Keep Up With General Dental Care For Clean Teeth & Gums

When people think about dental care, general dental services are probably what come to mind. Several types of treatment fall under this category, including routine dental cleanings and exams.

While you’ve most likely had dental checkups elsewhere, we like to think that our checkups are among the most thorough:

  • We’ll begin with a set of X-rays to look for any problems with your teeth, nerves, or bones. Our office even features intraoral cameras that allow you to see inside your mouth just like our staff does.
  • Next, your dental hygienist will look over your teeth and gums, making notes of any problem areas your dentist will need to take a closer look at.
  • Then your hygienist will carefully clean and polish each of your teeth, making sure to reach those areas you might miss at home with regular brushing and flossing.
  • Your dentist will then perform a complete dental exam, paying extra attention to any areas noted by the hygienist.
  • We’ll make recommendations for any other general dental services needed, such as fluoride treatment. If we find any cavities or other problems, we’ll advise you on what treatment is needed.

Sometimes we find signs of gum disease during routine checkups. In these cases, a “deep cleaning” will be recommended in which we perform scaling and root planing to rid your gums of plaque, tartar, and bacteria. This type of general dentistry, known as periodontal treatment, may be required every few months if you’re prone to gum disease.
