HYGEINE
A comprehensive dental exam will be performed by your dentist. At regular check-up exams, your dentist and hygienist will include the following:

Examination of diagnostic x-rays (radiograghs)


Essential for detection of decay, tumors, cysts, and bone loss. X-rays also help determine tooth and root positions.

Oral cancer screening


Check the face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums for any signs of oral cancer.

Gum disease evaluation


Check the gums and bone around the teeth for any signs of periodontal disease.

Examination of tooth decay


All tooth surfaces will be checked for decay with special dental instruments.

Examination of existing restorations


Check current fillings, crowns, etc.

Removal of calculus (tartar)


Calculus is hardened plaque that has been left on the tooth for some time and is now firmly attached to the tooth surface. Calculus forms above and below the gum line and can only be removed with special dental instruments.

Removal of plaque


Plaque is a sticky, almost invisible film that forms on the teeth. It is a growing colony of living bacteria, food debris, and saliva. The bacteria produce toxins (poisons) that inflame the gums. This inflammation is the start of periodontal disease!

Teeth polishing


Remove stain and placque that is not otherwise removed during tooth brushing and scaling.
