Maintaining good oral hygiene is critical for your dental health. For your healthiest and happiest smile, our Westbrook dentists recommend that you visit our office for regular dental exams and dental cleanings near Deep River, CT, twice a year.
A dental cleaning removes calculus (tartar) and plaque from your teeth both above and below your gumline. Even the most stringent at-home brushing and flossing regimen cannot fully remove all tartar and plaque. However, our special dental instruments at Westbrook Dental can get rid of anything that’s stubbornly clinging to your teeth. We finish your dental cleaning with a thorough teeth polishing to remove stains and any residual plaque that did not come off during the rest of the dental cleaning.
After your teeth are cleaned and polished, our Westbrook dentist will also perform a dental exam to ensure that you are going home free of any underlying dental concerns. This exam will address the following:
Dental X-rays are necessary for finding decay, tumors, cysts, and bone loss. For children, X-rays are useful in diagnosing developmental problems that can arise when new teeth are growing in.
Our dentist will examine your face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums for any signs of oral cancer.
We will check your gums and bone surrounding your teeth for signs of periodontal (gum) disease.
Our dentist will test the surfaces of all your teeth to ensure that no decay or cavities are forming.
If you already have fillings, crowns, or other dental restorations, our dentist will check them to confirm that they are in good condition.
Once you’ve been given a clean bill of dental health, don’t forget to continue your at-home brushing and flossing regimen!
