Regular dental exams and cleanings are the cornerstones of preventative dental care. Professional teeth cleanings help you preserve dental health by preventing dental issues, such as bacterial infections, cavities, etc. Dental exams look for the earliest signs of dental problems to address them at the earliest stage possible. At Valley Grace Dental, our exceptional dental team performs a thorough dental exam and teeth cleaning during the same session to maximize efficiency. For optimal lifelong oral health, we recommend scheduling dental exams and cleanings for your family once every six months.
Our Dental Exams Include:
Digital X-Ray Exams
Digital x-rays are far more effective, efficient, and safer than traditional x-rays because they produce immediate results and expose you to 80-90% less radiation. Our digital x-ray exams look for signs of gum disease, bone loss, cysts, tumors, etc. They also help us identify your tooth and root positions for accurate dental treatments.
Our Professional Teeth Cleanings
No matter how well you brush and floss, you can’t remove all the micro-particles of food stuck in the deep recesses of your teeth or between your teeth and gums. These food particles eventually lead to the formation of a white and sticky film called plaque, which, in turn, hardens into a yellowish substance called tartar. Plaque and tartar are hotbeds of bacterial growth and can’t be removed through simple brushing techniques. If left untreated, they eventually lead to inflammation and gum disease. The primary goal of a teeth cleaning is to remove accumulated plaque, tartar, and bacteria from your teeth and gums.
