Oral Examinations

Regular dental exams are essential for maintaining good oral health. They provide an opportunity to identify any issues and create a plan for treatment.

Your dentist will thoroughly examine your teeth, gums, jaw, and bite to ensure that everything is healthy. This may include taking X-rays and conducting an oral cancer screening to detect any potential problems early on. By catching these issues early, you can avoid more serious problems down the line.

Don't neglect your dental health - schedule regular exams with your dentist today! 

Oral Cancer Screening

Oral cancer can affect any part of the mouth or surrounding tissues. During your exam, your dentist will check the face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums for any signs of oral cancer which are difficult to detect with the naked eye. 

Oral Health Care at Home

To keep your smile healthy between dental appointments, be sure to brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes each time, and floss at least once a day. 

Hygiene Cleaning

Before or after your exam, your dental hygienist will perform a deep cleaning of your teeth and gums to prevent and treat disease.

To begin, they will use a scaler to remove any tartar and plaque build-up. Next they will use a polisher and coarse toothpaste to remove any leftover stains or plaque, followed by a thorough flossing of your teeth and gums.

It is important to schedule regular dental cleanings every six months to maintain good oral health and prevent future dental problems. Remember, a healthy smile starts with proper dental care!

Fluoride Treatment

If you or your child has a high risk of tooth decay, your dentist may also recommend a fluoride treatment. Fluoride is a natural mineral that can help to rebuild the minerals in your tooth enamel to prevent or reverse tooth decay.
