What Does a Preventive Dental Appointment Include?

At Little Silver Family Dental, preventive checkups begin with a review of any symptoms you may be experiencing and a visual examination of your teeth and gums. The hygienist will perform a routine cleaning, using special tools to carefully clean your teeth surfaces including the area at the gum line where plaque and tartar form.

During your cleaning, the hygienist will be looking for places where your brushing and flossing techniques may not be effective at removing tartar and plaque. Once the cleaning is complete, the hygienist can give you tips to help you improve your techniques for better between-visit care. After the cleaning, your teeth and gums will be carefully examined for signs of decay and disease using safe, comfotable digital X-Rays, and an oral cancer screening will be performed.
