Dental Exam & Cleaning

The greatest wealth is health

Is your smile the healthiest it can be?

You may not be aware of any underlying problems with your oral health until you show symptoms of advanced stages of trauma, which would already have caused a significant amount of damage. Dental exams and evaluations are an essential part of keeping your smile at its best. Just half an hour a few times a year could be the difference between maintaining teeth and needing serious restorative work.

Dental Exam & Cleaning

Overview

What To Expect

During a dental exam, you can expect to have your medical history reviewed, your blood pressure recorded, teeth cleaned, and your teeth checked for cavities and gum disease. To ensure you’re receiving the best in dental care, a dental exam may require dental radiographs (x-ray film) or other diagnostic procedures, such as oral cancer screening. Additionally, your diet and oral hygiene habits will be reviewed to help us further understand your needs.

Treatments

Salivary Diagnostics

Scientific evidence indicates normal salivary flow rate and its buffering capacity  helps protect against caries and decay, most commonly known as holes in your teeth. Saliva is the most easily available and obtainable body fluid and its pH measurement may be used as a quick chairside test to determine the diagnostics of non-infectious systemic and oral conditions.

Fluoride Treatments

We provide fluoride treatments after the completion of your professional teeth clean, which then helps to prevent caries and repair teeth. Our fluoride treatments are especially recommended for patients experiencing dry mouth (xerostomia), and patients who may be at a higher risk of developing caries.

Dental visits

How Often Should I Visit?

The American Dental Association has recommended having a professional dental clean at least twice a year; however, based on the evidence which connects oral cavities to some systemic disorders such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and rheumatoid arthritis, we suggest you visit your dentist every three to four months.

Goal

The main focus of our preventive therapy is teaching you about oral health and aspects like plaque – the film-like coating which forms on your teeth, gums and tongue, and is mainly responsible for bad morning breath. We also aim to improve your ability to perform the most effective brushing and flossing technique, and even if you no longer have your natural teeth, it’s crucial to be examined to maintain your oral health.
