections and bad breath with your regular dental exam and cleaning! The American Dental Association recommends that a routine dental examination and cleaning are performed every 6 months. Our office performs a comprehensive examination of your teeth and gums and tissues, including an oral cancer screening, and we utilize low radiation digital x-rays to customize a personalized treatment plan. A cleaning is performed with an ultrasonic scaler to remove plaque and calculus from the teeth. Plaque and calculus on the teeth and below the gums can cause several dental problems including tooth decay, gum disease, bone loss, bad breath, and potentially tooth loss. Routine dental cleanings can eliminate plaque and calculus build-up and remove harmful bacteria.
