Comprehensive Dental Exams
Your regular dental exams provide an opportunity for Dr. Brandt Jones and Dr. Leah McQuigg to monitor changes in your oral health. At your exam, our dentists will thoroughly review the health of your teeth, gums, and jaw function. They also perform periodic oral cancer screenings to identify any suspicious lesions that may indicate malignancy. Especially when detected early, oral cancer is usually highly treatable.
Our assistants will make notes regarding any conditions during your exams, and your dentist will go over your findings with you. We use intraoral cameras in our office to take digital images inside your mouth so you can see exactly what we see. This helps our patients gain an understanding of their oral health, which then assists them in making educated oral health decisions that can impact the future of their smile.
Digital Dental X-Rays
Because of the protective layer of enamel that covers your teeth and the fact that the root of your tooth is beneath your gums, not every oral health condition is visible to the naked eye. Dental x-rays allow us to see what lies beneath the surface and spot hidden decay and infection.
We use digital dental x-rays because of their high-resolution image capabilities and because they are extremely safe for our patients, with up to 80 percent less radiation than traditional film x-rays.
Professional Dental Cleanings
You could be a brushing and flossing champion and it would still be impossible to remove all traces of plaque from your teeth with brushing and flossing alone.
Professional dental cleanings remove the plaque and tartar that collect between your teeth and just below the gumline. Regular dental cleanings can help prevent gum disease and decay.
We customize your dental cleaning based on your needs. If you are a patient who is recovering from periodontal (gum) disease, you will need a different type of cleaning than someone who visits the dentist regularly and has great home care. Your oral health can change throughout your lifetime, and our hygiene team will always make sure you receive the type of cleaning you need to stay healthy and comfortable.
