Only the most modern dentistry treatments are available at our office because we are committed to giving patients beautiful smiles they can be proud of for years to come. However, we strongly believe that the best foundation for a stunning smile is a healthy mouth, which is why we take general dentistry very seriously. Dr. Vick, and our knowledgeable staff of dental professionals are dedicated to ensuring that all patients receive the most thorough care available during their twice-yearly dental examination and cleaning.
The Dental Examination
The first part of an initial dentist visit is a full mouth set of digital X-rays which allow our doctors to examine the health of your teeth and underlying jaw structure. During your examination, our doctors or one of our hygienists will use a small instrument and mirror to examine each tooth for cavities, plaque and damage. You will also undergo a gum examination where the doctor will look for any signs of gum disease. The final step in your general dentistry visit is a head and neck examination, which allow our doctors to inspect for any potential issues with glands or joints, such as TMJ disorder. After your thorough examination, our doctors will sit down with you to discuss the results of the exam and plan any necessary repairs or treatments.
Thorough Dental Cleaning
Based on your needs you will then be scheduled for a complete professional dental cleaning conducted by one of our gentle and caring dental hygienists. Even the most hygiene-dedicated patients who brush and floss regularly will not ever achieve the same results as that of a deep cleaning from one of our trained dental hygienists. For the best dental health and cavity prevention, it is important to have your teeth professionally cleaned, polished, and treated with fluoride twice a year.
