COMPREHENSIVE DENTAL CLEANING
All smiles must grapple with the threat of plaque. The invisible, sticky film is filled with bacteria that can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. Patients who diligently brush and floss can remove harmful plaque accumulations to preserve a healthy smile. Unfortunately, even with the best brushing and flossing methods, there are still areas you cannot clean at home. If the buildup is not removed, it can calcify, turning it into tartar.
This is where a skilled hygienist steps in. By thoroughly cleaning your teeth and gums, we remove the harmful buildup that can compromise the health of your smile. This significantly reduces the need for a costly treatment in the future because we can stop preventable issues from occurring in the first place, like tooth decay and gum disease.
COMPLETE DENTAL CHECKUP
At your routine visits, Dr. Herman does more than just clean your teeth. You’ll also have a comprehensive checkup. Even if you don’t currently have any dental concerns, there may be issues below the surface that can impact the health of your smile. Dr. Herman performs a complete checkup to detect them sooner to prevent them from worsening.
The first step towards providing the quality care you deserve is to fully understand your needs. During regular appointments, Dr. Herman carefully inspects every aspect of your oral health including the surface of each tooth, your gums, and your bite. She’ll also perform an oral cancer screening.
Digital X-rays provide her with detailed images of the areas that aren’t accessible to the naked eye. Additionally, she also reviews any past dental work you’ve received, particularly the status of existing restorations. Once she has all the information she needs, she develops a customized treatment plan.
QUICK DETECTION AND TREATMENT
During your exam, Dr. Herman may discover a cavity or two. She can quickly treat the decay with a filling to prevent it from extending deeper into your tooth. This saves you the hassle and expense of a more invasive treatment down the road. You don’t need to worry about a dark metal filling causing an eyesore when your smile. Dr. Herman provides tooth-colored fillings for natural-looking results.
