At Noble Dental, we believe it is important you visit your dentist every six months for a regular checkup and professional cleaning. The first step is to call our office to schedule an appointment. Once you arrive, the dentist, our assistants, and the hygienist will carry out the necessary dental treatments you may require during your visit.
Professional Teeth Cleaning:
Once you make your appointment, our hygienist will do a professional teeth cleaning. This procedure consists of scraping off built up plaque and tartar that collects above and below the gum line. If necessary, the hygienist will also floss between and around every tooth to remove any plaque or food particles that are clinging on. Next, using a tooth polisher, with a spinning head and slightly abrasive paste, the hygienist will get rid of any residue that was previously missed.
Oral Cancer Screening:
According to the American Dental Association (ADA), it is highly recommended that an oral cancer screening is completed during your first visit to the dentist. The examination is performed at our office by the dentist who will look for signs of cancer or precancerous conditions in your mouth. During your exam, you will be asked questions regarding any changes in your medical history and whether you are experiencing any new or unusual symptoms. At Noble Dental, we understand the importance of early detection of cancerous or precancerous conditions for our patients.
X-rays allow the dentist to catch problems that may be lurking beneath the surface of a tooth. With today’s technology, there’s a better alternative to traditional x-rays. Using digital radiography, our office can get a more accurate image of your teeth and oral structures without exposing you to unnecessary radiation. The images are readily available and transferred to a computer screen where the dentist can show you just what’s going on inside your mouth. Digital x-rays are a safer, faster, and a more effective method of radiography—and because the images are digital, it’s more environmentally friendly.
