Checkups & Cleanings
Most patients should schedule routine checkups and cleanings twice a year. Each appointment allows one of our hygienists to clean your teeth carefully and thoroughly by removing plaque and tartar buildup that may lead to gum disease, tooth decay, or other dental issues. Your regular appointment also allows us to perform a comprehensive examination of your teeth and oral tissues to determine if further dental treatments are needed.
Ultrasonic Deep Cleaning
Plaque and tartar cling to the teeth on a regular basis. Over time, they can build up and the bacteria can find its way underneath the gums, causing plaque to form on the roots of teeth. Scaling and root planing, also known as deep cleaning, is the process used to remove the excess plaque and tartar from the roots. Doing so helps reduce the risk of developing gum disease. We use ultrasonic scaling technology to help break up the plaque and tartar more quickly and comfortably, when compared to traditional deep cleaning treatments.
Oral Cancer Screening
Dental cleanings are just one part of a routine visit. We also employ advanced imaging technology to conduct thorough and comprehensive examinations of the inside of your oral cavity. This helps us see any signs of gum disease, tooth decay, or other issues that may need treatment. We also conduct an oral cancer screening during your visit and check for lesions, sores, or other abnormalities.
