Regular Teeth Cleaning and Preventative Dentistry Means Better Oral Health
The basics of preventative dentistry includes regular examinations with x-rays and teeth cleanings, but there is so much more to it!
Digital X-rays are the latest in dental x-ray technology. There is no film, no chemicals, and the x-rays are seen immediately by both the doctor and the patient. The x-rays are stored on the computer and can be emailed anywhere when completed. Now patients can have a copy sent to their email address by the time they leave the office. The radiation is 80 to 90% less than the outdated method used previously.
This includes looking for cavities, looking over old fillings and crowns, TMJ, muscle evaluation, oral cancer screening, gum disease evaluation, and x-ray interpretation.
A healthy person should get their teeth cleaned every six months. This includes the use of hand instruments to remove any hardened calculus, also know as tartar, which is a hardened version of plaque. After the teeth are smoothed, they are polished to smooth the surfaces below the gum line as well as the removal of any stain buildup on the teeth.
