Posted .

Are you interested in knowing the particular details about your six-month checkup that is coming up? If so, our Plaza Dental Care dental team is happy to help you!

At the beginning of your treatment, your hygienist will deeply clean your chompers with special tools and techniques that remove the dangerous substances from the surfaces of your smile, like plaque and tartar. This is a beneficial treatment because it reduces your chances of falling victim to tooth decay and gum disease. Next, they will check your teeth and gums and look for any signs of trouble. Then, they will floss the nooks and crannies of your smile and will remove any plaque and food particles that live there. Finally, they will polish your teeth with a polishing treatment that will remove the surface stains from your smile.

At the end of your visit, Dr. Khashayar Khomejany will examine your entire mouth and look for any signs of tooth decay, gum disease, and enamel erosion. If they sees any signs, they will discuss your treatment options with you to help you strengthen your smile and oral health. In addition to this exam, they will also perform an oral cancer screening, which will involve inspecting your mouth and throat for signs of oral or pharyngeal cancer.

Now that you know the steps involved in your treatment, there is no need to be nervous or stressed. As you can see, your appointment should be easy and painless.
