Thorough Oral Examinations
It’s important to remember that the more familiar your dentist is with your oral health, the easier it will be for them to recognize and locate potential concerns as soon as they begin to develop. During your six-month check-ups, one of our doctors will perform a comprehensive review of your current oral health, including screenings for issues like decay, teeth grinding, periodontal disease, oral cancer, and more. Digital X-rays are an invaluable tool during this process, as they may reveal damage that isn’t visible to the naked eye.
Once we’ve completed your exam, it will be time to sit down and review the findings. Dr. Dhaliwal and Dr. Tran will work with you closely to devise a treatment plan that meets your needs and reflects your personal goals for your smile.
Even the most in-depth brushing and flossing routine at home is unlikely to remove every bit of bacteria-filled plaque and tartar from the mouth. That’s where our excellent hygienist comes in! During your cleaning, they will perform a thorough sweep of tooth and gum surfaces, eliminating these dangerous substances and leaving your smile feeling refreshed. They can also provide instructions and recommendations for a more effective oral hygiene routine at home, if needed.
