Dental Cleanings: What to Expect
During your regular dental visits at SmileScapes Dentistry our dental hygienist will first thoroughly clean your teeth, flossing and polishing them and removing any plaque or tartar build-up.
During your cleanings, your dental hygienist will also check your mouth for any possible issues with loose or cracked teeth, dental appliances, crowns, or fillings.
Our expert dental hygienists and assistants take great care to ensure that our patients are comfortable and relaxed throughout their dental cleaning. After your visit, you will leave with a refreshed, clean-feeling mouth and smile.
Regular Dental Visits: More Than Just Cleaning
After your dental cleaning, Dr. Woods will carry out a number of examinations to ensure that you are in good oral health.
Dr. Woods will examine your gums to check for any signs of damage or gum disease. By catching symptoms of gum disease early, our team can help patients prevent further damage from occurring.
In addition to gum health, Dr. Woods will check your tongue and throat. He will also check your bite, lymph nodes, and jaw for possible issues or signs of temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ). While these examinations are quick and simple, they are also a crucial aspect of your oral health.
After evaluating your overall dental health, Dr. Woods and the SmileScapes Dentistry team may also make some recommendations to help you better maintain your oral hygiene in between visits.
