Dental Cleanings & Dental Exams
There is not a single person on the face of the planet who can clean everywhere inside their mouth. You need a helping hand to get to certain areas inside your mouth. That is where dental cleanings and dental exams come into play. With these routine visits, Dr. Brar and Dr. Bram will help you keep your smile clean and healthy in South Elgin, IL.
Why Are Dental Exams And Dental Cleanings Important?
Dental problems can sneak up on you if you aren’t careful. In most cases, you will not be able to see the developing issues until they have reached damaging levels. By the time you notice tooth decay, it will have already eaten away at your natural tooth. By the time you notice gum disease, you may be in danger of tooth loss. Regular dental exams will give your dentist a chance to catch all of these conditions early on. The earlier they are caught, the easier it is to treat them.
The benefits of cleanings and exams do not stop with early disease and decay detection. Our dental team will professionally clean your mouth, including all the areas you aren’t able to reach. This will help keep you safe from disease and decay-causing plaque and tartar.
How Will My Appointment Go?
Your time with us will start with X-rays to get a benchmark for where your oral health currently stands and where it might be going. Our dental hygienist will go through your mouth and give it a thorough cleaning. The hygienist will make note of any area that needs a closer look for the dentist. After your cleaning, Dr. Brar or Dr. Bram will take over, going over your teeth and looking at any area that the hygienist noted. Your visit will also include an oral cancer screening and cavity detection with VELscope, which uses fluorescence technology to find cavities.
