The Checkup and Cleaning Appointment
A dental checkup is a chance for our team to take detailed digital x-rays and intraoral camera images of the smile from multiple angles, so we can understand the state of your oral health, and also identify any areas of concern. Our team can watch for issues like cavities, dental infection, gum inflammation, or gum disease. We also screen for oral cancer, and identify TMJ disorder and bruxism (teeth grinding). The earlier we diagnose them, the sooner can offer relief and protect your smile.
Our team will also clean your teeth with an ultrasonic scaling device and a manual tool. We remove the harmful layers of plaque and tartar, which could otherwise lead to cavities, gum issues, and even bad breath and teeth stains. Once we remove them all, we polish the teeth for a brighter appearance. This is beneficial for patients of all ages, from kids to adults.
Possible Treatment Options
Our team has a comprehensive array of treatments to help your smile. Using custom oral appliances, we can offer relief from TMJ disorder, bruxism, and sleep apnea. Cosmetic dentistry brightens teeth and addresses esthetic issues with shape or gaps between teeth. Restorative dentistry could treat damaged teeth and also address infection or advanced decay. Oral surgery can remove harmful wisdom teeth, rebuild weakened jaw structure, and even replace missing teeth with advanced dental implants.
