Protect Your Smile With Routine Exams

Tooth decay and dental diseases can sneak up on us. Routine oral exams at our clinic, ideally twice a year, can help catch and treat these issues before they escalate into more serious problems.

During your dental exam, your dentist will check your teeth for any signs of decay or disease. They may also take X-rays to detect issues not visible to the naked eye. This allows for early detection and prevention of cavities and other oral health issues, such as gum disease. 

Oral Cancer Screening

During your oral exam, your dentist will examine your mouth, lips, tongue, cheeks and throat to identify any potential signs of oral cancer, such as unusual lumps or sores. Early detection of oral cancer can increase the chances of a successful treatment, making regular screenings during oral exams crucial.

Oral Health Care at Home

To keep your smile healthy between dental exams, be sure to brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes each time and floss at least once a day.

Dental Hygiene Cleanings

The dental hygienist will thoroughly clean your teeth and gums to remove plaque and tartar. This helps prevent cavities, gum disease and other oral health issues.

First, they will use a scaler to remove tartar and plaque buildup. Next, they will use a polisher and coarse toothpaste to remove any leftover stains or plaque. This is followed by flossing your teeth and gums to complete the cleaning process.

Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride treatment can benefit anyone prone to tooth decay, as it strengthens tooth enamel and prevents cavities. Regular fluoride treatments can help maintain oral health and reduce the need for more extensive dental work in the future by providing an extra layer of protection against harmful bacteria and acids.
