Dental Exams and Cleanings in Chaska & Excelsior, MN
Our supportive, family-friendly dental practice at Town Dental offers several preventive dental care services. As far as dentistry is concerned, prevention goes a very long way in the occurrence of unpleasant and stressful emergencies.
Our skilled dentists provide a wide range of preventive care solutions using the latest dental technology.
Twice-Yearly Exams and Cleanings Are Important
Regular home care and oral hygiene is a crucial part of good oral health. However, it cannot entirely prevent problems from occurring. The bristles of our toothbrush and flossing thread cannot reach certain places in the oral cavity, for example, the rear surfaces of teeth.
Oral plaque and tartar are more likely to form at these sites and lead to decay or cavities. Exams and cleanings in Chaska & Excelsior, MN help highlight potential problems and result in early intervention. Timely dental treatment helps prevent seemingly insignificant problems from blowing up into stressful emergencies.
What Happens during Exams and Cleanings?
If you’re a first-time patient at Town Dental, we will first record your medical and health history as well as insurance details, if any. Routine dental exams typically take about 45 minutes to complete and consist of the following procedures:
Manual Exam – One of our reliable dentists will evaluate your teeth and gums, for problems like cavities, decay, pus, bleeding, and chipped teeth.
Diagnostic Low-Radiation X-rays –We use the latest low-radiation x-ray technology to check for trouble spots inside the gums and between the teeth that may avoid detection during the visual exam.
Periodontal Disease Screening – Gum disease can be as painful as a toothache and may increase the risks of systemic diseases like stroke. We will examine your gums for redness, bleeding, gum pockets, and swelling.
Oral Cancer Screening – A simple, non-invasive and painless oral cancer screening can detect cancerous and precancerous signs of oral cancer. Early detection of oral cancer and treatment can save your life.
Teeth Cleaning – Our friendly hygienist will clean and polish your teeth to eliminate cavity-causing tartar and unsightly stains. A regular dental cleaning can also eliminate bad breath.
