What To Expect During Your Dental Checkup

After our team has warmly greeted you and taken care of the necessary paperwork, you will be guided to one of our exam rooms. If it is your first time visiting us or it has been quite some time since your last appointment, then we will likely begin your dental checkup by taking a few X-rays. From there, we will conduct an oral exam, thoroughly inspecting your teeth, gums, throat, and overall oral cavity. If we see anything of note, like the initial stages of gum disease or warning signs of oral cancer, we will bring it to your attention and discuss your treatment options. On the other hand, if your oral health is in good condition, then we will move onto your cleaning!

What To Expect During Your Teeth Cleaning

During your dental cleaning in Big Pine Key, we will use a variety of dental tools to gently clean every nook and cranny of your mouth. Not only will we remove built-up plaque, but we will also clean along the gumline and cleanse even the hard-to-reach areas of your mouth. To wrap up your visit, we will use a special polish to break apart surface stains and refresh your smile.

Why Your Routine Checkups and Cleanings Are So Important

  • Providing routine oral cancer screenings
  • Preventing dental emergencies
  • Saving your wallet from costly restorative and cosmetic treatment down the line
