Comprehensive Dental Exams
What exactly is a dental checkup? Well it comes in two parts. The first is the dental exam. This allows your dentist to get a good look inside of your mouth to see how your teeth and gums are doing. We will inspect for cavities, plaque, and tarter and let you know what we find. If there are issues present, our dentist will begin discussing treatment options with you so you can take care of your teeth now and avoid potential oral diseases later.
One of the other aspects of our dental exam is our periodontal exam. This is when we check the space between your teeth and gums to make sure there isn’t too much space, which can indicate gum disease. Finally, our dentist will check your tongue, throat, face, head, and neck for any signs of trouble, swelling, or cancer so you can rest easy that you are healthy.
Meticulous Teeth Cleanings
The second part of our dental exam is the actual cleaning of the teeth. This is when our oral hygienist brushes and flosses your teeth to remove plaque. If you have tarter built up on your teeth, then our team will perform a cleaning procedure called scaling. This requires a special dental tool that is able to safely and quickly remove tartar from your teeth so you can avoid gum disease and tooth decay.
After the initial cleaning, our team will then polish your teeth using a high-quality toothpaste that helps remove any surface stains that may be discoloring your teeth. Finally, we will floss your teeth to make sure that all of the areas between your teeth are as clean as they can be. Remember to make sure you ask us about current new patient deals for our dental checkup services.
Anytime Emergency Dental Care
Dental emergencies don’t just happen from 8-5, which is why we’re proud to offer 24/7 emergency dental exams for patients experiencing tooth pain. Come to us if you’ve injured your teeth in an accident or while playing sports, or if you have pain lasting more than one or two days. Most importantly, don’t wait too long. Even a mild toothache can turn into an infection and potentially cause abscess, and emergency rooms cannot provide dental care. If your tooth has fallen out, see us right away and we may be able to restore it. If not, we can recommend other options, such as dental bridges or implants. No matter what time of the day or night, we’ll help you get back to feeling better quickly.
