Exams, Cleaning, and Digital X-Rays
Taking care of your teeth is important in maintaining your smile and overall health. Everyday scientists are discovering links between tooth/gum disease and chronic illnesses such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Coming for regular check-ups can help to maintain healthy teeth and prevent complications.
At your check-up, we will thoroughly examine your teeth and oral tissues. We provide oral cancer screenings and check for diseases such as dental decay, infection, periodontitis (bone loss), gingivitis (gum inflammation), and failing restorations. We will clean and polish your teeth to remove any plaque or calculus (hardened plaque) that may have formed. We may also take digital x-rays which aid in the detection and diagnosis of oral diseases.
