Address Oral Health Problems With Regular Dental Checkups

You deserve top-notch care during cleanings and exams. At our practice, your dental team uses advanced equipment to make these visits quick and comfortable. Digital X-rays give us a clear picture of your entire mouth while exposing you to less radiation. Your dentist can even show you what we see with our intraoral cameras. Laser equipment is also used for a range of treatments, such as bacterial reduction and cold sore treatment.

If it’s your first appointment with us, you may spend a bit longer with our team. We like to get to know our patients personally. Your dentist will review your oral health history, discuss any existing issues, and review any goals you have for your smile.

Overall, here is what you can expect from your checkup:

  • Dental Exam – Your dental team will examine your mouth for signs of gum disease, tooth decay, and even oral cancer. You may need to have digital X-rays taken, especially if it’s your first visit with us. Depending on your needs, your dentist will also use the advanced VELscope to spot underlying issues.
  • Dental Cleaning – Your hygienist will perform a thorough cleaning of your teeth. We reach all the places you miss at home, making sure your smile looks spotless. They will also polish your teeth so they look smooth and shiny afterward.
  • Preventive Solutions – You may need fluoride treatments or dental sealants to give your smile an extra layer of protection. Your dentist can also discuss solutions if you are experiencing TMJ problems or sleep apnea issues.

By the end of your appointment, you will not only have a healthy smile, but actionable next steps to keep it that way. Education is a big part of our approach to care. Your dental team wants you to maintain good oral health for life!
