ORAL HEALTH ASSESSMENT
Head and neck screening for oral cancer. Under the gum examination and monitoring for gum disease. Brackets, bone loss, and receding gums.
Teeth cleaning is part of oral hygiene and involves the removal of dental plaque from teeth to prevent cavities (dental caries), gingivitis, and periodontal disease. People routinely clean their teeth by brushing and interdentally cleaning, and dental hygienists can remove hardened deposits (tartar) not removed by routine cleaning. Those with dentures and natural teeth may supplement their cleaning with a denture cleaner.
Our professional cleaning includes tooth scaling and tooth polishing and debridement if tartar has accumulated. This is done both above and below where the gum meets the tooth.
