Diagnostic Exam & Cleaning
Comprehensive dental exam include diagnostic x-rays, oral cancer screening, jaw joints (TMJ) condition evaluation, gum health evaluation, examination of tooth decay, and examination of existing dental restorations. The exam will be followed by professional dental cleaning by our dental hygienists, which is recommended for everyone, every six months.
Dental cleaning is necessary to remove plaque, calculus, and tartar around your teeth and your gum. Plaque is a thin, sticky film that forms on the teeth and serves as bacteria colony. Calculus is hardened plaque that is now firmly attached to the tooth surface. Calculus can be removed only with special dental instruments such as an ultrasonic cavitron and dental scalers.
