Dental Exam & Cleaning

Dental Exam & CleaningDental Exam

A dental exam is an important part of your permanent dental history. Your first dental visit establishes your oral health and our Northridge dentist provides a thorough examination. In your visit:
•  Dental X-Ray Review: This helps to detect tooth decay, cysts or tumors, or bone loss. The x-ray is also used to help determine tooth and root positions.
•  Oral Cancer Screening: The gum line, lips, throat, face, and neck will be thoroughly reviewed for signs of cancerous growth that is essential in early detection.
•  Evaluate Gum Health: The gum line and the surrounding bone will be reviewed for any signs of periodontal disease.
•  Examine for Tooth Decay: Our dentist uses specialized tools that are used to check each section of a tooth for signs of tooth decay.
•  Examine Restorations: Any crowns, fillings, implants, or veneers will be checked for damage.

Professional Dental Cleaning

Thorough cleanings by our dentist, known as Dental Prophylaxis, are useful to help keep teeth healthy. This cleaning should be scheduled a minimum of twice each year. Your dental cleaning includes the following:
•  Calculus and Tarter Removal: Plague that is left on the tooth surface hardens into calculus. This hardened material is firmly attached to the tooth exterior and can only be removed by our dentist using special tools.
•  Plaque Removal: Plaque is a sticky and invisible substance that forms on the teeth. It includes food particles, saliva, and harmful bacteria that can erode tooth enamel or cause periodontal disease when not removed.
•  Teeth Polishing: This removes excess bacteria and plaque that is not removed with standard brushing and dental scaling.

A good oral health starts with brushing and flossing at home and regular dental exams and cleanings by our Northridge dentist.
