We know that every patient has different needs and by choosing All About Teeth our community of patients will receive thorough care during their dental examinations, procedures, and professional dental cleanings.

     

    The Dental Examination

    A complete dental examination is recommended twice-yearly for children and adults of all ages. If needed and recommended by our Dentist during the initial visit, our staff will take a complete set of oral X-rays to ensure our patients teeth and supporting structures are healthy. By doing this, we are able to diagnose cavities, identify any pre-existing boneless and check for any lesions that might be abnormal. Radiographs will not be mandatory at all visits but are highly recommended once a year and before any dental procedures that may require them.

    During the examination, the dentist will come in and check each tooth and the surrounding tissues including the patient’s gums, tongue and cheeks. By doing this, the Dentist at All About Teeth will inspect every tooth for cavities, assess plaque levels to determine if gum disease is present, and look for any damage such as broken teeth. Also, our dentist will provide Oral Cancer Examinations as well as examine the patients Temporal Mandibular Joint (TMJ) looking at our patient’s tissues and teeth will allow our team to write up a personalized treatment plan for each individual patient. This plan of action will be thoroughly explained to the patient so a clear understanding is reached before any actual dental work is started. It is important to us that our patients know what the finish line looks like after the initial exam.

    Dental Cleaning

    After the examination is complete, one of our professional and knowledgeable All About Teeth Hygienists will perform a complete dental cleaning. Professional cleanings are encouraged to prevent or slow the process of dental decay, gum disease also known as Gingivitis, and bone loss also known as Periodontitis.  These cleanings are very important for our patients so that they have a healthy foundation. Dental decay and periodontitis are the top two reasons why patients end up losing teeth. It is good to quickly find and establish a treatment for any oral health conditions in order to prevent tooth loss. A professional cleaning is secondary to the oral hygiene you maintain at home.

    It is strongly encouraged that patients brush and floss their teeth twice a day. Call us today at 435-752-7874 or submit a request for an appointment online!
