A beautiful smile is more than genetics. It takes a healthy mouth and gums to keep your teeth straight and bright. The best protection for your oral health is routine dental exams and cleaning. Contact Dr. Szyperski at North Bay Smiles in Petaluma, CA, for your regular dental exams, and we will help you maintain a glamorous smile.
Thorough dental exams
Once cavities and gingivitis develop in your mouth, they will only get worse over time. Early detection and intervention mean you will spend less time and money on dental procedures. Our practice utilizes the latest technology for screening your teeth and gums for issues, including intra-oral cameras and low radiation digital x-rays. These tools help us detect issues at their earliest stages before you need a root canal or surgery.
Dr. Szyperski will also screen your mouth for signs of oral cancer during every routine check-up. This will consist of a visual inspection of your lips and other soft tissues in your mouth, as well as your tongue and throat. She may use a laser to check for abnormal tissue growth. Oral cancer can be life-threatening because of how quickly it spreads to other parts of your body, and the sooner you catch it, the better your prognosis.
Freshen your teeth and gums
The hygienist will check your teeth and measure the pocket depths of your gums using various dental probes. They will scrape plaque and tartar off your teeth with a scaler and scoop tartar from underneath your gums using a curette. Once your teeth are clean, the hygienist will floss to remove any additional debris. Then, the hygienist will use a special abrasive polish on your teeth to remove staining in the enamel and smooth out the surface of your teeth after scaling them.
Plaque and tartar protect the bacteria responsible for cavities and gum infections. Once tartar has formed on your teeth, only a thorough professional cleaning can remove it and evict the bacteria beneath it. This will freshen your breath and preserve your teeth for a brighter, happier smile. Contact our office in Petaluma, CA, today at (707) 306-8001 for regular dental exams.
