What to Expect During Your Dental Check Up and Clean
At every check up, our dentists will ask about any difficulties you may have had since your last visit. As you get comfortable in the dental chair, two procedures will take place:
One of our dentists will check for cavities and if there is any tartar build up on your teeth. Next, our dentists checks the gums to see if the spaces between your teeth and gums are shallow. Gum disease becomes apparent when these spaces become deeper. We will also check your tongue, throat, face, and neck for any signs of trouble or swelling as well as detecting any signs that might indicate other oral conditions.
Scale and Polish
Tartar build up needs to be removed, so our dentists uses advanced instruments to painlessly knock loose larger pieces of tartar and provide deep cleaning above and below the gum line.
Once all surfaces are smooth, they are polished to remove stains from the teeth. A special toothpaste-like material and fluoride are used to polish teeth. This powerful mix is spun around on the soon to be smooth and shiny teeth.
What’s Included in the Check Up and Clean
A dental check up is important to make sure your mouth is clean and healthy. The procedure usually includes:
- A professional cleaning of your teeth
- A thorough examination of your mouth
- An X-ray to check for any problems
- Fluoride treatment
