Although visiting the dentist for a cleaning can seem a little frightening, it's a straightforward and important part of keeping good oral health. Maple Dentistry is a family dental office based in Livonia Michigan, where we offer dental hygiene cleanings for the entire family. These cleanings are thorough and address every part of your oral health - and they aren't scary! If you haven't been to our office in a while, or at all for that matter, it might help to have an idea of what to expect when you schedule a dental cleaning. Here's what you can expect when you come to our Livonia office for a dental cleaning:
Your Maple Dentistry dental hygienist will conduct a comprehensive examination of your head and neck prior to starting the cleaning process. This is done to look for any signs of tenderness, swelling, or other problems that might be related to your oral health.
During your cleansing, an oral cancer examination will also be performed. Your Maple Dentistry dental hygienist will examine your mouth, throat, and neck for any abnormal tissue or lesions that might be indications of oral cancer.
Your Maple Dentistry dental hygienist will go over your health history to look for any conditions or medications that might have an impact on your oral health.
Your Maple Dentistry dental hygienist may take x-rays of your teeth and gums depending on your specific needs. Any hidden oral problems, such as cavities or bone loss, that might not be noticeable during a visual examination can be found with the aid of X-rays.
Maintaining excellent oral health requires a healthy diet. Your dental hygienist at Maple Dentistry can offer nutrition advice and suggestions to assist you in selecting foods that are best for your teeth and gums.
Maintaining healthy teeth and gums requires good oral hygiene. Your dental hygienist at Maple Dentistry will give you advice on how to brush and floss correctly and suggest any other oral hygiene products that might be useful to you.
One of Maple Dentistry's registered dental hygienists will perform a thorough cleaning of your teeth during your cleaning appointment. They will polish your teeth to remove stains, floss between your teeth to remove any residual debris, and use specialized instruments to remove any plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth.
Your Maple Dentistry dental hygienist will also periodically chart the condition of your bone and gums to look for any indications of bone loss or gum disease. This assists in identifying problems early on when they are easier to address.
Dr. Haque will conduct a thorough examination of your teeth and gums following the conclusion of your cleaning. He will look for any indications of tooth decay, periodontal disease, or other conditions that might need to be treated. He will also talk about any suggested follow-up care and go over any x-rays that were obtained.
For the entire family to maintain good oral health, routine dental cleanings are a must. Our family dentistry practice is dedicated to offering thorough dental care that covers all aspects of your oral health, as described above.
