Dental cleanings and exams are vital for your oral health, but they might be a little nerve wracking. However, that could be the case because you’re not sure what to expect during your appointment. So, to help you, our Abba Aesthetic Smiles & Orthodontics LLC dental team would be happy to explain the processes involved in your treatment.
First, you’ll receive a dental cleaning and exam. Your dental cleaning will be easy and painless, but it might involve a tiny bit of pressure. To begin, your hygienist will remove the plaque and tartar from your smile with special tools and techniques. This is extremely beneficial because it helps you prevent gum disease. Then, they will briefly check your mouth for any signs of trouble. Next, they will floss the crevices of your smile and free any food particles, plaque, and tartar that live between your teeth. Finally, they will polish your chompers with a polishing treatment, which will remove the surface stains of of your smile.
At the end of your visit, Dr. Tayo Ogunsola will examine your entire mouth and look for any signs of tooth decay, gum disease, and enamel erosion. If he sees any signs, he will discuss your treatment options with you to help you strengthen your smile and oral health. In addition to this exam, he will also perform an oral cancer screening, which will involve inspecting your mouth and throat for signs of oral or pharyngeal cancer.
