Routine dental checkups are vital to good oral hygiene and are the best way to detect problems at their earliest stages. Here at Pacific Dental Group, we promote comprehensive dental care. Instead of evaluating our patients for a particular problem, we like to provide a complete treatment plan to restore functions and achieve esthetics. Full sets of Xray for new patients are always recommended for us to properly diagnose. We us only digital xrays and it emits 90 percent less radiation for minimum exposure.
The Academy of General Dentistry recommends checkups and regular cleaning twice a year. Your teeth are cleaned using special instruments to remove plaque from above and just below the gumline. Afterwards, your teeth are polished. It smoothes tooth surfaces so plaque is less likely to accumulate. We will follow up with oral hygiene instructions as well. Please discuss all discomfort and concerns with us at your visit.
