Exam & Cleaning in Beverly Hills, CA
Proper dental care at home requires that you brush your teeth twice a day and floss at least once a day. But this is only enough to prevent the build up of bacteria in your mouth and delay any oral health issues in-between your dental checkups, when your mouth will be thoroughly cleaned by your dentist.
Joshua Ayoub, DMD can help you and your loved ones stay on top of your preventive dental care practices by professionally cleaning and examining your teeth twice a year, in Beverly Hills, CA. The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that you schedule your in-office teeth cleaning and dental exam every six months to help keep your teeth and gums cleaner and healthier, smile brighter, and prevent painful, costly, and inconvenient oral issues such as gum disease, tooth decay, bad breath, teeth discoloration, loose teeth, and so on from arising.
What to expect with Dental Exam & Cleaning in Beverly Hills, CA
Professional teeth cleaning and dental examinations are usually done simultaneously during your routine dental checkups that take between 30 and 60 minutes, depending on the condition of your teeth.
During a typical routine dental visit, you can expect:
1. A full dental examination
The first step is to physically examine the condition of your oral tissues. To do this, Dr. Ayoub uses a small mirror to check around your teeth and gums for signs of plaque and tartar buildup, stains, chips and cracks, gum disease, tooth decay, tooth discoloration, and loose teeth. He will also inspect the health of the jaw and perform oral cancer screening. Dental X-rays may be necessary for further diagnosis of impacted teeth, decay between teeth, jawbone damage, abscesses, and cysts or tumors. If there is any problem, Dr. Ayoub will recommend that you schedule another appointment promptly to get it fixed.
2. In-office dental cleaning
There are several steps for professional teeth cleaning as follows:
- Plaque and tartar removal
- Gritty toothpaste cleaning to gently scrub and polish your teeth.
- Expert flossing to clean potential trouble areas deep between your teeth
- Rinsing using a liquid fluoride rinse to remove any debris from your mouth.
