Lewis Center Comprehensive Exams and Teeth Cleanings
What To Expect From A Teeth Cleaning
Teeth cleanings are performed by dental hygienists and the process begins with a quick exam to determine if there are any serious oral health issues that may prevent the cleaning from being conducted properly. Your cleaning will begin with the removal of plaque and tartar from your teeth and gums. Using specialized dental tools, your hygienist will clean between your teeth and gums, and remove tartar buildup. This helps prevent gum disease and keeps your smile looking great.
After this, your hygienist will begin brushing your teeth using a special, gritty toothpaste and a high-powered brush. This toothpaste will help buff away bacteria and plaque, and leave your teeth bright, shiny and clean.
The final step of teeth cleaning is usually flossing. Your hygienist will floss between each one of your teeth, removing plaque and bacteria. Then, your hygiene appointment will be complete, and it will be time for your oral exam.
Comprehensive Oral Exams – The Key To Preventative Dentistry
Your hygienist will discuss any potential issues with your mouth with Dr. Gavin. Then, she will come in and perform a comprehensive oral exam. She will look for signs of tooth decay and gum disease, and evaluate the overall health of your teeth, gums, roots, and oral tissue. X-rays and imaging may be recommended to look for hidden dental issues that may not be immediately visible.
