Regular checkups are necessary for maintaining a healthy and beautiful smile. At Fairview Dental, we recommend that our patients visit us for a checkup twice a year. During our regular checkups, you will receive the following:
Professional cleaning: Daily brushing and flossing are a great way to maintain oral health, but a professional cleaning is even more effective. Our skilled team uses special tools to remove plaque and bacteria from those tricky places that your toothbrush can’t reach. A professional cleaning will make your teeth feel fresh and clean, while maintaining their overall health.
Full examination: Full examinations are to thoroughly check the teeth and mouth to see where your oral health stands. Our team will examine a patient’s mouth, lips, inner cheeks, gums and jawbone for any issues that may be present. If an issue is found, we will try to treat it in a timely manner.
Oral cancer screening: Oral cancer is a serious problem that can strike at any moment. We conduct oral cancer screenings in order to detect symptoms early if they are present, and we can treat them before the issue advances.
Digital X-rays: When necessary, the office of Fairview Dental will use digital X-rays during a checkup. If an issue prompts us to do so, digital X-rays allow us to see areas of the mouth that cannot be seen with the naked eye.
Your smile matters to us! If you would like more information about our regular checkups or to schedule your appointment with Fairview Dental, call us at (925) 255-1485.
