Check-up & Clean
The key to maintaining a sparkling smile is by staying on top of your oral health. Regular check ups and professional cleaning are just one of the ways we can keep you on track.
What’s involved in a checkup?
Routine dental examinations are essential to help you maintain healthy teeth and gums. During an exam, we will thoroughly inspect your teeth and soft tissues. Your doctor will also perform an oral cancer screening and use digital and panoramic x-rays to spot early signs of decay, bone recession, and other concerns.
Cleaning at home VS at the dentists
Brushing and flossing at home is of the utmost importance when it comes to oral hygiene. But every so often a deep clean is highly recommended to stay on top of plaque and gum health. Regular brushing is effective at removing tartar. However, plaque (hardened tartar) is far more difficult to move once it has developed. A dentist can expertly remove any plaque buildup with special scaling tools that a toothbrush can’t. A dentist can also clean your teeth above the gumline – an area that is difficult to reach with a toothbrush or floss.
