Dental Exams & Cleanings In Flushing, NY
Utilizing Advanced Digital X-Rays
If you’ve scheduled your appointment for dental exams and cleaning in Flushing, you understand that regular visits to your dental provider are important. These routine exams help your dentist to diagnose and treat any issues as soon as they arise. Here at NY Smile Creators, we recommend that patients come in every six months for routine cleanings and exams.
Our dentists will give your teeth a thorough examination while searching for any signs of tooth decay, gum disease, or various other dental health problems. X-rays will be taken to get a closer look at the health of your teeth beneath the gums. This allows dentists to see any signs of bone loss, decay, and even tumors. They’ll become aware of all the positions of the teeth and determine if they are growing incorrectly
If you’ve been thinking about scheduling your exam and cleaning in Flushing, please don’t hesitate to give our dental office a call at (718) 550-3541 or contact online- these visits are essential to maintaining your dental health.
What Happens During Routine Teeth Cleanings
During your cleaning, the surfaces of your teeth will be checked for decay and cavities. If you have any existing fillings or crowns, they will be checked at this time. We will then perform a periodontal exam and check for any signs of gum disease. After this, our dentists will remove any tartar from your teeth using special dental tools. Tartar is a plaque that has built up and hardened near or under the gum line. If left untreated, this can eventually cause cavities and gum disease. Lastly, our dental hygienist will then floss your teeth and apply a fluoride treatment.
Although cleanings and exams are not painful, if you feel anxious about your appointment, please let us know. A form of sedation can be administered to help you relax and feel more comfortable in the dental chair.
Why Are X-Rays Important in Dentistry?
X-rays provide us with incredibly valuable information that is not otherwise accessed via a routine oral exam. With both standard and digital x-rays, we are able to clearly see what is going on beyond the gum line. Not only that, but x-rays also give us a better idea about what is lurking around in between your teeth above the gum line.
If there are any problems in your bones, or developing issues in the soft tissues or teeth, x-rays will pick these up. For example, early signs of tooth decay can be detected as this normally shows up as dark spots on otherwise white teeth.
X-rays are a benefit to comprehensive oral health care for many other reasons, including:
- Accurately diagnoses dental issues
- Helps in designing highly customized treatment plans
- Establishes a reference point so we can continually monitor changes/progress
