The key to a great smile is teeth cleaning & checkups.
At Dr. Wank’s office, we strongly believe in a proactive approach to dental care. In the long run, dental hygiene services can protect your oral health and smile. When you visit Dr. Wank, DDS regularly, you protect yourself from tooth loss, toothaches, and expensive procedures. Even a small cavity has the potential to impact your overall oral health.
Dental Cleaning and Checkups
Professional cleanings keep your teeth and gums in tip-top shape. Having a teeth cleaning at least once every six months is fundamental to whole body health.
During your dental appointment, our licensed oral hygienists will discuss any concerns regarding your teeth, gums, or jaw you may be experiencing. Your teeth will be thoroughly examined of plaque, tartar, and any irregularities.
We will then take digital X-rays (plus intraoral pictures if needed) of your teeth to help spot any underlying problems.
Our hygienist will gently clean your teeth as well as examine them. During your teeth cleaning, our skilled dental hygienists will remove the plaque and tartar that you can’t remove at home during normal brushing and flossing. Though you probably brush and floss at home, you can’t remove tartar from your teeth. When plaque hardens onto the surface of your teeth, tartar can irritate gum tissue, leading to inflammation and eventually gum disease.
During the initial exam, our hygienist will make note of any problem areas that Dr. Wank needs to examine closer.
Then Dr. Wank will then carefully evaluate the health of your teeth and mouth, examine your mouth, assessing gum tissue for indications of gum diseases, analyzing your bite, inspecting each tooth, and looking for signs of oral cancer. He will take a closer look at any areas of concern. If Dr. Wank discovers cause for concern, he will review his findings with you and create a detailed plan to keep your smile bright and healthy.
You’ll leave Dr. Wank’s office with that thoroughly clean feeling you can only get at the dentist!
