Dental exams are essential to maintaining good oral health. It is recommended that you have an exam at least once a year and preferably every 6 months. During the exam, our team will provide a full examination of the oral cavity and its surroundings and if needed, we may also take digital photographs of teeth or a panoramic image of the head. We will recommend any needed dental treatments to improve your oral health and prevent future dental problems. Thanks to the computer screens in our treatment rooms, you will be able to comfortably view X-rays and photographs from the dental chair to better understand your oral health and dental treatments.
Teeth cleaning is part of oral hygiene and involves the removal of dental plaque from teeth with the intention of preventing cavities (dental caries), gingivitis, and periodontal disease. People routinely clean their own teeth by brushing and interdental cleaning, and dental hygienists can remove hardened deposits (tartar) not removed by routine cleaning. Those with dentures and natural teeth may supplement their cleaning with a denture cleaner.
