Dental care is essential to keep your dental health in check and prevent succumbing to diseases. Many reasons add to dental problems, including your eating habits, lifestyle, underlying diseases, and poor oral hygiene.
When you do not maintain your oral hygiene, you fall prey to many unwanted concerns – tooth decay, gum disease, discolored teeth, bad breath, infections, to name a few. It is, therefore, vital to take your oral health seriously and visit us for regular dental examinations and cleanings.
- Routine Dental Examination
We perform a comprehensive dental exam on all our patients during their visits. From checking the condition of your teeth to carrying out X-rays and discussing the treatment plan with you, our dental examination services are customized according to your requirements. The routine dental examination must be performed at least twice a year.
X-rays are essential for the detection of bone loss, tooth decay, tumors, and cysts. We also carry out X-rays to determine the position of your teeth and roots.
When detected at the right time, the treatment of oral cancer can save your life. During oral cancer screening, we check your lips, face, neck, tongue, throat, and other tissues for any signs of oral cancer.
We check your gums and bone around your teeth for the signs of gum diseases.
All the surfaces of your teeth are checked meticulously using our dental instruments for tooth decay.
During your dental check-up and examination, we also check the condition of your existing restorations like dental crowns, fillings, implants, etc.
- Professional Dental Cleaning
We perform a professional dental cleaning to remove the accumulation of tartar, plaque, and other substances from the surface of your teeth and to retain your pearly white smile.
Calculus or tartar is a hardened plaque that gets firmly attached to your teeth when it remains on them for a long time. We carry out their removal using special dental tools and instruments. If not removed, they may lead to a tooth infection and gum disease.
Plaque is an invisible, sticky film forming on your teeth. If grown, it also houses living bacteria, thus leading to infection and decay. The bacteria produce toxins, leading to inflammation of your gums.
This procedure helps to remove stain and plaque, which is not otherwise removed with your regular practices like brushing and scaling. It leaves your teeth shiny, bright, and well-polished.
