Lithia Springs Cosmetic & Family Dentistry provides comprehensive dental checkups for new and existing patients. These checkups enable our team to stay on top of your dental health and to detect any potential problems or issues so appropriate treatment can be administered in a timely manner. We advise our patients to visit us for a complete dental checkup at least once every six months.
A regularly-scheduled complete dental checkup consists of a professional cleaning as a way of helping you maintain the best possible health and appearance of your teeth. Our experts utilize top-of-the-line instruments to examine your teeth and mouth for any symptoms of tooth decay and gum disease. During this time, we also examine any existing tooth restorations, including all sealants, crowns, fillings and veneers for any signs of wear and tear, and we will recommend any needed replacements or repairs if necessary.
Professional Teeth Cleaning
A professional dental cleaning, or prophylaxis, is a deep cleanse of the entire mouth, including all teeth and gums. Our hygienists make use of specialized oral tools to remove any hardened plaque built-up upon the surface of one’s teeth and below the gum line. Next, we thoroughly cleanse and polish the teeth in order to eliminate surface stains and any remaining plaque. This process ensures cleanliness in all areas of the mouth, while also maintaining a sense of oral freshness and reducing bad breath.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Thorough examinations for any signs or symptoms of oral cancer are one of the most important components of any complete dental checkup. The experts at Lithia Springs examine the lips, tongue, face, gums, throat and oral tissues for any abnormalities that may be present. If anything noteworthy is discovered, we will conduct a biopsy as soon as possible.
Our practice features state-of-the-art digital radiography devices that are used to reveal any potential problems or issues with your oral structures. These devices enable our experts to instantly and safely view the hidden areas inside your mouth. This allows us to obtain the best possible understanding of any symptoms that may be affecting your oral health.
