Consider Regular Dental Exams and Cleanings for a Healthy, Confident Smile

Preventive dentistry is the foundation of any healthy smile. Along with consistent brushing and flossing, dental exams and cleanings at Dentalogic can support a lifetime of a healthy smile. Regular dental exams every six months keep your teeth and gums healthy to prevent discomfort and costly treatments down the road. 

Dr. Homam Saadi and the team offer you and your entire family preventive dental care services in a comfortable environment. 

What To Expect During A Dental Exam

A dental exam is a quick and painless procedure completed within 30-45 minutes. The process begins with physically examining your teeth, gums, tongue, and other oral structures. 

The objective of this exam is to spot signs of the following oral problems.

  • Gum disease
  • Tooth decay
  • Mouth cancer
  • Misalignment
  • Failing dental work

Visual exams can reveal many details of your smile, but our naked eyes can only see so much. We offer digital X-rays (radiographs) to unearth issues lurking beneath the gum line. Dental X-rays can help spot many problems, including bone loss, cysts, interproximal cavities, impacted wisdom teeth, tooth infections, etc. While you may have had safety concerns about X-rays in the past, modern radiographs are safe, emitting 80-90% less radiation than their traditional counterparts. 

Professional dental cleaning

After the dental exam, we will professionally clean your teeth to remove built-up plaque and tartar. Where we carefully clean all the teeth surfaces, including the hard-to-reach areas. After cleaning, polishing your teeth with a special paste for a shiny finish. 

A dental cleaning is more thorough than your toothbrush and dental floss. So, even if you diligently clean your teeth at home, never miss routine dental cleanings. These cleanings make up for missed spots during at-home dental care to protect your smile from gum disease, decay, and bad breath. 

Benefits of regular dental check-ups

Dental exams and cleanings should be part of your oral care regimen, whether young or old. These preventive visits offer numerous benefits, including:

  • Keep your breath fresh
  • Make your smile radiant
  • Prevent gum disease and tooth decay
  • Protect your overall health
  • Save you money
