Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings - Denver, CO
Keeping Your Smile Bright and White
The American Dental Association recommends that patients visit their dentist every six months for a checkup and cleaning. During these appointments, our team will take X-rays to view the area of your mouth that lies below your gums as well as conduct a thorough visual and tactile examination of your teeth and gums. If we spot anything to be concerned about, we’ll let you know and walk you through our treatment recommendations. Finally, we’ll clean and polish your teeth, leaving your smile feeling refreshed and healthy. To request additional information or to schedule a visit, feel free to give us a call!
Why Are Regular Dental Checkups & Cleanings Important?
There are several reasons that routine dental visits are essential, but here are a couple of the main ones:
- Preventing costly future concerns :Since many oral health problems can go unnoticed until they begin to cause discomfort or complications, spotting them ahead of time can save you trouble and money in the long run! During your visit, our team will check for indications of problems such as acid reflux, oral cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and more.
- Maintaining your bright & healthy smile :We can use professional-grade materials to thoroughly polish your teeth and remove deep stains that you can’t get rid of with brushing and flossing alone. This ensures a cleaner and whiter smile moving forward!
What to Expect During a Dental Checkup
First, our team will perform a comprehensive oral examination to search for any underlying concerns. This usually involves a visual exam of your teeth, gums, and soft oral tissues, as well as taking X-rays to assess the roots of your teeth and the health of your jawbone. We’ll also check the integrity of any existing dental restorations (such as fillings, crowns, dentures, etc.), your gum health, and also offer an oral cancer screening. Simply put, we’ll check every nook and cranny of your mouth to ensure it’s in tiptop shape! We’ll then walk you through our findings and let you know if there are any present issues you’ll need to have addressed, like cavities or gum disease.
What to Expect During a Dental Cleaning
Before we wrap up your appointment, we’ll perform a professional cleaning to remove any debris, plaque, and tartar from your smile. Our team will utilize specialized tools to reach areas around your mouth that your toothbrush can’t access on its own. Removing this tartar is crucial towards the prevention of tooth decay! We’ll also use professional-grade polishing paste to carefully buff away stains and plaque, resulting in incredibly smooth and shiny pearly whites that you’ll love showing off.
Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer can be deadly if it’s not caught in its earliest stages, and we want to ensure our patients’ health, which is why we will perform a screening at each of your checkups. During these, we’ll carefully examine your lips, throat, and oral tissues in search of common signs of the disease, such as red and white rough patches on the inside of the cheeks. If we spot anything that looks suspicious, we’ll refer you for a biopsy and additional testing to ensure a quick diagnosis.
Nightguards for Teeth Grinding
Do you wake up with neck pain or sore jaw joints? Have you noticed that your molars look flat and ground-down? These are common signs of a condition called bruxism, or unconscious grinding and clenching of your teeth. To make sure that you don’t wake up with a broken or fractured tooth and to preserve your enamel, Dr. Soltani offers customized nightguards made from a durable, protective acrylic. Because they’re custom-fitted to your dental structure, they’re comfortable to sleep with and offer maximum protection.
