The Benefits of Routine Dental Exams & Cleanings
Regular oral health cleanings can have massive benefits for your oral health, including the following:
- Filling the gaps in your daily oral hygiene routine
- Providing early diagnosis for gum disease, cavities, or oral cancer
- Immediately treating underlying oral health issues
- Eliminating plaque and tartar
Plaque is a thin, white film of bacteria that food, beverages, smoke, and mucus deposit onto your teeth. Plaque buildup leads to tooth decay, chronic bad breath, and gum disease, along with a host of other dental problems.
Eventually, deposits of plaque harden into tartar. This tough substance is difficult to remove without professional cleanings and leads to infection-harboring pockets between your teeth and gums.
Our Dental Exam & Cleaning Services
Preventive Dental Cleanings
Our North Miami Beach dentists recommend scheduling your appointments at our office twice a year. We’ll clean your teeth to rid them of plaque and tartar during these routine maintenance visits using specialized dental tools, advanced technology, and expert training. These cleanings can help prevent serious oral health issues when you add them to your daily oral health routine.
An essential tool in our office is our digital X-ray system. The X-ray images help us assess your children’s jaw development as well as monitor for and treat issues such as:
- Jaw bone loss
- Tooth decay
- Misaligned or impacted teeth
- Tumors and oral pathologies
With digital imaging technology, we can instantly get a clear picture of your facial structure while exposing you to up to 90% less radiation than traditional X-rays.
Oral Cancer Screening
One of the most vital aspects of your routine dental exam is an oral cancer screening. Our dentists provide this service during every exam, making sure to assess even the subtlest signs of cancer and other oral pathologies.
If we detect any symptoms, we’ll advise you about diagnosis and treatment options. Ask about your routine oral cancer screening at your consultation at our North Miami Beach dental office.
