We love discussing dentistry and treatment options with our patients and helping them make informed decisions about their dental care.
What Goes On During Exams and Cleanings?
During the appointment, we’ll give your mouth a full examination. That may mean a complete set of dental X-rays. If you haven’t been to the dentist in a while, a new set of X-rays are a vital tool for identifying underlying problems in the mouth that might otherwise be undetectable with the naked eye.
We’ll also provide a thorough dental cleaning to remove plaque and tartar, and then polish your teeth to keep them shining bright! If you’ve missed some checkups in the past, we may recommend a deep cleaning, which takes place across two or more appointments. They are used to eliminate stubborn buildup that may have accumulated in hard to reach areas, even below the gumline.
We’ll also discuss the findings of our examination and provide recommendations for dental restorations (cavity fillings, crown, etc.) or other concerns we have observed. These treatments are then typically scheduled for a later date.
