Oral Exam, X-Rays, & Cleaning

Exams :
Your initial oral examination includes a visual exam of your teeth and surrounding areas coupled with a series of  digital  X-Rays. These X-Rays are taken  for proper diagnosis and to be able to come up with a comprehensive treatment plan. Recall Visits are then advised every 6 months for checking, maintaining and re-enforcing dental health.

X-rays help in detecting decay, infections in the bone surrounding  the teeth, cysts and tumors, congenitally missing teeth, supernumerary teeth, impacted teeth, bone levels surrounding teeth, etc.

Cleaning is a preventative procedure that is important to maintain healthy gum tissue. It involves removing plaque and other deposits that accumulate on teeth especially closer to the gums. Plaque contains bacteria that produces toxins that cause gum disease. Healthy gums are important as they are the supporting foundation of teeth. Cleanings are mostly performed during your initial or recall exam visit. In patients who have gum disease (Gingivitis or the more  severe form Periodontitis) a deeper cleaning may be required and may need multiple visits.)
