NEW PATIENT SPECIAL
Oral hygiene impacts not only your smile, but your overall body health as well. Regular exams and cleanings are an important part of maintaining your oral health.
During your visit, we will:
- Check for any underlying problems.
- Look for cavities and/or signs of tooth decay.
- Inspect your teeth and gums for gingivitis and signs of periodontal disease.
- Perform a thorough teeth cleaning.
Our regular exams include a detailed teeth cleaning, in which we clean, polish, and rinse your teeth to remove any tartar and plaque that have built up on your tooth’s surface.
Visiting our office every six months gives you the chance to talk to the doctor about any questions you may have about your oral health. Regular exams are offered by appointment, so please contact our practice today to schedule your next dental exam and teeth cleaning.
During a CBCT scan, the machine rotates around the patient, capturing images using a cone-shaped X-ray beam. These images are then used to construct a 3-D image of the patient’s teeth, oral and maxillofacial region (mouth, jaw, and neck), and ears, nose, and throat.
CBCT provides a fast, non-invasive way of answering a number of clinical questions, and helps with the diagnosis, treatment planning and evaluation of certain conditions. The radiation doses from dental CBCT exams are generally lower than other CT exams.
