What Happens During the Checkup?
For the last part of your dental checkup, we’ll conduct a quick oral cancer screening where we examine your neck, face, throat, and oral tissues for any abnormalities or signs of cancer. The earlier we diagnose this condition, the higher the chances that it can be successfully treated, which is why we do this each time you visit us. If we find any oral health problems, we’ll form a treatment plan before moving onto the cleaning portion of your visit.
What Happens During the Cleaning?
The final part of your visit will be your professional dental cleaning. We use gadgets that are specially made to fit in the small corners of your mouth that you can’t get to with a regular toothbrush, such as a scaler, dental mirror, and polisher. This allows us to remove tartar and plaque buildup, preventing the formation of cavities down the road.
Using a scaler, we’ll begin clearing any harmful substances from below your gumline. Once your teeth are free of plaque and tartar, we’ll place a gritty substance called prophylaxis paste on our polisher and brush each of your teeth with it to break apart any surface stains. Lastly, we’ll floss between each tooth to remove any lingering food particles and plaque.
