Routine dental visits are paramount when it comes to oral health care. Here’s why:

  • Preventing costly future concerns: Since oral health problems can go unnoticed until they begin to cause discomfort or complications, spotting them ahead of time can save you trouble and money in the long run! During your visit, our team will look closely for indications of various problems such as acid reflux, oral cancer, diabetes, heart disease and more.
  • Maintaining your smile’s health and beauty: We’ll use professional-grade materials to thoroughly polish your teeth and remove deep staining and plaque buildup that you can’t get rid of yourself at home. This ensures a whiter and healthier smile moving forward!

What to Expect During a Dental Checkup

There are a few different things you can expect to happen during your dental checkup—it’s much more than our team simply checking your mouth for cavities! First, we’ll perform a comprehensive oral examination to search for any underlying concerns that might be hard to detect, including signs of oral cancer. This involves a visual exam of your teeth and gums, as well as taking X-rays to assess the roots of your teeth and the health of your jawbone. We’ll also check the integrity of any dental restorations such as dental crowns or dentures.

Simply put, we’ll check every nook and cranny of your mouth to ensure it’s in tiptop shape! We’ll also walk you through our findings and let you know if there are any present issues you’ll need to have treated.

What to Expect During a Dental Cleaning

Keeping up with your oral hygiene at home is essential when it comes to maintaining a healthy and white smile, but you can’t do it all on your own; even daily brushing and flossing can’t remove all of the plaque and tartar that accumulates in your mouth and puts you at risk for issues like tooth decay and gum disease.

Before we wrap up your visit, we’ll perform a thorough cleaning of your smile to remove any present debris, tartar and plaque. We can utilize special tools that are capable of reaching areas of your mouth that your toothbrush can’t access. We’ll also use professional-grade polishing paste to carefully buff away stains and plaque, resulting in incredibly smooth and shiny teeth that you’ll love showing off!
