Dental Hygiene Appointments

Routine Dental Checkups

A dental exam is vital to good oral hygiene. It is the best way to detect problems at their earliest stages to minimize unnecessary discomfort, time, and money.

The American Dental Association recommends checkups two times a year. Your oral hygiene needs to change with age and the condition of your teeth and gums. Your dentist may recommend checkups that are more or less frequent than twice a year.

Digital Diagnostics

Our office uses digital sensors to obtain x-rays which result in significantly less radiation exposure and provide higher quality, diagnostic images. Your dentist will determine the frequency that these need to be updated.

We are also up to date with the latest advances in dental equipment. We have 3D technology that aids our doctors in the planning and development of treatment plans and the progression of dental treatments. Our intraoral cameras provide magnified, clear images of all surfaces inside your mouth.

Visual Exam

Your dentist checks the lymph nodes around your head, jaw, and neck for any pain, tenderness, and mobility. This examination also includes examining the jaw joint and looking for sores in the mouth. The tongue, lips, gums, and mucous membranes are all thoroughly checked.

Gingival Pocket Exam

  • To have healthy teeth, you need to have healthy gums. The gingival pocket exam is crucial to determine the health of our gums. It will be a big asset to determining the risk or presence of periodontal disease.
    • Removing food debris and plaque that accumulates in the gingival pocket is highly important to maintain healthy gums. If it is not removed, harmful bacteria penetrates the gumline, increasing the depth of the pocket. Once this occurs, the risk of tooth damage and infection goes up.
    • If gum disease is caught at an early stage, it can be reversed. Usually, gum disease is asymptomatic, so it is possible that it is present without knowing so.

Additional services include:

  • Dental Cleaning: Our dental hygienists use specialized instruments to remove soft and hard deposits from above and below the gumline. They also perform non-surgical periodontal therapy for patients who are periodontally involved.
  • Electronic Dental Record: Records of our patients are kept electronically. This makes it more convenient and easier for our providers to have immediate access to medical histories, treatment plans, and progress reports. Electronic records provide fast, safe, and secure methods of communication between our dentists and specialists.
  • Good Oral Hygiene: The key to a healthy mouth is to keep plaque and food debris from accumulating on your teeth. Plaque and food debris attracts harmful bacteria that causes dental cavities, gum disease, and bad breath. The tongue attracts bacteria too. Bacteria on the tongue creates a filmy, white coating on the top of your tongue. It is important to brush your tongue at every tooth cleaning to disrupt this film and promote good oral health.
  • Benefits of Good Hygiene:
    • Less plaque to remove at routine cleanings to make your professional cleanings more comfortable and faster.
    • Reduce the incidence of tooth decay and gum disease
    • Minimize the amount of money spent on dental procedures throughout the year.
    • Feel healthier, enjoy fresher breath, and be more confident about your smile.
