Routine Dental Exams
Dental exams give our team the opportunity to evaluate your current methods of dental care and provide suggestions for future care in order to protect you from dental problems. They also allow us to detect problems early so they can be fixed quickly and easily. Dental exams should generally take place every six months. During a dental exam, we will clean your teeth, check for signs of tooth decay and gum disease, and perform x-rays. Be prepared to schedule a follow-up appointment or future check-up at the end of your dental exam.
Do You Have Dental Anxiety?
Patients who are anxious about receiving treatment at a dental office can benefit from sedation dentistry. This method also benefits patients who have multiple treatments, have a low tolerance for pain, or have a poor gag reflex. We offer nitrous oxide as an option for patients during routine and more in-depth procedures. Nitrous oxide relaxes patients for calmer treatment. Our dental team also understands that some patients may have dental fear or anxiety, which is why they aim to make our office environment as comfortable and friendly as possible.
The dental cleaning services we offer in our dentist office thoroughly cleans the teeth and gums. Routine dental cleanings can help combat gum disease and tooth decay, as well as halitosis and gum swelling. There are multiple benefits that teeth cleanings offer patients. These benefits include:
Plaque removal: Plaque buildup above and below the gum line can cause tooth and gum infection. Our dentists use specialized dental equipment that can be used to get to areas where plaque may build up.
Improved tooth aesthetics: Cleaning the teeth and gums can help rid teeth of stains and teeth can become whiter and brighter with regular cleaning.
Fresher breath: Halitosis, also known as bad breath, is caused by a combination of rotting food particles and gum infection. Cleaning teeth regularly can help fight this type of infection, which leaves your breath fresher and your teeth healthier.
