The Pure Smiles Dental Team believes in the importance of regular Teeth Cleanings and Checkups. During your appointment with us, we will clean your teeth both above and below the gum line using traditional hand scalers and our ultrasonic scaling tools to remove calculus from your teeth.
During your Teeth Cleanings and Checkups we also complete the following:
- A comprehensive assessment of your mouth to check for gum recession, periodontal disease, and any other possible concerns.
- We will polish your teeth to remove surface stains and plaque.
- We complete a fluoride treatment to help strengthen your tooth enamel.
- We complete an examination to check your head, neck and jaw areas for abnormalities and conduct a thorough oral cancer screening, assessing the gum tissues, tongue, and lips for signs of oral cancer.
- We take digital x-rays (when needed) to diagnose tooth decay and concerns not visible to the naked eye.
- We provide you with a detailed treatment plan to correct any existing conditions with one of our Dental Services.
