How Oral Health Exams Preserve Your Smile

Dental problems generally start small and grow over time. Catching these problems early can prevent them from becoming significant later. During an oral health exam, Dr. Rina Kotecha will inspect your mouth, gums, teeth, and jaw to detect signs of decay, gum infection, or other oral health issues that can cause permanent damage to your teeth. By catching and treating problems early, we can spare you from painful symptoms and preserve the health of your teeth.

Role of Professional Cleaning

Plaque and tartar buildup are some of the leading causes of cavities. Daily brushing and flossing help control plaque buildup on your teeth to protect the enamel from decay. However, brushing alone isn’t always effective in removing food particles from your back teeth in areas your brush can’t reach. This is where plaque can accumulate and eventually harden into tartar. Over time, plaque and harmful bacteria can spread to your gums, causing them to swell and bleed. This is the beginning of gum disease. Plaque can also eat away at the bone structure of your teeth, causing them to loosen and fall out.

Scaling and polishing also removes tartar and stain accumulated due to smoking.

Professional dental cleaning reaches all the areas that your toothbrush may miss. Routine cleaning:

  • eliminates plaque and tartar buildup on your teeth to reduce your risk of decay and gum disease
  • eliminates surface stains that dull your smile
  • leave your teeth healthy, white, and shiny
