Your First Dental Visit
Typically, dental visits include:
- Dental Cleanings
- Dental X-rays
- Oral Cancer Screenings
Our dental hygienists provide detailed dental cleanings to remove plaque and tartar from the teeth and gums. Plaque is a sticky film of bacteria that, when hardened, becomes tartar. Removing bacteria from the teeth and gums helps prevent tooth decay and gum disease.
For a deep clean, we can also offer patients scaling and root planing. These treatments are used in tandem to prevent gum disease. Scaling removes plaque and tartar from the gum line and beneath the gums. Root planing removes bacteria from the tooth roots and also smooths down the tooth roots. This helps reattach the tooth roots to the gums.
With digital x-rays, we can easily diagnose and treat our patients. Modern x-rays can create clear images of the teeth and gums. Although we may not take x-rays at every routine visit, we may require them for extractions, orthodontics, and other oral health treatments.
We can keep track of any new developments to ensure our patients are in good dental health. Oral cancer screenings are another important aspect of routine appointments. During these screenings, one of our dentists will examine the mouth for any abnormalities. Red or white lesions, chronic mouth sores, and lumps beneath the soft tissue of the mouth can be common indicators of oral cancer.
