What Happens During a Dental Cleaning

During your next preventive visit, our skilled hygienists will perform a thorough and gentle cleaning to keep your smile bright and healthy. Here's what you can expect:

  • Plaque and tartar removal: Using specialized tools, our hygienist will carefully remove plaque and tartar from your teeth. Plaque is a sticky film that forms on your teeth and harbors harmful bacteria, while tartar is hardened plaque that can only be removed professionally.
  • Polishing: After removing plaque and tartar, your teeth will be polished using a gentle yet effective polishing paste. This step helps eliminate surface stains and leaves your teeth feeling smooth and refreshed.
  • Flossing: Our hygienist will skillfully floss between your teeth to remove any remaining debris or plaque buildup.
  • Fluoride treatment: Sometimes, we may use fluoride to strengthen your tooth enamel and provide added protection against cavities.

What Happens During a Dental Exam

During your visit, our experienced dentist will carefully evaluate your oral health and address any concerns you may have. Here's what you can expect:
  • Comprehensive examination: Our dentist will perform a thorough examination of your teeth, gums, and overall oral cavity. They will check for signs of tooth decay, gum disease, teeth misalignment, bite issues, and other potential oral health problems.
  • Digital X-rays: In some cases, digital X-rays may be taken to obtain a detailed view of your teeth, jaw, and supporting structures. This diagnostic tool allows our dentist to identify any underlying issues that may not be visible during a visual examination.
  • Individualized treatment plan: Based on the findings from the examination, our dentist will create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. This may include recommendations for further treatments or addressing any existing dental concerns.
  • Discussion and education: Our dentist will take the time to discuss their findings with you, answering any questions you may have. They will provide guidance on maintaining good oral hygiene practices at home and offer recommendations for preventive measures to help you preserve your smile.

What Happens During an Oral Cancer Screening

At Blooming Smiles Dental Studio, we take your oral health seriously. That's why we include an oral cancer screening as a part of our comprehensive dental checkups. Here's what you can expect during an oral cancer screening:

  • Visual examination: Our dentist will conduct a visual inspection of your oral cavity, including your lips, tongue, gums, throat, and other oral tissues. They will look for any abnormalities, such as sores, red or white patches, or other suspicious lesions.
  • Manual palpation: Our dentist may also use their gloved hands to gently feel the tissues in your mouth and neck. This allows them to detect any lumps, bumps, or irregularities that may require further investigation.
  • Additional diagnostic tests: In some cases, we may use advanced diagnostic tools to enhance our examination and detect potential abnormalities that may not be visible to the naked eye.

Frequently Asked
Questions

How often should I have a dental checkup?

It is generally recommended to have a dental checkup every six months. However, the frequency may vary depending on your oral health needs. Some individuals with specific conditions or higher risk factors may require more frequent visits, as advised by their dentist.

What happens during a dental checkup?

During a dental checkup, your dentist will perform a thorough examination of your teeth, gums, and oral cavity. They will check for signs of decay, gum disease, oral cancer, and other oral health problems. Additionally, a dental cleaning will be done to remove plaque, tartar, and stains from your teeth.

Are dental checkups painful?

Dental checkups are typically painless. The examination involves a visual inspection and gentle probing of your teeth and gums. However, if you experience any discomfort or have dental anxiety, inform your dentist beforehand so they can take steps to make you more comfortable during the checkup.

Do dental checkups include X-rays?

X-rays may be part of a dental checkup, depending on your dental history and individual needs. X-rays provide a more detailed view of your teeth, jaw, and supporting structures, allowing dentists to identify issues that may not be visible during a visual examination. X-ray frequency varies based on factors such as age, dental health, and risk of dental problems.

Can dental checkups detect oral cancer?

Yes, dental checkups can include an oral cancer screening. Dentists are trained to recognize signs of oral cancer during a visual examination of your mouth, throat, and oral tissues. Early detection of oral cancer increases the chances of successful treatment and recovery.

Can children have dental checkups?

Absolutely! Children should start having dental checkups as soon as their first tooth erupts or by their first birthday, whichever comes first. Regular dental checkups for children help monitor their oral development, detect any potential issues, and establish good oral hygiene habits from an early age.

How much do dental checkups cost?

The cost of dental checkups can vary depending on factors such as your dental insurance coverage and specific treatments or X-rays performed during the visit. It's best to contact our dental office or insurance provider to get information on the cost of dental checkups and any coverage you may have.

Can I schedule a dental checkup if I have dental anxiety?

Yes! Our dental office is equipped to handle patients with dental anxiety or fear. Inform our team about your anxiety when scheduling the appointment so they can provide the necessary accommodations to make your visit more comfortable. Techniques like sedation dentistry or creating a calming environment can help ease dental anxiety.

How do I book a dental checkup?

Booking a dental checkup is easy! Simply contact our office and request an appointment. A friendly member of our staff will guide you through the process and find a suitable date and time for your dental checkup.
