Professional dental cleaning helps keep your teeth and your gums in a healthy condition. Even though you brush and floss at home, you need to visit your dentist for check-up and periodic cleanings to remove any hardened deposits not removed by routine cleaning. By having routine check ups, you can prevent the onset, progress, and recurrence of dental diseases and conditions. It is a continuous effort that is done by your home care and the care of your dentist to maintain your oral health. A comprehensive dental exam will be performed during your check up visit that includes:

Examination of x-rays (radiographs)
Oral cancer screening
Gum and bone disease evaluation

Prevention helps avoid serious and costly dental problems and is the key to having a healthy, beautiful smile.

Sealants and Fluoride
Our back teeth have deep groves, pits and fissures that collect food and bacteria. Because the pits are so narrow deep, food and bacteria gets stuck in it that often a toothbrush or even a dental pick cannot reach the trapped food resulting in a cavity forming. Sealants fill the deep pits and keep the tooth smooth with cavity free surface. How sealants are done? The tooth is cleaned, polished and dried. Sealants are placed in the deep pits without drilling and without a shot. It's easy and cost effective way for a cavity free mouth. Topical Fluoride is applied to your teeth to help protect the teeth against decay. After the fluoride application you should not drink or eat for 30 minutes to allow the fluoride to stay on your teeth for maximum benefit.
