Routine visits to your dentist are essential in maintaining good dental health. According to the American Dental Association, you need to visit your dentist at least twice a year to ensure your oral health is in peak condition.
At Best Dental Care NJ in Newton, New Jersey, and Marlayna C. Best DMD in Andover, New Jersey, Dr. Best conducts comprehensive dental exams and convenient routine cleanings to ensure your smile is in top shape and recommends treatments to improve your dental health.
What Happens During a Dental Exam & Cleaning Session?
When you arrive at one of our offices in Andover, New Jersey, or Newton, New Jersey, for a dental exam and cleaning, you will receive a warm welcome from our staff and be guided to your appointment with Dr. Best.
During your dental exam, Dr. Best will conduct a thorough oral assessment to determine the state of your oral health and recommend the best course of action.
Here are the steps you can expect:
- Dr. Best will use a small circular mirror tool to carefully assess the inner side of your teeth and gums and check for any potential concerns. She will rule out signs of tooth decay, periodontal disease, and other common dental health issues that may arise.
- Next, Dr. Best or one of our dental hygienists, Nicole Caputo or Amanda Chirico, will thoroughly clean your teeth, removing all the plaque and dental calculus deposits from their surface. These are harmful bacterial substances that continue to reside in the corners of your mouth even after you brush and floss.
- For the next step, one of our hygienists will floss your teeth and polish them to add a vibrant touch to your smile.
- Our team will follow up these procedures with a professional fluoride treatment to remineralize your teeth. Remineralization refers to restoring all the minerals your teeth may have lost due to regular brushing and oral health issues. It helps prevent tooth decay.
Please reach out to Dr. Best or our staff at our Newton or Andover offices for further assistance and to learn more about dental exams and cleanings. Give us a call at (973) 383-5700 or (973) 786-5588, request an appointment online, or visit our offices. Our staff will be happy to assist you further!
