Keeping up with your oral health is extremely important. In addition to regular brushing and flossing, you should also visit our practice twice a year for a complete dental checkup. Complete dental check ups at Admire Dental Southgate include a professional teeth cleaning, digital X-rays when necessary and an oral cancer screening.
Professional Teeth Cleaning
Also called prophylaxis, a professional teeth cleaning consists of a deep cleanse of the entire mouth, including all teeth and gums. We use special tools to remove plaque that has built up on the surface of the teeth and below the gum line. The process also involves cleansing and polishing the teeth to eliminate surface stains and any remaining plaque. The treatment leaves patients with a long-lasting feeling of oral freshness and reduced bad breath.
Oral Cancer Screening
The best way to effectively treat cancer is to detect the disease in its earliest stages. That is why the oral care experts at Admire Dental Southgate conduct oral cancer screenings during every complete dental checkup. We use this opportunity to examine the lips, tongue, face, gums, throat and oral tissues for any signs or symptoms of the disease. A biopsy will be conducted as soon as possible if any abnormalities are discovered.
Our practice features state-of-the-art digital radiography devices that enable us to obtain a detailed look at the hidden areas of a patient’s mouth. Using these devices, we can instantly and safely learn more about the problems and issues that a patient may be experiencing, allowing us to provide the best treatment possible.
