At our dental clinic we complete a comprehensive exam when you schedule a check-up. This includes full mouth x-rays and a complete clinical exam including an oral exam, a head/neck exam, a complete periodontal exam, and a cancer screening.
Good oral hygiene is important to prevent a variety of dental and medical problems. Recent research has shown that the bacteria present in gum disease are also found in the plaques clogging arteries in people with heart disease. Therefore, a good professional cleaning is essential not only for the health of your teeth, but also for your general well-being. Providing thorough, yet gentle and comfortable, teeth cleaning procedures, our dental hygienists are skilled in dental care.
X-rays at our office are fast, thorough and very low risk. At every phase of treatment in which x-rays are needed, we use the latest in digital technology to give you rapid, accurate diagnostic results with much less radiation than conventional x-rays.
Because they are computerized, the digital x-rays utilize sensors rather than film. Sensors require much less radiation to yield an image. This means that our patients experience only a very low level of radiation when they are x-rayed.
The sensors are also smaller and more comfortable, making the process of taking X-rays easier, more efficient and far more comfortable, even for gaggers and children.
We do necessary gum treatment to handle mild to intermediate gum disease, including scaling and root planing.With follow-up and home-care, this considerably reduces the chance of further progression of the gum disease. Read more about gum treatment here.
Fillings are a fast and painless procedure with us. You will hardly feel your shot, if at all, and we always use high-quality composite (white) fillings.
