At Centre Mall dental, our dentistry team provides a strong foundation for great oral hygiene. Our professional staff are committed to ensuring our patients receive thorough care during their dental examinations and cleanings.
The Dental Examination
A comprehensive dental exam and cleaning is recommended for adults and children twice a year. During your initial dental examination at Centre Mall Dental, our staff will take full mouth x-rays to ensure the health of your gums, teeth, and jaw. X-rays will not be required at every visit, and we will discuss whether new x-rays are required.
During the check-up, patients receive a thorough examination of their teeth, gums, tongue, jaw and neck. We will examine each tooth for cavities, plaque, or damage using a small pick instrument and mirror. An examination of your gums will detect if any gum disease is present or needs treatment. Your head, neck and jaw are examined to diagnose any possible issues with glands or joints, such as TMJ disorder. If necessary, we may recommend additional x-rays, an oral cancer screening or a further periodontal inspection.
Comprehensive Dental Cleaning
After the comprehensive examination and evaluation, one of our professional and knowledgeable dental hygienists will perform a comprehensive cleaning. Professional cleanings are recommended twice a year to prevent cavities and identify any oral health issues as early as possible. A professional cleaning supplements the oral hygiene you maintain at home.
While it is recommended that adults brush three times a day and floss once a day, many patients only brush their teeth twice a day and floss less than once a day. A deep cleaning twice a year by one of our professional dental hygienists includes a polishing treatment to prevent cavities and protect teeth from decay.
