Keep Your Teeth & Gums in Good Shape

A dental checkup is crucial to protecting your oral health. It also helps improve your overall well-being, since you are preventing harmful bacteria from reaching the rest of your body. That’s why you want an experienced dentist like Dr. Lee ensuring your mouth is in excellent condition.

Here is what you can expect during your cleaning and exam:

  • We’ll take photographs of your mouth in our in-house photo studio. This allows us to get a clear idea of any existing dental issues.
  • It may be necessary to take digital X-rays, as well. We’ll also analyze your bite and alignment using equipment such as our T-Scan and performing a joint vibration analysis.
  • Our team will check for signs of tooth decay, gum disease, and even oral cancer.
  • We’ll clean your teeth to remove surface stains and get rid of plaque and tartar build-up.
  • Your dentist will do an additional exam and discuss any necessary next steps to restore your dental health and function. We’ll also discuss your oral health history and any concerns you’ve noticed at home. If you’d like, we can also discuss your smile goals.

Typically, we recommend patients visit us every six months to get their teeth professionally cleaned and their mouth thoroughly examined. However, it may be necessary to visit us more if you are vulnerable to oral health issues like gum disease.
