Why are Dental Exams & Cleanings necessary?
Small dental problems can easily be treated when they’re found early on. With time, these same problems can get worse to the point of it having an effect on your dental and oral health. We recommend coming in for a cleaning and exam once every six months. This helps us to monitor for any changes and to find problems before they’re able to get worse.
Who is a candidate for Dental Exams & Cleanings?
Every patient, regardless of age, is a good candidate for an exam and cleaning. It is never too early or too late to start taking care of your teeth. Even if it’s been years since your last exam, we welcome you into our warm and inviting office to begin the treatment that you deserve. By taking a proactive approach to your dental health, you’re less likely to deal with severe dental problems later on.
What happens during Dental Exams & Cleanings?
First, our dental hygienist will perform the cleaning. The cleaning involves removing hardened plaque (tartar) and stains from the teeth. The teeth will then be flossed and polished to a high shine. The gums are then checked for any signs of pocketing, which could signal gum disease. Once the cleaning is finished, Dr. Seto will come in and perform the examination. The exam allows us to check for cavities, loose or broken restorations and even oral cancer. If additional work is needed, we’ll help to create a personalized treatment plan just for you.
