New and existing patients are always welcome at Dale Rottman, DDS for a complete dental checkup. We advise all of our patients to visit us once every six months for a routine examination. During this time, you can sit back in our heated massage chairs and listen to music or watch a movie while we take care of your teeth. While you are here, you can receive a professional teeth cleaning, digital X-rays if necessary, and an oral cancer screening. If any important issues are discovered, we will be sure to provide necessary treatment as quickly as possible.
Professional Teeth Cleaning
A professional teeth cleaning, or prophylaxis consists of a deep cleanse of the entire mouth, including all teeth and gums. Using special tools, our experts remove any plaque that has built-up on the surface of the teeth and below the gum line. We also polish and cleanse the teeth in order to eliminate any surface stains that are present. This thorough process leaves teeth looking clean and provides patients with a sense of oral freshness for many months to come. We also use this opportunity to look out for any signs of gum disease or tooth decay in the patient’s mouth.
Digital X-rays allow our team to safely and instantly examine the hidden areas of a patient’s oral structures. By doing this, we can detect problems or issues that would otherwise be invisible. After this process, we will have a stronger understanding of any symptoms that the patient is experiencing, and we will be able to move forward with the most effective treatment possible.
Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer can strike at any time, and that is why we are always on a careful lookout for the disease. We carefully examine the patient’s lips, tongue, face, gums, throat and oral tissues for any symptoms of oral cancer.
