Your first visit to our Jenison office will include a thorough dental exam by the dentist in order to make an initial assessment. A preventative plan will be recommended, where you will come in for regular check-ups to include
Cleaning and Polishing
The cleaning will consist of removal of tartar, which has hardened on the teeth over time, along with the sticky plaque that has formed over the teeth. Plaque is a formation of bacteria and build up that will eventually cause inflammation. The dental instruments and techniques we use will safely remove this build up, followed by a polishing that removes stains and enhances the cleaning.
Gum Evaluation and Treatment
Your gums and the bone supporting your teeth will be checked for disease.
Oral Cancer Screening
The lips, tongue, throat, neck and gums are examined for any possible signs of oral cancer.
A full set of SAFE dental x-rays are performed and are crucial for giving the dentist information such as state of bone loss (if any), development deviations, abscesses, teeth coming in at the wrong position, tumors and other issues hiding within the teeth and gums. Early detection is important in treating many oral health issues
Investigation of Existing Work
Checking current crowns, bridges, fillings, etc. are done to check for any damage or need for replacement.
Restoring Your Beautiful Smile!
Preventative measures will always need to be part of a dental oral health plan. In circumstances where damage has already been done however, more intensive procedures may be needed to bring teeth back to their healthy appearance and operation. Our staff will keep you informed on the options that will relieve pain, repair damage, improve your bite and get you back to normal function and look.
