PREVENTIVE & DIAGNOSTIC

 

COMPREHENSIVE EVALUATION / ORAL EXAMINATION


An oral examination is a visual inspection of the mouth, head, and neck, performed to detect abnormalities.                                                                Radiographs allow for a more complete examination, helping the doctor to detect cavities, problems in existing                                                                      dental restorations, gum and bone recession or other abnormal conditions within the mouth, head and neck area.


CLEANING


A dental cleaning, also known as an oral prophylaxis, is the removal of dental plaque and tartar (calculus) from the teeth.                                            Specialized instruments are used to gently remove these deposits without harming the teeth. First, an ultrasonic device that                                                  emits vibrations and is cooled by water is used to loosen larger pieces of tartar. Next, hand tools are used to manually remove                                            smaller deposits and smooth the tooth surfaces. Once all the tooth surfaces have been cleaned of tartar and plaque, the teeth                                                 are polished.


CUSTOM MOUTH GUARDS


Many sports require athletes to use a mouth guard to protect their teeth while practicing and playing. Frequently used                                                                 in contact sports, the mouth guard covers the gums and teeth to provide protection for lips, gums, teeth, and arches.                                                                  A properly fitted mouth guard can reduce the severity of dental injuries.
